Grid Reliability and Its Vital Signs

Share

Frequency, voltage, customer interruption. What do these vital signs tell us about the bulk power system? Learn the grid health underlying the vital signs and how to accurately assess them.  This lecture will explore reliability aspects of bulk power system so that you will develop a systematic, integrated understanding of how to assess the bulk power system reliability.  Additional indicators include energy emergency alerts, transmission outage rates, protection system operations, and resource reserve margin.  The presentation will also provide ranges, trends, and driving factors that influence changes in these indicators.

Biography:

Dr. Jessica Bian is a visionary leader and architect. She has spearheaded electric industry's reliability metrics and grid risk assessment. She is currently with Grid-X Partners. Before that, she was with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), Washington, DC. Previously, she was the Director of Performance Analysis at North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) in Atlanta, Georgia. Under her leadership, a total of 18 industry-wide reliability indicators were established to determine grid reliability, adequacy, and associated risks.  She is widely recognized as a pioneer and trusted world leader in the field.

Before joining NERC, Dr. Bian was with PJM, ERCOT and Westinghouse Electric. She published over 70 articles and received the 2014 IEEE PES Wanda Reder Pioneer in Power award for her technical achievements. She has been the PES Secretary since 2016, and is a candidate for the PES President-Elect, 2020-2021.
