Signal Processing and Communication Challenges for the Internet of Energy

Join us April 8th for a presentation and discussion on:

Sponsored by IEEE Signal Processing Society; Co-sponsored by IEEE Power and Energy Society

Speaker:   Dr. Anna Scaglione    Professor, Dept. Electrical and Computer Engineering,  Arizona State University


In this talk we will discuss signal processing models of the behavior of electric appliances that can support the smart electric power grid. An ecosystem of Electric Vehicles, Smart Thermostats and Smart Lighting will allow customers to interact with the market of electricity directly, optimizing the customer preferences while better exploiting the variable production from renewable energy, from distributed “prosumers” and centralized plants alike. The opportunities for good are immense but there are several challenges. Unlike the internet, which is managed in a decentralized fashion, power systems are large vertically integrated infrastructures and, thus, the interaction between market forces is hampered by the curse of dimensionality. We will discuss the issue of sifting through big data to decide the schedule and closing the loop on a large number of transactions. While the grid is already coping with significant vulnerabilities as is the Internet of Energy can significantly expand the reach of malicious cyber-attacks. We will touch upon the issue of cyber-security and privacy that arise in general with the Internet of Things and with the Internet of Energy in particular.
