Engineering Perspective to Graduates to Higher Engineering roles in Industry including Academic Research and Teaching

"Engineering Perspective to Graduates to Higher Engineering roles in Industry including Academic Research and Teaching'' where I will discuss and provide key elements of an engineering graduate to this day what has been achieved, successful and some of the downfalls in Academic Research and Teach, Manager in R&D, Design, Proof-of-Concept, Production, Management and Product Delivery/Advertising, Customer Survey, Customer Service, Engineering Service, etc. This showcases the experience and expertise that you will acquire in the years of work. What are the benefits of being an Academic or Industry contribution? Change of roles of an engineer during various workplaces and who is suited to be an Academic including sacrifices that you make during the career span. Location: Face to Face (with the desired number due to Covid19 Victorian and Federal government restrictions including Zoom streaming. There will be refreshments but if the restrictions are lifted or relaxed further, the possibility for attendees for a dinner (based on approval) with industrial and academics to mingle and discuss engineering but also way forward after almost 2 years of no contact. All members, students, industry and academic professionals and other engineering discipline representatives and societies in Victoria. Financial Sponsor: Any industrial organisations (private or government) are greatly appreciated to provide sponsorship (from $500 to 2000 max.) which will be utilised for future events with High-Calibre Academic and Industry speakers including Distinguished Professors Talks, Student Prizes for projects to various universities in Victoria, Project competitions across all universities and prizes for students at IEEE conferences held in Victoria and Social functions.

What is it and how do we forecast demand to manage the Grid?


IEEE Power Energy Society (PES) VIC Chapter WIP Seminar: DERMS: What is it and how do we forecast demand to manage the Grid? Zoom Link: Contact: IEEE PES Victorian chapters– [email protected] Abstract: (Speakers: Dr Thilaksha Silva, CitiPower/Powercor/United Energy) CitiPower, Powercor & United Energy is the largest electricity distributor in Victoria, Australia, delivering electricity to over 1.8 million residential households and commercial customers across Victoria. We are a data-driven organisation, and we exploit Big Data from over 1.8 million active smart meters in our Advanced Metering Infrastructure Smart Meter Network. Our electricity grid was initially designed for one-way directional flow distributed from a centralised generation source to end consumers. Over time, the electricity grid has grown at both HV and LV levels. This increased penetration of Distributed Energy Resources has created new challenges. We initiated the Low Voltage-Distributed Energy Resource Management System (LV-DERMS) to better manage and control the stability of our network by automatic controlling of air-conditioner energy consumption. This allows users to reduce consumption during peak periods. We identify distribution substations that are prone to stress during hot weather due to peak capacity constraints such as residential air conditioner loads. In this talk, I will demonstrate our LV-DERMS Architecture from forecasting demand for those stressed distribution substations, calculating overload, creating events, event monitoring via Sensibo device, and post-event reporting. You will learn how we control the load on the LV network to help balance the grid and to avoid risks of blackouts and power quality issues on the constrained areas of the network. Registration:
