STC on Computing and Smart Grid

Goals and Scope

 

The purpose of Computer and Smart Grid Special Technical Community is to stimulate investments in computing technologies (including research and development, standards, and education) that will enable achievement of Smart Grid visions and improve the performance and capability of electric power systems (i.e., more efficient, faster, reliable, resilient, etc.).

 The Computer and Smart Grid STC provides networking and professional service opportunities to all people interested in advancing the concept of Smart Grid.

Introduction from the Chair

To my new Friends and Colleagues,

The IEEE Computer Society’s Computing and Smart Grid Special Technical Community (CSG-STC) wants to stimulate investments in computing technologies that will enable achievement of Smart Grid visions and improve the profitable performance and capability of electric power systems.

Please join our dynamic community that has full support of the leadership of the Computer Society. Computing represents some of the greatest challenges in the ever expanding application of intelligence and autonomy to the control of the largest engineered system in the world, how we get our electricity.

This brings about questions in computing application such as standardization in design, scalability, modular design and design description of reusable application software, for interoperable control and automation applications, secure information exchange, life cycle affordability, facilitating competition and collaboration, etc. Therefore the CSG-STC has several over-arching themes. These may be:

Smart Grid and Next Generation SCADA, Smart Grid and the Internet of Things, Smart Grid as an Autonomic System of Systems, Smart Grid and Big Data, and Smart Grid as a Business Machine.

Computing Technologies of interest are things like: Computation, Information systems, Networks, Protocols, Frameworks, Middleware, Resource management, Software, Operating systems, Data management, Information assurance, Security and privacy, etc.

Primarily the CSG-STC needs to answer two questions. In such a complex and rapidly changing computer environment:

1. How do we start building the next generation Smart Grid with what we have or know today?

2. What research and development are needed today to build the Smart Grid after Next?

Hope you join soon!  There are lots of ways to get involved.

Take care always,

Dave
