Identifying Architectural Modularity in the Smart Grid - Brad Rogers, Navigant

Identifying Architectural Modularity in the Smart Grid - Brad Rogers, Navigant About the Presentation One significant challenge facing a broader deployment of modern grid technologies is integrating with legacy systems while driving toward elegant, interoperable solutions in future grid integration efforts. This challenge is compounded by the de facto approach of customizing point-to-point integration solutions, resulting in an "accidental architecture" of the existing grid. The Design Structure Matrix methodology is applied to two publically available architecture models to demonstrate how this approach can help define smart grid architectures and to help identify architectural groupings that can lead tobetter modularization of smart grid systems and standardization efforts. The analysis concludes that initial smart grid architectural efforts can be improved upon by identifying areas of modularity and organizing around them. Full paper available here. About the Speaker Brad Rogers is a Managing Consultant in the Energy Practice in Navigant's Boulder, Colorado office. Brad's work at Navigant has encompassed grid modernization efforts including developing smart grid business cases for specific advanced meter investment decisions and regional deployment strategies, designing metric tracking systems for smart grid demonstration projects, recommending tailored approaches for developing grid interoperability standards, popularizing an approach that produces more modularized intelligent grid architectures, andstatistically evaluating the accuracy of deployed smart meters with sophisticated econometric methods. Before working at Navigant, Brad worked for Summit Blue Consulting, Spirit AeroSystems, Nuvera Fuel Cells, and the United States Peace Corps. Brad earned an M.B.A. and an M.S. in Engineering Systems with a concentration in Energy and Sustainability at MIT in the Leaders for Global Operations program. He received a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, summa cum laude, with a minor in BusinessEngineering Technology from Auburn University. About the Series The MIT System Design and Management Program Systems Thinking Webinar Series features research conducted by SDM faculty, alumni, students, and industry partners. The series is designed to disseminate information on how to employ systems thinking to address engineering, management, and socio-political components of complex challenges.
