Current classes and programs:
Vendor Selection and Network Design for the Smart Grid
This program helps attendees evaluate their own regional characteristics with respect to deploying a successful smart grid network. The program covers network topologies with respect to the challenges of geography, urban, and rural installations. The course trains attendees to evaluate the features of the products from various vendors to ensure that the products selected will match attendees’ needs for a smart meter deployment.
Policies and Practices for the Smart Grid
Organizations that deploy smart grids can require substantial changes internally regarding the policies and procedures of the organization. Adapting the organization to successfully manage a smart grid can involve changes within various departments at the field, administrative, and executive levels. This course outlines and discusses issues such as retraining and redeploying employees, smart grid administrative procedures, and integrating the smart grid within older programs and mandates.
Identifying and Solving Smart Grid Deployment Problems
While most smart meters installations are trouble-free, installations are subject to a host of issues and problems never before encountered by utility and municipal employees. Radio interference, geographical and locale problems, and other issues may require remediation to achieve high-level network performance. Attendees learn how to prevent cost overruns and grid deployment delays by identifying trouble spots before they affect the network.
Harvesting and Managing Smart Grid Data
The benefits of installing a smart grid require back-end data harvesting, analysis, and management to be fully realized. This program covers tools, practices, and analysis methodologies to ensure that an organization gains the full benefits of its smart grid program.
