Tarmigan, I have a friend who really MUST work at Tesla. He was a staff eng at Sun, National Semi, Cobalt, etc.
He is a master in solar power generation monitoring (designs custom embedded BACNET boxes, develops standards based protocols for energy monitoring, fosters the creation of industry working groups around said protocols/ideas, etc) among other things wrote the first book on SAMBA... blah blah blah.
This guy will solve (if he hasnt already) this for you:
>* Design and evaluation of algorithms for energy and power markets
>* Designing a robust system to control distributed resources
YOU NEED TO HIRE THIS GUY.
How can I connect you both?
Please reply to my email addy in my profile.
As a finders fee, I humbly ask to escort Elon Musk's ashes to Mars.
