by John D. McDonald
Director, Technical Strategy & Policy Development GE Energy Management – Digital Energy, IEEE Fellow, IEEE PES President (2006-2007), IEEE Division VII Director (2008- 2009)
Date: Thursday, May 2nd, 2013
Time: 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Place: Room EC-2300 in the second floor of FIU College of Engineering and Computing
10555 W. Flagler Street, Miami, Florida, 33174.
Abstract:The purpose of this talk is to familiarize participants with substation automation, its role in enterprise data management, and their roles in supporting smart grid, or grid modernization. The IEEE standard term, Intelligent Electronic Device (IED), is defined. The three levels of integration and automation activity in the substation are discussed. IED integration and substation automation are compared and contrasted. IED operational and non-operational data are defined. The three functional communication paths from the substation to the enterprise are shown. The enterprise virtual data mart is discussed. The relationship of substation automation and enterprise data management with smart grid are discussed.
