Webinar on New Developments in the Application of Weather Information in Electric Grid Analysis Rescheduled to 1/24/2024

While it is widely recognized that weather impacts electric grid operations and planning, historically weather information has only been implicitly included in common grid analysis packages. Building on a presentation from last year, this presentation provides new developments in the application of weather information in the power flow and the optimal power flow (OPF). Key

Completed Short Course “Electric Grid Impacts of Geomagnetic Disturbances” Held at TAMU on November 1-2, 2023

(Photos Below) Geomagnetic disturbances (GMDs), caused by solar coronal mass ejections, have the potential to significantly impact the operation of the high voltage electric grid by causing geomagnetically induced currents (GICs).  Over the last decade there has been significant research, industry interest, and regulatory concern about the impact of GMDs on the high voltage electric

Completed Short Course “Primer on the Planning and Operation of Large-Scale Electric Grids” Held at TAMU on October 24-26, 2023

(Photos Below) Electricity is the lifeblood of our modern society, and for most this electricity is supplied by large-scale, interconnected electric grids.  Engineered as the ultimate in plug-and-play convenience, the wall outlet is actually the gateway to the world’s largest and most complex machine.  The goal of this course is to provide a comprehensive introduction
