The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, or “IEEE (News - Alert),” a global technical professional association that is dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity, has announced that it has issued a comprehensive collection of feature articles on Smart Grid in its March 2010 Special Issue.
The issue, titled ‘=”Smart Grid… Putting it All Together” is available for download now. The institute offers its insight upon on a wide variety of areas ranging from aerospace systems, computers and telecommunications to biomedical engineering, electric power and consumer electronics through its publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities.
IEEE has also declared that it is going to host a number of conferences globally that will focus on smart grid or include insightful educational sessions presented by some of the world’s most renowned smart grid experts. The institute has also issued a Call for Papers for its first International Conference on Smart Grid Communications.
The new publication features a number of smart grid feature articles, which finds answers to a variety of queries such as what is the “Grid of the Future”, and are we ready for it, why phasor measurements are so important to real-time monitoring on a Smart Grid, why security is so critical to the smart grid, why energy storage technologies are critical to the integration of renewables into wholesale markets, what wind power is, and how large-scale solar power can be accommodated on smart grid.
The institute has also issued a call for papers for SmartGridComm, its first International Conference on Smart Grid Communications. The event, which has been sponsored by the IEEE Communications (News - Alert) Society, will be held at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, MD, October 4-6, 2010. The paper submission deadline is May 1, 2010 and the interested authors can visit the IEEE Web site for submitting their original contributions.
March 2010, IEEE announced to celebratethe 30th anniversary of its 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee, or “LMSC,” as an active standards development organization. The IEEE 802 LMSC was created in March of 1980 to bring together forward thinking technology leaders to develop interoperable network standards for computers and office equipment. Further, the committee has continued to develop leading innovations for local and metropolitan area networks for copper, fiber optic media, and wireless technologies for local, regional, and personal network applications.
