ESIC SP24 Power Seminar Series: Intelligent Control of Networked Buildings – A Conceptual Framework
Presentation
WSU Pullman

Buildings are the biggest consumers of electrical energy in the USA – according to the US Energy Information Administration (EIA), buildings account for 40% of total electricity consumed during the year 2020; out of which commercial and residential buildings account for 18% and 22% electricity consumption respectively. As a result, buildings become a potential asset for energy usage optimization from the point of view of electric grids. However, energy usage optimization is not the only problem that buildings lead to, the coupled problems of providing Quality of Service (QoS) to the occupants and supporting the grid with ancillary services also need to be dealt with for the complete utilization of buildings as an asset to the electric grid. The solution strategies for these problems arise from the confluence of diverse fields of Power Systems, Thermal systems, Control Systems, and Machine learning. This talk will provide a conceptual framework to come up with solutions for utilizing buildings as a grid-edge resource at scale.

Dept. of Chemistry Seminar – Lei Fang, Texas A&M University
Workshop / Seminar
WSU Pullman - Fulmer Hall

The conformation and rigidity of the backbone of organic macromolecules are pivotal factors determining the properties of these polymers, as well as their associated supramolecular assemblies and materials. For instance, when designing and synthesizing conjugated polymers for electronic and optical applications, a primary objective is often to achieve a rigid, coplanar molecular conformation. This can be realized by fusing the aromatic backbone building blocks into a ladder-type structure, thereby creating a conjugated ladder polymer.

ESIC SP24 Power Seminar Series: The Down of Synchronized Transient Measurements for Grid Modernization
Presentation
WSU Pullman

The intricacies of operating and maintaining modern electric power systems are surging due to increased demand, integration of renewable energy resources, and the necessity for a reliable, resilient, and safe power infrastructure. To navigate these complexities, a new generation of data-driven solutions are coming to the fore that are enabled by high-fidelity synchronized transient measurements. These advanced analytics solutions offer a detailed view of grid conditions, which are instrumental in addressing the new requirements for grid modernization.

In this talk, we will delve into notable applications of synchronized transient measurements. We will examine the transformative impact of the solutions enabled by these measurements, illustrating how they can be used to detect and respond to transient disturbances with greater fidelity, and support the incorporation of distributed energy resources. By leveraging this new paradigm, utilities can achieve a forward-looking view of grid conditions, enabling them to anticipate issues and react more effectively to prevent power outages and asset failures. The implications for grid management in terms of strategic planning and change management will also be a key focus area.
