Tutorial 1: “Microgrid as a Real-time Control System: An Engineers Guide to Connectivity and Cybersecurity”   
Presented by: Hossein Ghassempour Aghamolki & Anthony Ciccozzi (both of Eaton Electrical Engineering Services & Systems) 
Email:  HosseinGhassempouraghamolki@eaton.com; AnthonyCiccozzi@eaton.com

Duration:  1.5 hours  
Abstract: Microgrids often need to connect to various protection system components, Distributed Energy Resource (DER) assets, loads and remote Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems, and cloud applications.  Successful integration of a safe, secure, and maintainable Microgrid requires an understanding of several concepts related to real-time control system connectivity and cybersecurity. In this session, concepts, recommendations, drawn from field experience and lessons learned, and tutorials are presented. Topics include connectivity and cybersecurity concepts in IEEE 1547 and IEEE 2030.5, power system protection for Microgrids, timing and latency, DER integration, (practical) cybersecurity hardening concepts, recommendations for tools, tips, and tutorials for network monitoring.

Tutorial 2: Innovative Approaches to Reliability Modeling & Prediction in Automotive Industry”
Presented by: Vasiliy Krivtsov (Ford Motor Company)

Email: vkrivtso@ford.com

Duration: 1 hour       
Abstract: Classical reliability methods (such as Weibull Analysis, Accelerated Life Testing, Degradation Modelling, etc.) undoubtedly remain relevant in the Automotive Industry.  However, with the emergence of modern technologies (connected vehicles, big data, machine learning, etc.) some innovative methods of reliability data analysis have emerged too.  The tutorial will cover modern reliability techniques that include but are not limited to: reliability models with time-dependent predictors, deep survival models, condition-based reliability maintenance, etc.  The discussion will be illustrated by numerous use cases from the author’s corporate and consulting experience.
