The IEEE Power & Energy Society Student Branch Chapter at The University of Manchester invites you to its 2nd Distinguished Lecture Program (DLP) of the year themed “The Power of Data Analytics in Electric Utilities – An Industry Perspective” by Dr. Siri Varadan, Global Director of Strategic Solutions for Asset Management at Hitachi ABB Power Grids.
This session focusses on the use of field data, obtained from sensors monitoring field assets. The key question, “what to do with this data?” is the main topic. Use cases are presented demonstrating how data analytics can be used for determining asset health, criticality and remedial actions.
The session also deals with the topic of decision making based on data driven facts. This includes diagnostics (what to do now?) based on current and past data, and prognostics (what to do in the future?) based on AI/ML techniques.
