Instrumentation, Controls & Automation Interest Group Meeting

Instrumentation, Controls & Automation Interest Group Meeting 
June 6-7, 2012

The Department of Energy National Energy Technology Laboratory Crosscutting Research program and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) together hosted the Instrumentation, Controls, and Automation Interest Group Meeting to address sensors and controls research for the power industry. This meeting was held in conjunction with the 2012 ISA POWID Conference on June 6-7, 2012. The goal was to share ongoing research activities, exchange ideas and collect information from power industry to identify potential future topics that can be used in new solicitation. Several topics were covered to stimulate discussion in areas that included wireless technologies, fiber optic sensors, model based control, cyber security and advances in sensors. The interactive discussions were captured, and can be accessed in the meeting notes.
