CSE Speaker Series – Dr. Abe Ellis

On Friday, April 28, 2017, Dr. Abe Ellis from Sandia National Labs will discuss Large-scale PV Deployment: Motivation and Challenges in Cramer 221 at 11:00 am.


Abstract: PV system deployment continues to increase at a fast pace. This trend is expected to continue into the future. However, the characteristics of PV technology make it more difficult for utilities to plan and operate the power system. The industry is racing to update technologies, standards, procedures and tools to ensure that power system performance and reliability are maintained and even enhanced as conventional generation continues to be displaced by solar and other renewable resources.  This presentation will discuss PV deployment status and trends, reasoning for a solar energy future, expected technical challenges, and promising technical solutions.
