SF IAS / PES Joint Meeting Special - New Power Reliability Trends and the Application of Microgrids and Battery Storage Solutions

Share

In addition to natural disasters, there are several other power distribution related trends that are affecting the ability of maintaining emergency power during and after an unplanned outage, especially a prolonged outage.  This discussion will review the market trends and their impact on maintaining power resiliency. An overview of the history of the grid will be provided, and the current trends driving the need for Microgrids and battery storage applications.  Topics will include:  

  •        Grid Power Distribution History
  •        Megatrends, MicroGrids & Customer Segment Drivers
  •        MicroGrid Functions & Capabilities
  •        Bidirectional Inverter / PGE & Military MicroGrid
  •        Portland General Electric MicroGrid Video
  •        Eaton MicroGrid Video 
  •        Controls & Cybersecurity: SMP Gateway (Eaton EAS Products) 
  •        Battery Technology Considerations & Monitoring
  •        Distributed Generation Options
  •        MicroGrid Feasibility Study & Implementation
  •        Government / State Initiatives

Pre-register now!  The restaurant is not flexible to allowing casual walk-ins that have not pre-registered.

Biography:

Gabriel J. Paoletti, P.E. received a B.S.E.E degree from Drexel University, Philadelphia, Pa. in 1976 and an MBA from Rutgers University, Camden, NJ in 2009.  He received the IEEE Engineer of the Year Award for 2009 (Northern New Jersey Chapter) for new product and service innovation which improved the efficient distribution of electrical power. 

Mr. Paoletti has over thirty-seven (37) years of engineering service experience with Westinghouse, ABB and Eaton Electrical (Cutler-Hammer) Engineering Service.  His experience includes electrical power distribution design, installation, commissioning, upgrading, modernizations, predictive and preventive maintenance, and failure analysis.  Mr. Paoletti is currently involved with Smart Grids and Microgrid applications linked to current and oncoming market trends.  He is also a patent participant for a switchgear partial discharge sensor and he received Patent # 7,646,308 for “System for Monitoring Electrical Equipment and Providing Predictive Diagnostics”, January 12, 2010.

Mr. Paoletti is a Senior Member of IEEE and a Registered Professional Engineer in the States of Pennsylvania and Delaware.   Mr. Paoletti has had technical papers published in the IEEE-IAS concerning microprocessor-based protective relays (1990), vacuum modernization of MV circuit breakers (1997), partial discharge technology related to MV motors and MV switchgear (2001 & 2004), condition-based maintenance of MV switchgear (2002) failure indicators of electrical equipment (2005) and safety and environmental evaluation of insulating materials in MV (2009) and Past, Present and Future Maintenance Practices (2011). Mr. Paoletti is currently Division Applications Engineering Manager for the Eaton Engineering Services and Systems Division. He also was a contributing author to the IEEE-Buff Book regarding topics on maintenance, testing and calibration (2002).
