Multifunctional Materials For Emerging Technologies

Online

Professor Federico Rosei Énergie Matériaux Télécommunications Research Centre (EMT), Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique (INRS),  https://inrs.ca/en/research/professors/federico-rosei/, Montreal, Canada, on behalf of IEEE Photonics Society This presentation focuses on structure property/relationships in advanced materials, emphasizing multifunctional systems that exhibit multiple functionalities. Such systems are then used as building blocks for the fabrication of various emerging technologies. In particular, nanostructured materials synthesized via the bottom-up approach present an opportunity for future generation low-cost manufacturing of devices. We focus in particular on recent developments in solar technologies that aim to address the energy challenge, including third-generation photovoltaics, solar hydrogen production, luminescent solar concentrators and other optoelectronic devices.

Voltage and Frequency Control in Renewable-Rich Power Networks

Online

IEEE Power Energy Society (PES) Technical Seminar   Speaker: A/Prof. Lasantha Meegahapola, RMIT University) Power system frequency and voltage control are of paramount importance to maintain power grid stability and security. With the large-scale integration of power electronic converter interfaced renewable power generation into power grids (e.g. wind generation and solar-PV), the conventional strategies to control and maintain system frequency and voltage are becoming inadequate. In some cases, the inadequacy of frequency and voltage control resources in the power grid has led to power system stability problems. Therefore, new strategies should be deployed in power grids to maintain frequency and voltage within acceptable levels stipulated in grid codes/ rules, such as by employing advanced control schemes in power electronic converter interfaced renewable generators (e.g. fast frequency response). This presentation will cover both the depth and breadth of aspects of power system frequency and voltage control in renewable rich power grids, including electricity market aspects related to frequency and voltage control.
