– Arturas Floria, Substation Engineer at Snohomish PUD, was an awesome host giving a great introduction at SnoPUD’s main office prior to the tour. Slides from that talk are available here.
– Brad Kell, Director of Deployment & Field Services for UET, provided an excellent talk detailing the flow batteries at the substation.
– Joe Kuzmick, Manager of Engineering Operations at Doosan GridTech, gave us all a better understanding of battery control systems.
