Tutorial: Distribution Automation and  Integration with DERs and Microgrids

Tutorial: Distribution Automation and Integration with DERs and Microgrids

This tutorial on the first day of the 2016 IEEE PES T&D Conference & Expo introduces the intuitive concepts, fundamental theories, practical technologies on distribution system modeling, automation management, including the core functionalities and real use cases of the Distribution Automation and Management Systems (DA/DMS) and the advanced applications in Smart Distribution, as well as the integration with Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) and microgrids.

The audience will include power system planning/operation engineers, project/product managers, business leaders in power utilities, smart grid solution providers, system developers, research institutes, as well as individual researchers, college students and other individuals working on or interested in the Smart Distribution Solutions.

The course will cover the following break-down topics: overall framework and architecture of DA/DMS Systems in Smart Distribution, Distribution System Modeling for automation and management, Static and Dynamic Data for DA/DMS, Advanced Real-time and Analytic Applications in DMS, DMS integration with other systems (OMS, AMI, DRM) in Smart Distribution, Advanced DMS in integration with DERs through DERMS (Distributed Energy Resource Management) and New Trend in ADMS Development.
