Students within Computer Engineering and Systems Group and elsewhere can be a part of the Texas A&M University Smart Grid Journal Club this semester. Dr. Kumar sponsors the club with the intent to bring an interdisciplinary group of students together to present and discuss papers. The group focuses on the field of energy and power, which can involve the Power Group, Computer Engineering Group, Communication Group, and the Control Group.
Students involved in this club will be able to get a sense of how to interact and learn within multi-disciplinary teams. In addition to this, students will also be able to work on their presentation skills. Being a part of the Smart Grid Journal Club can introduce those participating to fields of research outside their own and expand critical thinking skills.
This semester is well underway with many interesting subjects being presented weekly. Some of the presentations already given include: “Evaluation of Power System Flexibility”, and “The Role of Out-of-Market Corrections in Day-Ahead Scheduling.” However, there are still several weeks left in the semester if anyone wants to get involved immediately. Links to presentations can be found on the website mentioned below.
The club meets every Wednesday from 12:30 – 1:30 P.M. Two students may present a selected paper each week. To find out more information about the schedule or the club, go to: https://sites.google.com/site/tamusmartgridjournalclub/about
