SF Power and Energy Society Technical Presentation April 18, 2018


                        Title:  Streaming Real-Time Analytics of Dynamic Data in Smart Grids

Presenter:  Dr. Le Xie - Associate Professor and Eugene Webb Faculty Fellow, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering,       Texas A&M University


How to conduct real-time analytics of streaming data in the smart grid? This talk offers a dynamic systems approach to utilizing emerging data for improved monitoring of the grid. The first example of the talk presents how to leverage the underlying spatio-temporal correlations of synchrophasors for early anomaly (e.g., subsynchronous oscillations) detection and data quality outlier detection. The second example presents a coupon incentive-based approach to engaging end users demand flexibility. The underlying theme of the work suggests the importance of integrating data with dynamic context-aware models in smart grid.

Lunch will be provided (includes vegetarian). There will be a $5 fee to IEEE Members and a $10 fee to Non Members. Payments to be made in person (cash or check) at the event.
