• The purpose of Computer and Smart Grid Special Technical Community is to stimulate investments in computing technologies (including research and development, standards, and education) that will enable achievement of Smart Grid visions and improve the performance and capability of electric power systems (i.e., more efficient, faster, reliable, resilient, etc.).
  • The Computer and Smart Grid STC provides networking and professional service opportunities to all people interested in advancing the concept of Smart Grid.

About the Officers

STC Chair

David Cartes leads the Controls and Automation Research and Development Program and is the immediate past Associate Director of FSU’s Center for Advanced Power Systems.  As a recognized expert and leader in the control and automation of power systems Dr. Cartes chairs both the IEEE Standard P2030.4 - Guide for Control and Automation Installations Applied to the Electric Power Infrastructure, and the IEEE Standard 45.2 - Recommended Practice for Electric Installations on Shipboard, Automation and Controls. These international standards provide guidance for land-based and marine application of open architecture control and automation that enables the introduction of common functions across multiple systems and platforms in a way that achieves high levels of modularity, extensibility, portability and scalability.  He is a member of the Computer Society’s Smart Grid Vision Project Executive Committee. His personal research interests include decentralized control of nonlinear and complex systems to include land and marine energy systems. Dave has  a keen interest in Asian Smart Grid developments and hopes to professionally relocate to Asia before he retires.
