Impact of COVID-19 Related Shutdowns on Utility-Scale Electric Demand and Forecasting: An Indian Metropolitan Area Case Study

Posted by Dr. Mostafa Farrokhabadi on Jun 23, 2020 1:53:51 PM

The ongoing COVID-19 related shutdowns has had a profound impact on the electric demand profiles worldwide, as governments put strict mitigation and/or suppression measures in place. The global electrical demand has plummeted around the planet in the last few weeks, with countries such as Spain and Italy experiencing more than 20% decrease in their usual electric consumption. In view of such massive electric demand changes, electricity network operators are facing unprecedented challenges in scheduling energy resources, as short-term energy forecasting systems struggle to provide an accurate demand prediction.

Dissipative regulation - new approaches to understanding the regulatory mechanisms in the human body

Posted by CME Swiss on Jun 23, 2020 10:37:56 AM
The functioning of a living body, maintaining the dynamic stability of its homeostasis, is provided by regulatory systems. Traditionally, such systems include the nervous and humoral systems of regulation. The third regulatory system of the body, which provides communication in the body, distance interactions according to the "informational" principle, is not considered.
For this reason, the understanding of the law of nature – “substance-energy-information”, uniting the foundations of any matter, is very limited in biology. Therefore, the rules and postulates of Synergetics, as a science of the self-organization of matter, in the understanding of modern scientists are far from real processes occurring in matter "here and now." This article
provides a summary of the basic rules and principles of the interaction of Matter, Energy and Information, which is the basis of the third regulation mechanism in the human body.

How Technology Has Inspired Intelligent Healthcare

Posted by Phee Waterfield on Jun 5, 2020 12:16:05 PM
As a journalist, I find myself in a strange time — I should be attending conferences in places across the world as this is normally event season. However, due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, some of the biggest events have been cancelled.
 
However, I had the opportunity to attend a conference online — Intelligent Health Inspired. Unlike the usual webinars I’ve been on, this was set-up like a cross between the buzz of a cinematic ted talk with the professionalism of a business conference, just without the crowds and queues. Something I could get used to.
