Scheduled Demonstrations

Tuesday, February 18th

  1. Cyber-Physical System Security for Smart Grid
    Presenter: Dr. Gelli Ravikumar, Iowa State University Summary: The modern power grid is a sophisticated Cyber-Physical System (CPS) that forms the lifeline of our society. The grid’s reliable, secure, and resilient operation is of paramount importance to national security and economic well-being. In this demonstration session, we demonstrate hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) CPS security testbed-based attack-defense experiments focused on wide-area monitoring and control applications. We will also demonstrate various multi-stage cyber attack-defense experiments similar to Ukrainian 2015 and the grid impact characteristics against multiple PMU-based attacks.
  2. Power-View, A Smart Grid Software
    Presenter: Jack Mertens, Software Engineer, Cybirical Summary: Power-View is a cloud-based software for tracking grid assets from the construction phase to the asset management phase. From transmission lines to substations, Power-View uses a real-time, GIS interface to solve the problem of data inconsistency by providing a single source of truth for assets. In addition to demonstrating construction management and asset management use cases in Power-View, the demonstration will also highlight potential application sin storm restoration and emergency response. The demonstration will simulate scenarios that require real-time asset and document updates, as well as other smart capabilities and use cases.
  3. Interactive Simulation of Power System Real-Time Operations
    Presenter: Komal Shetye, Assoc. Research Engineer, Texas A&M University Summary: This demonstration will feature a dynamic simulation environment (DS) developed for standalone and multi-user dynamic simulation of power systems. This includes tools and communication capabilities for monitoring, visualization, and control. The DC allows multiple users to interact with the simulation (i.e. the grid), to mimic real-world scenarios such as grid operations where different entities such as Transmission Operations, Generation Operations, RTOs/ISOs are involved. The goal of this environment is to study complex system conditions, extreme events, and future scenarios, and to develop new methodologies for grid operations in order to address current and forthcoming challenges.
  4. VigilantGrid, A Smart Grid Software
    Presenter: Luke Hebert, Cyber Engineer, Cybirical Summary: This demonstration will be a hands-on simulation of a mobile substation consisting of RTUs, IEDs, and Automation Controllers paired with our VigilantGrid software that collects, interprets, and displays cyber security and grid-related events from the devices in that mobile substation. Participants can walk up to a configured and powered relay or RTU, unplug the cat5 cable from its ethernet port, and see that event transmitted to and presented in our VigilantGrid software real-time.

IEEE ISGT 2020 is a forum to discuss the latest issues, trends, and emerging and innovative technologies for grid modernization in the face of challenges of a rapidly changing environment resulting from the dramatic increase in deployments of renewable and Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) and the emergence of new business and operating concepts and services. The PES would like to invite participants to submit a demonstration to be showcased during the conference. The demonstration must feature a live simulation and/or interactive piece to engage with conference participants. All submittals are expected to feature the latest and most innovative technologies for grid modernization to align with this years’ theme.

Demonstrations can include (but are not limited to) the following topics:

  1. Integration of Renewables
  2. Smart Grid Software
  3. Energy Storage
  4. Microgrids
  5. Electric Vehicles
  6. Internet of Things (IoT)
  7. Smart Cities
  8. Analytics
  9. Application Criteria

Proposals must provide a clear description of the demonstration, the importance of the demonstration to the industry and any other relevant information. The proposals will be reviewed and selected based on relevance to the industry, academic merit, level of interaction and the ability to fit within the desired space. Each demonstration will be showcased on a 4 ft. x 6 ft. table. Space is limited.
