Announcement attached below.
The 3/19/2013 On Demand Archive is stored here <
> and is about an hour long.
Sort of basic stuff at the front (targeted at power engineers), then gets
into some power system specific examples.

> Parallel computing offers a significant advance in computing power
> needed in the increasingly computationally-intensive environment of
> power system operations. This talk introduces parallel computing,
> and its need and applications in various industries including the
> electric power industry. The requirements for adopting parallel
> computing will be discussed along with alternative approaches for
> high performance computing. Practical challenges faced in
> transitioning from legacy systems to parallel computing
> architectures will be identified. The presentation includes an
> overview of different parallel computing architectures and
> programming models, along with key design aspects of parallel
> programming important to its adoption, such as computer load
> balancing, communication, synchronization, and task granularity. It
> also explores various libraries, state-of-the-art parallel
> programming languages for large-scale code development and
> productivity over a few to tens of thousands of processors.
> An example of use of parallel computing in power system analysis is
> given. Results are reported for use of a parallel power system
> dynamic simulator for dynamic contingency analysis of thousands of
> contingencies in a large test system. Results are presented for
> different computing architectures, and for different programming
> models and programming languages. This demonstration of parallel
> computing takes into account crucial design considerations such as
> computing load balancing and communication overhead.
> Biography: Siddhartha Kumar Khaitan is a Post Doctoral Research
> Associate in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
> at Iowa State University. His research interests are in high
> performance computing applications for power systems, modeling and
> simulation, renewable energy integration, and development of
> detailed storage (i.e., CAES, hydrogen) models. He has authored a
> number of journal publications and edited two books.
> Registration for Webinar Participation: None required. There is no
> charge for participating!
> Participation by Webinar: There are several options for participating.
> · Recommended option: We will be using the Adobe Connect 9
> webinar platform. You will be able to watch the presentation slides
> on your computer from the designated site
> [asu.adobeconnect.com] and listen to the
> webinar through your computer?s speakers or headphones. Click here
> [pserc.wisc.edu] for the connection details and instructions for
> testing your connection. If you cannot hear the presenter, check to
> make sure your speaker is not muted in Adobe Connect. It may also be
> possible to use the app ?Adobe Connect? Mobile? to participate via
> smart phone or tablet.
> · You can also listen to the audio over the public phone
> bridge at 712-432-0800 (passcode: 937250#). Be sure to mute your
> phone (press *6) so sounds in your room do not go out to the phone
> bridge with other listeners. Should you not be able to connect to
> the webinar, you can also download the slides from the PSERC website
> and listen to the audio over the phone.
> · You can watch the archived webinar at a different time by
> clicking here[mediasite.engr.wisc.edu] and then on the link for this
> webinar. Note: This is also another way to watch the webinar in
> Asking Questions During the Webinar: You are invited to ask
> questions or make comments during the webinar using the Adobe
> Connect webconferencing platform. Just enter your question into the Q&A
> Professional Development Hour Certification: PDH certification is
> available for PSERC members (only). Send an email requesting PDH
> certification to pserc at asu.edu with the subject ?PDH?. Include the
> name and title of each participant.
> Assistance: If you have any questions, please call 480-965-1643 or email
