Have you ever considered how the U.S national electric grid is operated and maintained? Think of any Hollywood movie with a control center and you’re not far off.
ASU’s partners at Incremental Systems (IncSys) have spent the last 25 years developing cutting-edge, realistic, and interactive training programs for electrical grid operation using real-time simulation and analysis. Their veteran-focused program entitled Power4Vets has been delivered to 183 people in the past few years, of which 20 have been at ASU. The 90-hour training program is packed with information on power flow simulations, energy markets, contingency analysis, balancing and more — everything you need to know to manage the grid.
Encourage your veteran students interested in energy careers to attend.
