Reliability and the Move to Resiliency
Aug. 25, 2016
As the industry debates the definition of reliability versus resiliency, the American Public Power Association (APPA) has taken a unique approach to making sure utilities keep an eye on what customers care about most —keeping the lights on. This webinar will discuss how reliability data can be collected on a national level and used to improve restoration efficiency and bring improved resiliency to the causes of utility outages.
Michael J. Hyland leads the department covering the majority of engineering issues faced by public power, including research and development; engineering and operations; distributed resources; safety; smart grid; physical and cybersecurity; and all others items that tend to be listed under operations of an electric utility. His background includes a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering from Drexel University, and he’s a registered professional engineer. Mike is the current chair of the IEEE National Electric Safety Code and has served on a variety of committees, including NERC’s Planning/Engineering Committee.
