Program   Smart Grid Training Workshop Program
The program will be taught in topical modules, with one instructor per module. Each topical module will last for one hour and thirty minutes. Lecture notes will be available to the attendees one week before the modules are taught in case they would like to go over before the program begins. They can post questions to the following email address info@smartgrid.ucla.edu before the start of the program and if we are able to address them during the program, we will try to do so.
