Applying Meteorology in Power System Planning and Operations
UVIG is pleased to announce the 2017 edition of its premier industry event, the UVIG Forecasting Workshop – Applying Meteorology in Power System Planning and Operations.
This year’s event will be held at the Renaissance Atlanta Midtown Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia and will bring together experts from North America, Europe, and around the world to explore the state-of-the-art in wind, solar and distributed generation forecasting and meteorology application to electric power system planning and operations.
About The Event
This workshop is intended for utilities and power system operators, market operators, energy traders, companies associated with producing and using variable generation, EMS providers, research groups working to improve VG output forecasts, and companies involved in forecasting and integration services for all forms of variable generation. The purpose of this workshop is to help participants to:
- Develop a better understanding of the value of VG forecasting in the day-ahead, hour-ahead and real-time periods
- Develop a better understanding of the probabilistic information contained in wind and solar forecasts and how it can be used in practical applications
- Explore enhancements for the use of VG forecasts in the scheduling and operation of power systems and markets
- Develop a better understanding of the applications of meteorology to power system planning and operation
- Develop a better understanding of VG forecasting developments that are underway or on the horizon
- Continue an ongoing dialogue between the VG forecasting research, development, applications and user communities
Topics to be covered include:
- Meteorology for power system planning
- Forecasting for behind-the-meter PV generation
- Forecasting for wind and solar generation in real-time
- Forecasting trials, benchmarks and evaluations
- Integrating DER into the markets
- VG forecasting and energy trading
- VG forecasting for market operations
- VG forecasting developments internationally
- Forecasting and operating in a high VG future
- What do we see on the horizon
Schedule of Events
The three-day event begins at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, June 20 and concludes on Thursday, June 22 at 12:45 p.m.
