Call for Papers – NAPS 2021

NAPS 2021 is currently accepting paper submissions. Submit a Paper The IEEE Power and Energy Society and the Texas A&M University Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering are pleased to invite the submission of full-length papers (IEEE conference format, 6-page limit) to the 53rd annual North American Power Symposium (NAPS 2021). NAPS is a student-centered

Rescheduled Webinar on 5/5/2021: Coupled Infrastructure Modeling of Electric Grid and Transportation Networks

Speakers: Yanzhi Ann Xu (Texas Transportation Institute) and Komal Shetye (Texas A&M University) Abstract: The increasing proliferation of electric vehicles (EVs) is invariably increasing the coupling between two complex and critical infrastructure networks– the power grid and transportation systems. There has been a lot of research done in modeling EVs as loads in distribution grids, to evaluate

Webinar on 3/31/2021: Improving the Reliability and Health of Distribution Circuits Using Real-Time Diagnostics and Incipient Failure Detection Preventing Outages, Fire Ignition and Safety Hazards

Speakers: Dr. B. Don Russell, Mr. Carl Benner, Jeffrey Wischkaemper, and Karthick Manivannan (Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, TAMU) Abstract: Electric power distribution circuits are rigorously built to require little maintenance or inspection. Yet failures do occur leading to outages and unsafe conditions. It has long been known that periodic inspections offer only marginal improvements in

The 53rd North American Power Symposium (NAPS 2021) – November 14-16, 2021

The 53rd North American Power Symposium will be held at Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, from November, 14—16, 2021. NAPS, a student-centric conference, has been bringing together students, faculty, and researchers in the power and energy systems area since its inception in 1969. The purpose of this symposium is to provide a forum for

Online Video Short Course Titled Data Science and Machine Learning for Modern Power Systems

The course is designed to provide state-of-the-art introduction of data science 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 markets
