Session Details

Enterprise Model Management System at CAISO

Enterprise Information and Utility Semantics

Big data has huge potential but utilities need to fully leverage its value. This session will review what Hydro-Quebec and the California ISO are doing with semantics and data modeling.

Smart Grid Distribution Planning Based on Measurements

DER Integration in Electric Distribution Grids

A major challenge for utilities is integrating the growing amount of distributed energy resources (DER) into the power grid. This session presents experiences and best practices regarding how utilities in Europe are mastering the challenge and how integration of DER affects their medium- and low-voltage systems.

Network Studies at Wachtendonk: Eyes in the Power Grid

DER Integration in Electric Distribution Grids

Design and Implementation of a Communication Network to Support Real-time Distribution Feeder Automation

Advanced Technologies at Rural Electric Cooperatives

Three technology-leading cooperatives will discuss communications technologies they use for substation and distribution line automation. These utilities are deploying some of the most advanced technologies in remote substations and across large rural landscapes.

Improved Distribution Fault Location at Oncor

Automated Fault Detection, Isolation and Restoration

Representatives from three large electricity suppliers share their real-world experiences implementing fault location and restoration through the use of updated network models and DMS technologies.

Panel Session

Theft Identification with Smart Meter Data Panel

Traditional data analytics methods often rely on simple methodologies to identify trends and patterns, which can produce results that aren't always accurate. The panelists will discuss how predictive data science allowed them to use smart meter data to determine the most likely behaviors and identify energy theft and fraud.

Innovative Approach to Develop Smart Grid Analytics Capability: Why Utilities Need to Get a Better Handle on Data Volume Before Making Use of Analytics

Big Data and AMI: Making the Most of Analytics

AMI systems can produce vast amounts of data. Before you lose control, attend this session and hear case studies that will help you learn about data integration, building analytics and using the results in an operations environment.
