Short Course on Fundamentals of Grid-Connected Photovoltaic Systems is Held in Person at TAMUS on April 24-26, 2024

This course covers the basics of grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) systems. Starting with the solar resource, we will learn about how photovoltaic energy conversion is used to produce electric power. The course will highlight the photoelectric effect, how we model the electrical characteristics of PV cells, environmental conditions that effect the operation and performance of the

Introduction of Artificial Intelligence in Power Systems Short Course is Held in Person at TAMUS on March 4-6, 2024

The course is designed to provide state-of-the-art introduction of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning that is tailored for power engineering applications. The electricity industry is transforming itself from a hierarchical, passive, and sparsely-sensed engineering system into a flat, active, and ubiquitously-sensed cyber-physical system. The emerging multi-scale data from synchrophasors, smart meters, weather, and electricity

(Associate Professor, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Texas A&M University; Assistant Director for Education, TEES Smart Grid Center) will present the webinar titled “Opportunities for Scalable Cyber-Physical Optimal Response in Power Systems” at 3 P.M. CST on February 28, 2024. Register in advance here. After registering, the confirmation email contains information about

Short Course “Energizing Electric Grid Analysis with PowerWorld Simulator” to be Held in Person at TAMUS Was Postponed to April 30-May 2, 2024

The design and operation of large-scale electric grid requires a variety of different engineering studies and simulations. With the rapid grid transitions over the last several years, including the addition of large amounts of renewable and distributed resources, doing this analysis requires leveraging state-of-the-art engineering tools. The purpose of this 21 hour short course is

Completed Short Course “Primer on the Planning and Operation of Large-Scale Electric Grids” Held in Person at TAMU on January 30-February 1, 2024

(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

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

Webinar on 12/06/2023: Wide-Area Resilience for Power System Dynamics

Sandip Roy, Ph.D. (Professor, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Texas A&M University; Director, Global Cyber Research Institute, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station) will present this webinar at 3 P.M. CST on December 6, 2023. Abstract: My group’s recent research on power systems has been focused on coordinating sensing and control assets to manage network-wide swing dynamics
