PES Distinguished Lecturer Seminar: Resilience is everybody responsibility!

#grid #power #smart #batteries #energy

IEEE PES Columbus Chapter along with Central Indiana Chapter is excited to have PES Distinguished Lecturer - Professor Antonio Conejo from OSU, an IEEE Fellow, an INFORMS Fellow, and an AAAS Fellow, to give us a seminar (and webinar) on power distribution system resilience. The seminar will be held at AEP Transmission headquarter building (8600 Smiths Mill Road, New Albany, OH 43054) and online thru Teams. Free food and beverages will be provided to in-person attendees. 1 PDH will be available.


Pursuing overall resilience enhancement of a power distribution system, we discuss a coordinating framework that involves cooperation between the supplying utility and proactive consumers. Such framework enables identifying solutions that are optimal for both the leading partner – the electric utility – and proactive consumers. Resilience improvements include installing batteries and/or distributed energy resources, involving electric vehicles, and undergrounding distribution lines. The proposed framework can be helpful to distribution planners, who can use it to optimally coordinate resilience investments by the electric utility and proactive consumers.
