Event Details

About the Presentation:

Across the globe, electric power networks are undergoing transformation due to increasing demand to integrate myriad of technology along the electricity value chain. From centralized and decentralized renewable generation, to energy storage, to advanced technologies in the delivery system, to electric vehicles, and the Internet of Things, these are affecting the “abilities” of power networks and will shape the pathways and the ultimate outcome of this transformation. This transition is further complicated due to greater uncertainty in the planning and operations horizon of electric utilities.

In this seminar Dr. Lawrence Jones will discuss the recent advances in managing variability, flexibility and other abilities in power networks based on updated research and case studies from Australia, India, Europe, South Africa and USA found in the newly published 2nd edition of Renewable Energy Integration – Practical Management for Variability, Flexibility, and Uncertain in Power Grids - which he is editor.

In addition, Dr. Jones will outline challenges facing power networks and examine existing as well as emerging technology solutions. He will also identify areas where more research and university-industry partnerships are needed.
