CIGRÉ 2016

August 21, 2016 – August 26, 2016

The CIGRÉ Session provides a unique opportunity to listen to contributions from international senior executives as well as experts and specialists through official presentations, panel discussions, technical meetings and poster sessions. The Session also offers a social program starting with a welcome drink (which includes coffee breaks) to engage further discussions in a relaxed atmosphere.

Smart Wires is proud to announce that Frank Kreikebaum and two co-authors from Energy Exemplar recently learned that a joint paper was approved for oral presentation at the CIGRÉ 2016 General Session. This paper, which will be completed by January 4, 2016, discusses the work we funded to integrate our power flow controllers into PLEXOS, a modeling tool developed by Energy Exemplar to simulate power markets, dispatch of generators and optimal generation/transmission planning. The paper, entitled “Integration of Series FACTS Into Interconnect-scale Production Cost and Long-term Planning Tools” will assist industry stakeholders seeking to leverage our technology to reduce congestion or meet public policy initiatives such as renewable portfolio standards.
