ESIC SP24 Power Seminar Series: The Down of Synchronized Transient Measurements for Grid Modernization
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.

Department of Mathematics & Statistics 41st Annual Ostrom Lecture: Dr. Randall LeVeque, Numerical Simulation of Floods and Tsunamis
WSU Pullman - Cleveland Hall

The annual T. G. Ostrom Lecture brings internationally renowned mathematics scholars to the WSU campus each spring. The lecture honors the late Professor Emeritus Theodore G. Ostrom, who retired from WSU in 1981 after 21 years as a WSU Mathematics Department faculty member. This year’s Ostrom Lecture titled “Numerical Simulation of Floods and Tsunamis” will be delivered by Dr. Randall LeVeque. Dr. LeVeque is an Emeritus Professor at University of Washington and a Fellow of SIAM, the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.
