This three-part webcast series highlights the fast-changing world of clean energy, smart grid, and energy storage technologies. Learn how you can apply graphical system design techniques to significantly accelerate the development of green engineering systems. Also gain an inside perspective on green design, prototyping, and commercialization from green engineers around the world and NI developers working hard to speed the adoption and proliferation of grid-scale, cost-effective clean energy systems.

Extreme Green Engineering: Making Clean Energy Cheaper Than Fossil Fuels

Presenters: Brian MacCleery, Owen Golden, Various National Instruments Green Engineering Grant Companies

The tipping point when clean energy becomes cheaper and more abundant than fossil fuels may be sooner than you think. As energy technology becomes information technology, the performance of clean energy systems increases exponentially while cost comes down. Hear from several green engineering companies that are pushing the technological boundaries using graphical system design techniques to speed their design, prototyping, and commercialization of advanced embedded instrumentation and control systems for energy storage, smart grid, and clean energy generation. NI Vice President of the  Global Energy Segment Owen Golden will also present a special section on smart grid applications that are pushing technological boundaries to bring the smart grid to life.

Digitizing the Power Grid: Smart Sensing and Analytics Fundamentals

Presenters: Roberto Piacentini, Jack Arnold, Brett Burger, Various National Instruments Green Engineering Grant Companies

The proliferation of smart networked embedded systems throughout the grid will revolutionize the way electricity is produced, consumed, and distributed and will act as a foundation pillar for a clean energy future. Hear directly from NI developers about the smart-grid applications and tools they are developing with NI LabVIEW software and reconfigurable embedded system technology. The goal of this technical session is to arm you with information you can apply to your own smart-grid applications. What can you do with an embedded instrumentation system capable of real-time processing and analytics? What’s the importance of sensors? How can you create a synchrophasor measurement unit (PMU) to intelligently monitor power flow throughout the grid?

Smart-Grid Control Systems: Moving Towards a Self-Healing Grid

Presenters: Todd Walter, Todd Dobberstein, Various National Instruments Green Engineering Grant Companies

Smart embedded systems that combine instrumentation, analytics, and control can make the grid more like the Internet – self-diagnosing and self-healing, distributed rather than centralized, and bidirectional rather than unidirectional. This session explains the fundamentals of smart-grid control systems and makes the case for basing your designs on reconfigurable off-the-shelf technology and high-level programming tools that can lower cost, risk, and development effort from the early stages of design all the way through high-volume commercial deployments.
