Smart Grids

Greetings from the Australian National University in Canberra, where "Energy Conversations: Smart Grids" is being hosted with the Australian Institute of Energy (Canberra Branch).

  • Paul Scott – PhD Student, AI Group, Research School of Computer Science: Paul talked about how to optimize power distribution on the grid. This assumes that home have intelligent devices which can schedule power use.
  • Nick Engerer – Associate Lecturer, ANU Fenner School of Environment and Society: Mich is researching how to measure the power output of solar panels. He showed graphs of the effect of fog and clouds in Canberra on solar power output. This neatly complements Paul's research, as one is about demand for power and the other is about supply.
