As part of the UNIFI Consortium (UNiversal Interoperability for grid-Forming Inverters, more information here), and as part of Berkeley EECS290 (21st Century Power System Dynamics), we are pleased to announce the Fall 2021 UNIFI Seminar Series.
All talks will be by zoom. You must register ahead of time here. (Note this is a University of Minnesota link; Sairaj Dhople kindly gave us that so that we can allow unauthorized users to join. This is a team effort!)
We will post videos of the talks after they happen, accessible by clicking on the links after the titles. In some cases we’re also able to make the slides available.
All talks will be Mondays 4-5 Eastern / 3-4 Central / 2-3 Mountain / 1-2 Pacific.
