IEEE PI2 Austin, January 2022, Tech Meeting via WebEx and In-Person (REMOTE & In Person) 6:30 pm Central, 7:30 pm Eastern

The WebEx information can be found in the meeting details here on vTools. Contact pi2-secretary@ieee.org if you have any questions or cannot find the WebEx details.

The January tech meeting will be hosted in a hybrid format - both virtual via WebEx and in person at Cover 3. To attend in person at Cover 3 you must meet the following requirements: 

  1. Sign up for the meeting on vTools
  2. Bring proof of vaccination and show it at the sign in - we will accept a physcial copy or a picture of the card say on your phone
  3. Be prepared to spend at least $20 in food or beverages to cover the cost of the room. 

For PDH Hours, please email the PI2 Secretary, Eric Meier at eric.meier@ieee.org or pi2-secretary@ieee.org.

Abstract:

Matthew will present a system-of-systems analysis of the different stakeholder goals, inter-relationships, and some of the wishful thinking that is going into current policies for Winterization of the Texas power infrastructure.  In addition to a high-level discussion of these issues, the presentation will show portions of a state-of-the-art systems engineering model in Unified Architecture Framework (UAF) that models the market structure, the players, and their behaviors. The simulation capabilities of the model will also be shown, demonstrating how changes in the policy parameters can change the behavior of the players in the market. The presentation will end with a discussion of how a more integrated systems approach to the problems could benefit the citizens, energy consumers, and taxpayers of the state of Texas.
