IEEE Austin COMSOC/SP Meeting

Next Generation Data and Systems for Utilities

Speaker: Bob Knox, The Structure Group

Oct 16, 2014, 6–8 pm

Bob Knox is the Historian and Asset Analytics lead with Structure’s Energy Management and Control Systems consulting practice. He has over 17 years’ experience in the North American energy and utility industry, including oil and gas, power generation and renewables, and energy transmission and distribution

As such the utility industry is undergoing an unprecedented rate of change and demand for data collection and storage. The proliferation of smart meter, smart grid, AMI, synchrophaser, and asset monitoring devices has resulted in an explosion of Big Data. This presentation explores Big Data concepts, trends, enables, and prevalent industry technologies and data systems including historian and other data systems. Learn more about how utilities are currently deploying Big Data infrastructure, managing information for real-time operational efficiencies, and leveraging terabytes (and more) of historical data for tangible long-term benefits.

Bob is responsible for the system assessment, solution design, and project delivery of historian integrations to SCADA and other related IT systems. He has extensive experience in the PI system and has worked with many clients to integrate their PI system to other critical business systems, such as financial settlements, generation scheduling, ISO operations and markets, and enterprise asset management
Bob has prepared and presented at numerous industry events such as the OSIsoft User’s Conference and the PI T&D conference on various technology topics such as PI integration for renewables, Enterprise Service Bus integration to PI, and integration framework and best practices.
Big Data is shaping the world around us in every way imaginable. The Internet of Things (IoT) is intricately weaved into society and leaves an indelible electronically recorded footprint along the way. Once ubiquitous analog devices such as clocks, phones, meters, medical devices, and even health and fitness gear have become powerful analytic tools capable of harnessing tremendous value for business and industry.
