Surviving Grid Instability: An Exercise in “How To”
December 14, 2014 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
Our guest speaker for November is K.A. “Bud” Leavell. Bud is Regional Manager for Piller USA and will be speaking to the DEC about grid instability.
Originally trained in Electronics Engineering, Bud enjoyed a successful career in the Electronics, Computer and Telecommunications Industries serving in such capacities as Systems Engineer, Software Engineer, Applications Engineer, and in various executive sales positions.
In 2003, Bud made a career transition to the mechanical field as Sales and Service Manager for a large mechanical contractor, then moved to the position of Territory Manager for Carrier North Texas.
From April of 2008 until May of 2013, as a Sales Engineer for Yazaki Energy Systems Inc., Bud was heavily involved in the application of thermally driven chillers to the renewable energy market and has developed expertise in the nuances of applying non-traditional energy sources to these chillers. This includes developing expertise in the application of Combined Cooling, Heat and Power.
Since May of 2013, Bud has been combining what he learned from the CCHP applications with his previous knowledge of electronics and electrical power systems to expanding the practical scope of Co-Generation plants into more heavily industrial applications with large step loads.
