My “Smart Grid” course continues apace. Highlights have included lectures by Andres Carvallo on the architecture of the grid, and several lectures on existing and upcoming “smarts” at the wholesale generation and transmission level, including wholesale operations by Dave Maggio, new transmission technologies by Brad Bell, and human factors by Mike Leggatt.

The class has now shifted to topics at the heart of the “conventional” smart grid, namely distribution and end use, including smart grid ecosystem analysis by Ingmar Sterzing and residential power quality by Scott Hinson. Oh, and yes, we just had a midterm.
