Power Society – Upcoming Meeting

Title: BESS Simulation-Operation and CO2 Flow in Power System

Abstract—Battery applications are increasing day by day from a single cell to MWh range in electric vehicles, PV systems, grid support, electric traction and so on for sustainable and green power system. Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) needs battery cells, PCS, EMS, HVAC, firefighting systems and so on. It has multiple voltage levels and handles both AC and DC systems. Most of the cases, corresponding manufactures provide limited data thus it is hard to model, simulate and optimize BESS properly. In this presentation, BESS simulation and operation will be focused followed by CO2 footprint flow for each load in the network will be shown in ETAP for sustainable and green power system.   

Presenter: Ahmed Saber received the Ph.D. degree from University of the Ryukyus, Japan, in 207. He is currently VP Optimization and AI, ETAP, USA. He develops tools for forecasting, optimization, operation and control of intelligent power systems in ETAP using state-of-the-art deterministic, stochastic and intelligent methods. His timely research has been funded nationally and internationally including DoE. He won the IEEE Outstanding Engineer Award in Southern California, USA among more than 12,000 engineers for his contributions on smart grid in 2012. He has published over 75 technical papers and holds 3 patents on intelligent power system. His research interests include AI/ML for power system, smart-grid, storage, renewables, power system forecasting-optimization, cyber-security, real-time systems, and operations research.

Volunteers Needed for St. Jude Marathon

If you are available on 2 Dec from 0530 to 1100, I can really use your help at Hydration Station 71 (HS71), on Front Street east of Bass Pro. We will serve Gatorade and/or water to about 16,000 runners.

HS71 is at about the 1 mile point on the 5K/10K course which starts at 7:00 am. The first runners will pass us going northbound on Front Street about 7:05 am.

The Half and Full Marathon starts at 8:00 am and the lead runners will pass us  at about 8:15 am (about mile 3) going southbound on Front Street. They proceed southbound on Front Street to Georgia Avenue and turn west (toward the Mississippi River) then turn north on Riverside Drive. At Union Avenue they turn east and run uphill to Front Street where they turn north . The lead runner will pass us again going northbound on Front Street at about 8:40 am (about mile 6.7). The last runners/walkers will pass us about 11:30.

I believe the slower runners will still be going by us southbound when the faster runners come by us going northbound.

We will need to be there from 5:30 am until about 11:45 am.

    Please email Elizabeth Hayes (ehayes6@cbu.edu) if you are interested
