April 2021 Software Carpentry iserna Fri, 02/19/2021 - 01:54

Software Carpentry aims to help researchers get their work done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic research computing skills. This hands-on workshop will cover basic concepts and tools, including program design, version control, data management, and task automation. Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems.

Exploiting Symmetry in Large-Scale Optimization and Control iserna Tue, 01/26/2021 - 03:16

This talk will present theoretical and algorithmic results on exploiting symmetry to reduce the computational complexity large-scale control and optimization problems. First, we will show how symmetry can be used to reduce the memory complexity of explicit solutions of optimization problems. Second, we will show how symmetry can be used to reduce the memory and computational complexity of an alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM) optimization algorithm.

SMART Networking iserna Thu, 01/21/2021 - 07:55

Interact with SMART Grid colleagues, make new connections, answer trivia questions, and win prizes!

Join us for SMART Networking where you can catch up and talk shop with SMART Grid students, faculty, and researchers in a fun and interactive Zoom call. Opportunities over the hour include small group networking, a SMART Grid related trivia contest, and chance to win prizes.

This event is BYOD- Bring Your Own Device and Drinks. Hope to see you there!

Github Training Webinar

An increasing number of researchers and research teams are using distributed version control systems like Git to enable efficient collaboration around and sharing of analytic code, software tools, and documentation. Whether you are developing analysis code, developing a manuscript in LaTeX, building a web interface for your project, or writing your dissertation you can use Git to organize and document your development process and systematically integrate and test the contributions by your team.

2020 NMRS Virtual Conference SMART Grid Center Seminar

The NM SMART Grid Center supports interdisciplinary research on next-generation electric power production and delivery through creation of a Sustainable, Modular, Adaptive, Resilient, and Transactive (SMART) electric grid. During this seminar, four graduate students will present their research on a range of topics.

Carrots, Sticks and Other "Smart" Tricks in Making Energy Consumption Smarter

Capturing human behavior in engineering models is challenging, in part because humans themselves are challenging. This talk will discuss a series of pilot experiments run with utilities in Vermont, the goals of which were to understand how investments in a smarter grid—primarily advanced metering and distribution systems—could help residential customers conserve energy during peak demand periods.

New Mexico’s Climate Strategy and Electricity Sector Implications

Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham issued Executive Order 2019-003 on climate change in January 2019. This order established the New Mexico Interagency Climate Change Task Force and included several policy directives for state agencies to implement. This presentation will give an overview of the 2019 New Mexico Climate Strategy report produced in response to EO 2019-003. We will also cover legislative and regulatory updates from the past few months and provide additional depth and detail on strategy and planned action in the electricity sector.

STEM Advancement Program (STEMAP): Student Presentations & Virual Poster Session

Please join us for the 2020 STEMAP student presentations and virtual poster session!

STEMAP engages students from NM’s regional universities, community colleges, and tribal colleges in NM SMART Grid Center research and training. Students spend 8-weeks working under the direction of faculty mentors at NMSU, NMT, and UNM. The NM SMART Grid Center, an interdisciplinary National Science Foundation (NSF) project, is pursuing research and workforce training for next-generation electric power production and delivery.
