Ampirical's Power-Tech Podcast is all about bringing technology to the power industry. Our goal is to educate utility personnel on the most popular trends, bring them actionable strategies from industry thought leaders, and help them make sure their utility is prepared for the future.
Economic and Reliability Impact of Power Quality
Power quality is one of the most challenging and exciting parts of modern utility practice. It is also one of the most misunderstood. Often quality and reliability are confused as the same thing. Today we will be discussing, how power quality is defined from a standards perspective and the implications of grid modernization on the quality of the power system.
Optimizing Load Tap Changer and Voltage Regulator Control in Distribution to Stabilize Voltage with DER Penetration
The impact of distributed energy resources (DER), specifically for solar and wind power, continues to be challenging for many utilities with increased DER penetration. In this podcast, we discuss “smart control” methodologies that help mitigate these issues—without costly communication systems—while fostering volt/VAR optimization, minimizing voltage constrained hosting barriers, and as a signal for controlling VAR and watt output.
Adopting AutoCAD Electrical for Substation P&C Design
Strategic planning is a phase that often does not get the attention it deserves when it comes to building and standardizing new design tools for the utility industry. In this episode, we discuss how important the planning phase is for this transition, the conversations that should be had, and the considerations that should be made before any real work begins.
Power Grid Supply Chain Security: Past, Present, and Future
This episode highlights cybersecurity and supply chain risk management. Currently, supply chain is being driven by the regulatory standard NERC CIP-013 and the new executive order. This episode provides guidance and considerations when developing a program to address supply chain security.
Is FUD (Fear, Uncertainty & Doubt) Holding You Back From Adopting the Cloud?
This episode features a round-table discussion regarding FUD – Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt - and touches on topics that may be holding entities back from adopting the Cloud.
Security, Compliance, and the Cloud: Where We Are Today
This episode is the third in our continuing series regarding cloud hosted, software as a service solutions, and security considerations. Our first podcast was focused on cloud based solutions and security for power systems. In the second podcast, we discussed cloud data security (the where, who, and how). In this episode, we will take a deeper dive into where we are today with security, compliance, and the cloud.
