EXPERTS: Electric Grid Researchers Available to Discuss Grid Reliability and Resiliency
BERKELEY, CA (Feb. 18, 2021) – Amid record cold temperatures, the electric grid throughout much of Texas has gone down, leaving millions without power. Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, a U.S. Department of Energy national research lab, is home to a…
November 9, 2020 Web Feature PNNL Researchers Speed Power Grid Simulations Using AI
PNNL’s new Smart Power Grid Simulator, or Smart-PGsim, combines high-performance computing and artificial intelligence to optimize power grid simulations without sacrificing accuracy.
$39 Million to better integrate renewables into power grid
The National Science Foundation has awarded $39 million to a team of engineers and computer scientists at the University of California San Diego to build a first-of-its-kind testbed to better understand how to integrate distributed energy sources such as solar panels, wind turbines, smart buildings and electric vehicle batteries into the power grid. The goal is to make the testbed available to outside research teams and industry by 2025.
The Internet of Things Brings a Web of Promises and Perils to the Smart Grid, Experts Say
PNNL researchers established an Internet of Things Common Operating Environment (IoTCOE) laboratory to explore the risks associated with IoT connectivity to the internet, the energy grid and other critical infrastructures.
High-Performance Computing Helps Grid Operators Manage Increasing Complexity
PNNL, in partnership with industry, has developed a computational tool called HIPPO, which accelerates the increasingly complex calculations grid operators must make in scheduling energy resources to meet the next day’s forecasted electricity demand.
Declassify Attacks and Incentivize Resilience
– Today in view of rising global tensions, bold new recommendations were issued by the National Commission for Grid Resilience (NCGR) to secure and build a more resilient grid in the United States, the world’s greatest consumer of electricity.
