Legal Essentials for Utility Executives: May 19 to 25, 2013 and October 6 to 12, 2013 This rigorous, two-week course will provide electric utility executives with the legal foundation to more fully understand the utility regulatory framework, the role of more...
Development and Management of Projects and Products targeting the Distribution and Measurement of electrical energy. Defining characteristics and technical functions of Smart Meters and applications in the area of Smart Grid and derivatives.
Development projects involving RF and Power Line Communication Technology and its applications in Broadband and Narrowband.
Development technology in partnership with Brazilian Utilities since 1993, with operations in Design/Manufacture and Testing Laboratory/Field.
I have already worked several years with the - Smart Grid - in several countries including Brazil, China, Russia and Kazakhstan, with the aim of adding intelligence distribution networks of electric energy.
I have over 15 years experience working with Smart Grid - RF and Power Line Communication Technology - X10/Intellon/DS2 - Brazil/China/Russia/Kazakhstan with projects already implemented in several Energy Utilities.
Technical Manager of a project involving Smart Grid developed by a partnership between the Sistron and Cemig, which had as objective AMR/AMI and DSM
Developing a project of AMR/AMI and DSM for the Republic of Kazakhstan, involving the local Energy Utility and Sistron.
eveloping a project of PLC/BPL - a partnership involving the FITEC (Foundation for Technological Innovation) and Semp Toshiba, this project was directed to the line of the Semp Toshiba Lap Tops.
Technical Consulting - Smart Grid - in the development of an SMART METER with Shunt Resistor - Relay Gruner entered into the meter.
Testing and Approval of Project Smart Grid - AMR / AMI / DSM / HAN in Russia.
Greater complexity along with variables implies greater risk of power outages, and potentially more substantial impact of power outages as well, as one would expect structural dependency on power to increase enormously under a Smart Grid Scenario.
I think that it is common sense that the definition and understanding of the problem is always the first step to creating a solution. The main obstacle to the implementation and development of an "Intelligent Network" is that it is designed, engineered and thought to be used by the "Consumer of the Future", but who must support and pay the "Bill" are the "Current Consumer".
Distributed Generation will bring flexibility, reliability and security in the electric industry. While bringing many benefits, there are still enormous barriers to their implementation. Distributed Generation should meet the needs of individual consumers and communities and offer some support and intelligence...
The Smart Grid Projects increases the Complexity of the energy sector, and that brings more rapid changes, and follow the definitions of these changes are an additional challenge for the energy sector.
The only way to bring innovation, new ideas and intelligence for the Energy Sector is to accelerate competition. No other initiative will be successful, if we do not take the competition and the option of choice for consumers. Smart Grid will fail as a measure of energy conservation, unless suppliers motivate people to participate and demonstrate that change is worth it.
Storage energy is critical to developing the full potential of Smart Grid, without this tool some promises about a SMART GRID may not be met. The development of this technology is not only important for Electric Cars, but for other areas of the Grid.
There are many definitions of DSM and Demand Response, Demand Response is a new name possibly the most charming for the Demand Side Management - DSM. The proponents of the Demand Response argue that the two terms are not necessarily equal.
The Smart Grid will provide tools and information essential to the solution or at least reducing these losses to an acceptable level, if there is acceptable level for this. Today this division between Technical and Commercial losses that the proportion of 58% for Technical losses and 42% for Commercial losses.
The break in the Monopoly in the area of Electric Power Distribution is closer than we could imagine, education, information and knowledge is a combination similar to an avalanche, know how it starts, but not when it ends.
The problem is not in product design, but in its daily operations, is where the challenge is presented. Utilities and Consumers will have to find different paths, but both convergent and this will not be easy, alone, technology may not be able to establish or even bring the expected benefits.
Consumers were previously treated in a homogeneous, today with the introduction of new technologies each consumer will have different features. For the success of Utilities in developing this new scenario, they must have the ability to understand the different distribution topologies and further understand the consumption profile of each class of consumer.
What is the dream of Utilities with the development and deployment of Smart Grid, if the utilities could direct the policies of the planning area of Smart Grid, we'll see that the area associated HAN and the Consumers would be placed in the background?
