Completed Short Course “Fundamentals of Electric Transmission Planning” Held in Person at TAMUS on March 19-21, 2024

High voltage electric grids are some of the world’s most complex machines, whose present high levels of reliability have been achieved through careful planning. The purpose of this three-day short course is to provide a comprehensive coverage of the processes used in doing this planning. The course philosophy is to provide a practical, hands-on approach

Short Course “Energizing Electric Grid Analysis with PowerWorld Simulator” Is Held in Person on 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
