Workshop 401
 Micro/Nanogrid Modelling Practicum
Schedule:  Pending
Time:  1-5 PM ET

4.0    Modelling Practicum – This session is designed to provide participants with practical work experience. It will reinforce the learning from the first three workshops of learning by doing. The workshop will involve actual use of modelling software where participants can transfer their knowledge to actual work and understanding of the tiered approach to microgrids.  Although not mandatory, it is highly recommended that lower level workshops be considered a prerequisite for this higher-level session.
