Race Ahead with PNNL at the NASPI Vendor Show

October 23, 2013 6-8 PM

Crowne Plaza Chicago O'Hare Hotel, Rosemont, Illinois

Grid operators need your advanced solutions to move ahead.  Our innovations can expand your product line or take your existing products to the next level of performance.

Check out our available grid analytics technologies in 1) Network and Data Management for Grid Analytics, 2) Power Grid Simulation and Analysis, 3) Visualization and Decision Support for Grid Operators, and 4) Demand Response.

Network and Data Management for Grid Analytics

Commercial suppliers are working with utilities to develop a future power grid that will deploy millions of smart meters and other smart grid devices with various data transfer speeds. The resulting data volume will be tremendous. New tools and approaches will be needed to quickly retrieve and analyze these volumes of data so that power operators and planners can make real-time decisions.

Partner with PNNL for innovative tools and technologies that address the gaps in networking and real-time data management. The technologies described here incorporate algorithms, techniques, and software tools to improve a company’s existing commercial products or add new ones.

Power Grid Simulation and Analysis

Across the world, smart devices, distributed wind power plants, and roof-top photovoltaic panels are changing the nature of the power system. Commercial vendors need modeling and simulation tools that can support the seamless integration of these new assets.

Partner with PNNL to see how our innovative tools and technologies can help you solve the data simulation and analysis challenge. The technologies described here incorporate advanced analysis techniques that make sense out of complicated data streams, predict the state of the power system, and enable the integration of renewable energy.

Visualization and Decision Support for Grid Operators

As the scale and complexity of the power grid increase, so does the need for tools that can transform relevant data streams into visual formats of actionable information. To develop the solutions that will help analysts make effective tactical and strategic grid management decisions, commercial vendors need to offer products that convert large-amounts of data into accessible and understandable knowledge.

Partner with PNNL to see how our leading visualization and decision support technologies can help you develop the products that operators and planners need. The technologies described here incorporate coordinated visualization interfaces, human factors research, automated reasoning, and online aids. All technologies provide a modular, extensible software environment that can be used for both real-time grid operations as well as long-term planning.

Demand Response

As building new transmission lines and power generation become more costly, grid operators seek demand response methods that reduce electricity peak demand. To deliver the predictable, reliable, and flexible results that grid operators require, commercial vendors need the latest proven tools for reducing demand.

Partner with PNNL, the nation’s premier power grid research lab, and get access to field-tested demand response tools that boost grid reliability and effectively enable efficient grid management. The technologies described here incorporate hardware and software applications that seamlessly manage electricity use in residential and commercial settings.
