Reproducible Power System Planning at Smart Wires
Tom Nudell is the Manager of Product and Solution Analytics at Smart Wires. He holds a BA in Physics (magna cum laude) from Kalamazoo College and MS and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from North Carolina State University. He also completed an 18 month postdoctoral research appointment at MIT in the Active-Adaptive Control Lab. Tom's research has ranged from wide-area monitoring and control of power systems to resilient interconnected infrastructure and transactive control of energy system. At Smart Wires, he leads a team of software engineers and transmission planning engineers who are responsible for incorporating Smart Wires field devices into traditional transmission planning methods: including developing device models, optimal sizing, placement and dispatching algorithms, and running planning studies for customers. Tom is a member of the IEEE, CIGRE, and Phi Beta Kappa. His professional goals include realizing the rapid and widespread integration of renewable and energy efficient resources in the electric power grid. RSVPs will not open until 2 weeks before the event.

What we're about

We're a group interested in the application of Data Science to issues of sustainability, asking questions such as:

what data feeds can improve supply chain sustainability?

how can fault detectors be applied to agricultural water conservation?

in what ways can building energy efficiency be automated?

how can cell-phone data inform transport planning?

Amongst our membership are product managers, investors, engineers, founders and, of course, data scientists. We book speakers who can describe both the broad challenges and the technical details. We meet the first week of every month.

Where permitted by our speakers, the slides from past talks are provided at (

This group was founded in 2013 by Joe Kwiatkowski (EcoFactor) and Adam Rein (Mission Point Capital) to fill a gap in the Silicon Valley meetup scene.
