Conference Keynote Speaker I

Prof. Bikash C. Pal
(IEEE FELLOW, PES Vice President)
Imperial College, UK

Speech Title: Stability Modelling and Analysis of Converter Driven Power System
Abstract: The number of power electronics converters connected to electrical networks has been growing exponentially as they are part of all new generation connected to the grid. While the rapid control and fast electronic switching available with this technology offer flexibility in network operation, the dynamic interactions between several of them threaten the operational stability of the transmission grid is a concern. It is required to develop a methodology for identifying the risks associated with the stability and control interaction before a new power electronic device (e.g. Windfarm, interconnector, STATCOM) is introduced to the network
The talk will focus on an analytical framework in impedance domain to quantify the interaction between the new plant and the rest of the network for setting additional grid connection study specifications which will include detail technical study to check and mitigate the risks associated with new power electronics interfaced generation. The framework developed is to support MMC technology, control delay, system strength and FRT capability of dynamic voltage support devices and windfarm through technical case study conducted at the research group of Bikash Pal at Imperial College London. Future research challenges and opportunities will be highlighted.

Conference Keynote Speaker III

Prof. Jun Xiao
(Vice Chair of the IEEE PES Distributed Energy Resources and Distribution System Planning Subcommittee,  'World's Top 2% Scientist')
Tianjin University, China

Speech Title: A General Acceleration Method for Solving Optimization Problems in Distribution Systems
Abstract: The optimization problems involving power flow equations or voltage constraints exist widely in electric power distribution systems. To enhance their computational efficiency, this paper proposed a general acceleration method to solve the distribution system optimization problems. Firstly, the capacity boundary and voltage boundary model of distribution systems are established. The relative position between the two boundaries reflects the strength of capacity and voltage constraints, based on which two critical feeder lengths (CFLs) are defined to quantify their strength. Secondly, simplification criteria and an acceleration method are proposed. Given a distribution system, if the distance from the end load/DG node to the slack bus is less than the corresponding CFL, we can conclude that the capacity constraints are stricter than the voltage constraints. Then, the distribution system can be simplified by adopting DC power flow model or disregarding the voltage constraints. After that, the reference value tables of CFL are presented. Finally, the effectiveness of the proposed method is verified by exemplifying the method in network reconfiguration and reactive power optimization problems. By implementing the proposed acceleration method, a significant reduction in computation time is achieved while ensuring accuracy. We have found the proposed method can be applied in most urban distribution systems and achieve good acceleration effect in solving optimization problems.

Conference Keynote Speaker IV

Prof. Jih-Sheng (Jason) Lai
(IEEE Life Fellow)
Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, USA

Speech Title: Pathway to Net Zero with High-Efficiency Power Conversion Technologies for Electrification
Abstract: As the transportation and electricity generation are mostly relying on fossil fuel today, electrification and associated grid modernization have been recognized as the key to eliminating fossil fuel dependence and paving the way for achieving the 2050 net-zero emission goal. The overarching strategy involves transitioning modes of transportation into electric power sources primarily fueled by renewable and clean energy. Center to this endeavor are essential technologies such as traction motor drives and battery chargers. In parallel, grid modernization hinges on advanced power conversion technologies such as high-voltage high-power inverters and solid-state transformers, all designed to seamlessly integrate renewable energy source. Due to the nature of load in transportation and many other sectors is mostly DC. Consequently, the renewable integration and power distribution system often involve with unnecessary power conversion stages or inefficient power conversion technologies, resulting in substantial energy losses. Given the global electricity capacity exceeding 11 TW, a mere one percent loss translates to a staggering 110-GW capacity. Every single percent of power conversion loss represents 1.1 GW, or at least one nuclear power plant. High efficiency power conversion is necessary to help reduce additional power plant constructions and to accelerate achieving the net-zero emission goal.
This presentation will introduce advanced high-efficiency power electronics technologies that leverage the latest generation power semiconductor devices to approach near-perfect power conversion. Real-world examples of ultrahigh-efficiency power conversion in EV inverters, fast chargers, PV inverters, and solid-state transformers will be showcased. Additionally, the associated grid modernization with the hybridized power distribution architecture that reduces the number of power conversion stages for overall system loss reduction will also be explored.
