PES Webinar - New Approaches for the Control of Future Low Voltage Distribution Networks - October 2014

IEEE Power & Energy Society Webinar Series

New Approaches for the Control of Future Low Voltage Distribution Networks

October 28, 2014 11:00 a.m eastern

Presented by Dr. Luis (Nando) Ochoa
The University of Manchester

Information and Registration: http://www.ieee-pes.org/webinar-low-voltage-distribution-networks-oct-2014

This Webinar:

The increasing and future adoption of small-to-medium scale low carbon technologies such as wind power, photovoltaic systems, electric vehicles and electric heat pumps is and will pose significant technical and economic challenges on distribution networks. Low voltage distribution networks have been designed to have no controllability and hence are largely unmonitored. However, it is likely that they will become one of the first bottlenecks towards the decarbonisation of our power systems.

This presentation will first introduce the potential problems or impacts of different penetrations of low carbon technologies on LV networks using a Monte Carlo approach to cater for the corresponding uncertainties involved. It will then present and discuss the benefits and drawbacks of some of the potential solutions that might allow higher penetrations without the need of traditional reinforcements. The work is based on different industrial projects hence it will provide insights on real UK LV networks as well as the trialed technologies.

Those involved in electrical distribution, including engineers, consultants, researchers, and electricity distribution companies will gain insights from this webinar.

IEEE PES Technical Webinar Series: How the Cloud Can Transform the Energy Business: the Future Internet Approach

 

IEEE Power & Energy Society Technical Webinar Series

How the Cloud Can Transform the Energy Business: the Future Internet Approach

March 17, 2015  11:00 am eastern

Presented by Antonello Monti, RWTH Aachen University

Info and registration details: http://www.ieee-pes.org/webinar-cloud-transform-energy-biz-march-2015

This Webinar: The changes in the energy arena call for more and more ICT in the operation and infrastructure of modern utilities. In particular, the idea of a "customer-centric" grid is completely transforming the relation between energy providers and end-users based on the possibillity of bi-directional data exchange.

While most research has targeted specific technical issues of the so called "Smart Grid," very little attention has been paid to the definition of a comprehensive, flexible, scalable and reusable ICT platform to deliver innovative energy services. However, this platform concept is a pre-requisite for a real interoperability. 

This webinar will present some recent key developments in the so-called Future Internet area, supporting innovative approaches to energy service deployment. Seven large field trials across Europe, involving some of the most important utilities, will be presented to demonstrate that such a platform is becoming a reality.

The goal of the presentation is to share these practical experiences and to document the path towards the creation of an energy-focused standardized software platform as a practical enabler of future energy services.

PES Webinar - Evaluation of the Deployment Potential of Smart Grids Solutions to Enhance the Hosting Capacity of Distribution Networks Through Statistical Methods

IEEE Power & Energy Society Technical Webinar Series

Evaluation of the Deployment Potential of Smart Grids Solutions to Enhance the Hosting Capacity of Distribution Networks Through Statistical Methods

30 August 2016 • 11:00 am Eastern

Presented by Benoît Bletterie, Senior Research Engineer, AIT Austrian Institute of Technology

REGISTER HERE

This Webinar:

The installed capacity of distributed energy resources (DER) has massively increased in the last 15 years. The general trend is expected to remain and the share of distributed energy resources will further grow in the next years. With this massive development, the hosting capacity of distribution networks has been exhausted in some regions.

In order to efficiently integrate this generation into distribution networks, alternative solutions (smart grid solutions) to network reinforcement have been proposed in the last years. In particular, many R&D efforts have been devoted to the development of novel voltage control concepts and several concepts have been successfully tested under real conditions in various demonstrators. However their real potential for large scale deployment has not been fully studied so far.

This webinar will address the question of how to evaluate the actual replicability potential of smart grid solutions by simulation techniques. To estimate the hosting capacity, an approach based on Monte Carlo simulations has been developed and used on a large set of network data (MV and LV) from eight European distribution network operators. This webinar will showcase the use of advanced simulations to quantify the expected hosting capacity increase with smart grids solutions on the basis of the work done in the EU project IGREENGrid.

PES Webinar - Trends in Microgrid Control

IEEE Power & Energy Society Technical Webinar Series

Trends in Microgrid Control

27 September 2016 • 2:00 pm Eastern

Presented by Claudio Canizares, Professor, ECE Department of the University of Waterloo

REGISTER HERE

This Webinar:

An overview, definitions, and classification of the main control issues and trends in microgrids are presented in this talk, based on the survey carried out by the Power System Dynamic Performance (PSDP) Committee Task Force in Microgrid Control. In this context, the main characteristics and challenges of secondary controls, i.e. Energy Management Systems (EMS), for microgrids are discussed, together with actual EMS architectures associated with deterministic, probabilistic, robust and interval methodologies developed at the University of Waterloo, some of which are being implemented in practice. Thus, an EMS consisting on a simplified Unit Commitment (UC) problem and a detailed dispatch Optimal Power Flow (OPF) problem, in decoupled and integrated architectures, both based on model predictive control and receding horizon techniques, are presented. Stochastic programming and a robust optimization implementations of the UC problem, to better deal with uncertainty of particularly wind and solar power sources, are also discussed, together with an interval approach based on Affine Arithmetic (AA) to model and solve uncertain OPF microgrid problems. The practical feasibility and benefits of the proposed EMS approaches are demonstrated and compared based on results obtained from tests carried out on a realistic benchmark microgrid.
