On Demand - Digital Twins: Making the Electric Power Sector More Resilient and Reliable [an Energy Central PowerSession™]
- Oct 27, 2021 11:51 pm GMT
Digital twins are virtual representations of things in the real world, such as objects, systems, places, and processes. This PowerSession will examine them, their current and potential uses, and how they can help speed up a digital transformation that will enhance the resilience and reliability of power generation, transmission, and distribution.
Climate change is disrupting the electric power industry. Power plant and grid operators are scrambling to make their infrastructure more reliable and resilient in the face of the more frequent and intense weather events it fuels. Simultaneously, to reduce its carbon emissions, the industry is replacing fossil-fuel plants with renewable generation, batteries, and other distributed energy resources that pose their own resilience and reliability challenges. Digital twins can help on both counts. Join our panel as they discuss how the computer-based representations can be used to digitally transform the electric power sector to better enable it to everything from keeping equipment running optimally to determining the best grid configurations to accommodate the growth of DERs.
