ES Cornwall Memorial Scholarship Seminar


The ES Cornwall Memorial Scholarship was established in 1956 as a memorial to Edward Satchwell Cornwall, general manager and director of the Southern Electric Authority of Queensland. Awarded by The University of Queensland, the scholarship enables graduates to gain experience abroad in the electricity industry and is open to engineering graduates from all Queensland Universities. Having recently returned to Australia, two recent scholarship holders, Alice Fleetwood and Mitchell Tap, will be sharing their experiences from their time spent working abroad.Mitchell’s scholarship focused on “Maintaining Stability in an Electricity Network with a High Penetration of Distributed Energy and Inverter-Based Resources.” From his time at KEMA Labs, he will discuss learnings relating to testing inverter-based resources including battery chargers, solar inverters and battery systems for islanded applications using techniques such as real-time simulation and hardware-in-the-loop testing. Mitchell will then share insights from his role in the Product Operability team at National Grid ESO where his work related to inertia, stability markets and grid-forming inverters connected to the national grid. This included modelling in PSCAD and PowerFactory to understand how inertia varies across different regions of the UK.Alice undertook placements with TenneT TSO in the Netherlands and SP Energy Networks in the UK as part of her scholarship program. Within the Strategy & Partnerships – Digital & Flexibility team at TenneT, Alice worked on feasibility projects for satellite monitoring and an energy market data analysis platform. At SP Energy Networks, Alice was part of the Asset Management & Investment team within the Network Planning & Development department and undertook a 3D digital network performance model proof-of-concept project.[]Co-sponsored by: Power, Energy, and Control (PEC) Discipline of the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of QueenslandVirtual:
