Energyworx Seminar at LBNL

December 17th, 2015 by

On the 18th of December, 12:00 – 13:00 PTS, Darin Olson – Engineer and Research Scientist with 20 years of high technology experience – leads an Energyworx seminar at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL).

Darin will talk about the electric grid benefits resulting from devices that can measure voltage, frequency and phase angle at rates >100Hz. In this Energyworx application, Darin discusses how higher frequency data collection can identify grid issues more precisely than current SCADA systems. Specifically, the enhanced resolution of grid measurements can pinpoint the source of the disturbance, acting as an early warning tool for grid operators. Such a tool can open up new reliability strategies including microgrid interaction and more efficient distributed energy resource (DER) integration.

Matt Ross – Sales Director & Renewable Energy Strategist will explain Energyworx’ use of cloud platform services and how our platform can ingest and visualize data from building and grid sensors such as smart thermostats and micro-synchrophasors. This includes high frequency data collection for a variety of use cases for the energy and utility industry.

The seminar will close with device disaggregation strategies and the correlation between disaggregation accuracy and data granularity.

Please visit the Berkeley Labs website for more information on the seminar, including dial-in and web connection details. We welcome audience participation around open research questions such as ideal data acquisition frequency, hardware/software roadmap and market entry strategy.

We look forward to your attendance and participation!
