The Transactive Energy Modeling and Simulation Challenge for the Smart Grid ("TE Challenge") brings researchers and companies with simulation tools together with utilities, product developers, and other grid stakeholders to create and demonstrate modeling and simulation platforms while applying TE approaches to real grid problems. The products of the challenge will help the industry better understand the potential for TE and create a path for real-world trial implementations. This webinar will provide an overview of the TE Challenge, draft plans of some industry representatives for participation, and how you can get involved and benefit from the Challenge.


Smart Grid Stability with Broadcast Communications

Developed under the Home to Grid (H2G) Domain Expert Working Group (DEWG), this paper expands upon the SGIP paper "Broadcast-based H2G Communication Solutions" published in 2014 to address the issue of system stability arising from broadcasting prices to devices.  The concept of stability is based on system control theory, which is summarized.  Various control strategies are presented to enable optimization of the intended operational goals while ensuring system stability.



Constituent Participation & Engagement

Key constituencies contribute to SGIP in a variety of valuable ways as members serving on policy-making committees; writing technical papers and other publications; and acting as liaisons to peer organizations.
