Roger N. Anderson
ConEdison Senior Scholar
Center for Computational Learning Systems, Columbia University
Dr. Anderson will discuss how our evolving understanding of the root causes of electric grid failures has helped lower the electric component failure rates of the distribution grid in New York City by 30 to 40 percent. Additional cost savings from the implementation of “virtual” systems and automated switching are delaying or eliminating the need to add more copper to the physical grid.
