Marija IlicMarija D. Ilić, professor of electrical and computer engineering and engineering and public policy at Carnegie Mellon University, will be on campus next week to give a talk titled “Dynamic Monitoring and Decision Systems for Sustainable Electric Energy Service.”

The talk will focus on the premise that a physical electric power grid and its cyber system (together forming a “smart grid”) can play a key role in matching the characteristics of system users to the objectives of the overall electric energy system. Designing such a system is not easily executed, however, because user objectives often conflict with the objectives of the overall system (reliability, efficiency, security). Thus, a Dynamic Monitoring and Decision System (DyMonDS) is required to manage these characteristics by integrating feedback control, adapting, learning and making data-driven decisions. In her talk, Ilić will present the framework for a DyMonDS system.

Presented by the Great Lakes Energy Institute, the event will take place Monday, Feb. 11, in Nord Hall 310 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Lunch will be served. For more information and registration, visit
