The SMAGRINET Webinar series is wrapping up with a look into further capacities building to face emerging operational problems - this time we will explore the connection planning in smart grids.
Kai Strunz, from Technische Universität Berlin | TUB open the exciting topic of "Virtual Power Plants" and Boštjan Blažič, from University of Ljubljana | UL will talk about "Advanced Voltage Control in Distribution Networks".
We will introduce you to the SMAGRINET module that combines essential subjects on modern and smart electrical system operation and control. Including the general characteristics of a distributed network with distributed renewable generation, virtual power plants and optimization problems.
More information about the speakers:
Kai Strunz received the Dipl.-Ing. and Dr.-Ing. (summa cum laude) degrees from Saarland University, Saarbrücken, Germany, in 1996 and 2001, respectively. From 1995 to 1997, he pursued research at Brunel University in London. From 1997 to 2002, he worked at the Division Recherche et Développement of Electricité de France in the Paris area. From 2002 to 2007, he was an Assistant Professor of electrical engineering with the University of Washington in Seattle. Since September 2007, he has been Professor with the Department of Sustainable Electric Networks and Sources of Energy, Technische Universität Berlin. He is Guest Professor of the Chinese Academy of Science, Beijing.
Dr. Strunz is the Secretary of the IEEE Power and Energy Society (PES) Committee on Energy Development and Power Generation, Chair of the Subcommittee on Distributed Energy Resources, and Vice Chair of the Working Group on Dynamic Performance and Modeling of HVDC Systems and Power Electronics for Transmission Systems. In 2012, Dr. Strunz was the General and Technical Program Chair of the IEEE PES Innovative Smart Grid Technologies (ISGT) Europe 2012 in Berlin. He has received the IEEE PES Prize Paper Award 2015 and the IEEE Journal of Emerging and Selected Topics.
Boštjan Blažič is a Professor at University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and a R&D specialist in the field of smart grids and quality of power. Alongside his research work he also gives lectures about the topics from his area of expertise. His research work is focused on three main areas: Intelligent power systems (smart grids) and integration of renewable energy sources; Mathematical analysis and control of power converters (active filters, FACTS devices); and Power quality (sources and propagation of disturbances, mitigation of power quality problems). His work group is highly tied with the industry, including Slovenian transmission and distribution system operators, large industrial consumers (e.g. steelworks) and manufacturers of secondary equipment (ICT, network automatization and measurements). They also participate within EU funded projects (Framework Programmes, Alpine-Space Programme). He is also involved in various EC initiatives, e.g. the ETP Smart Grids, Smart cities Industrial Initiative and Smart Grids Task Force.
