Federal Grid Company is exploring the possibility of cooperation with Skoltech

DSC_8429-300x200The leaders of the Federal Grid Company “UES” visited Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology to learn about Skoltech and its abilities, and to discuss possible cooperation in the area of power-grids in the future.

The delegation was headed by Andrey Murov, Chairman of the Board of “FGC UES”, and included Pavel Korsunov and Natalia Ozhegina, Vice-Chairmen of the Board of “FGC UES”; Dmitry Klokov, director of external communications; Dmitry Tyron, Deputy General Director of Construction “ECMC UES”; Anton Sheverdov, director of the construction of facilities in the regions of the Center of “ECMC UES” and Sergei Ponomarev, chief expert at “FGC UES”. The guests got acquainted with the program of construction projects at the “Skolkovo” Innovation Center, and with the work of Skoltech and activity of its research centers.

7-300x200High officials of the Skolkovo foundationMaxim Sheifel, Acting Vice-President, Skolkovo City Manager; Vasily Belov, Senior Vice President of Innovation; Nikolai Grachev, vice president and executive director of the Cluster of energy-efficient technologies; Anton Yakovenko, General Director of “ODAS Skolkovo” – informed the guests about the progress of the construction of the energy infrastructure at the Skolkovo Innovation Center.

Alexey Ponomarev, Skoltech’s vice president of strategy and industrial cooperation; Prof. Alexander Ustinov, deputy director of the Research Center for Energy Systems and Ivan Sherstov, director of programs for cooperation with the industry, presented Skoltech’s program of activities and proposals for cooperation with “FGC UES” in the field of electric grid systems.

2-300x200The guests were shown a complex pilot of an overhead power lines monitoring system, as well as individual solutions in an integrated power line monitoring system: project of the unique “Kanatahod” (“tight rope” in Russian) copter-rope walker, able to land on a high-voltage lines wire, to monitor power lines and the icing monitoring system (MIG).

The guests from “FGC UES” got acquainted with the work of the energy systems laboratory, advanced structures, processes and materials. At the end of the visit, both sides agreed to continue to discuss promising areas of cooperation with Skoltech at the level of experts.

The Systems Engineering course invites you to a guest lecture titled Systems Engineering and Project Management – Crown Jewels of Competitive Enterprises by Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Heinz Stoewer, M.Sc.

When: October 16, 09:00

Where: Big classroom, 3rd floor, Hypercube Building, Skollkovo Innovation Center

Lecture Abstract:

Systems Engineering (SE) and Project Management (PM) are mandatory ingredients for managing complex projects. Both contribute to understanding and dealing with complexity in our high-tech world. They should be applied in a closely interrelated and complementary manner to be effective.

This lecture will shortly sketch the basics for both disciplines and demonstrate their interdependence along important technical and programmatic criteria. It will show successful SE and PM practices to prevent project failures.

The lecture will conclude with identifying major challenges for aspiring SEs and PMs and provide them with a few recipes for solving day-to-day system issues and leadership situations.

The Systems Engineering course invites to a guest Lecture on  Model based Systems Engineering (MBSE) as an indispensable Asset for a Digital Enterprise Strategy with  Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Heinz Stoewer.

 

When: October 17, 2014

Where: Hypercube, Skokovo Innovation Center

What:

Model-based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is the most important advent for System Engineering in past decades. It represents an important avenue for the future of the profession.

While it appears new and innovative it is in fact the consequence of progress made in computing, simulation, virtualization and modelling. It largely parallels developments in other engineering disciplines and beyond.

Looking at advances in the digital technologies and IT business one can observe new capabilities to deal with complexity and data management across most industries.

This lecture will introduce the basics of MBSE and sketch its applicability and status. It will highlight some of the trends towards what some call the 4th digital revolution and show that MBSE is part of this trend. It will outline a path forward and identify some of the objectives to be pursued to mature this new SE capability.
