Lecture by Professor Yuanzhang Sun

"Operation and Control of Industrial Power System with High Wind Power Penetration"

Come and join us as Visiting Professor Yuanzhang Sun gives an inspiring public lecture.

Time and Date: 10:00 – 11:30, May 31st, 2017
Place: Room 009, Building 325, Kgs. Lyngby, DK 2800

High penetration of wind power in power systems introduces significant challenges to the operation and control of power systems. The fluctuations of wind power require more fast balancing power in order to maintain secure and reliable operation. Traditionally, the balancing is handled by thermal and hydro power plants. In the future renewables based power systems, other resources, such as energy storage and load control, should be utilized in order to realize cost effective and efficient solutions.
In the talk, the results of a large demonstration project on load control to balance isolated industrial power systems will be presented. The key idea of the project is to control large scale industry load to balance power systems with high wind power penetration. The total budget of the demonstration project is 10 billion CNY and the demonstration was conducted in the eastern Inner Mongolia power system.

The following items will be presented.
- Wind power development status and challenges in China
- Concept and design of voltage-frequency coordinated control of large scale industry load
- Hardware-in-the-loop test and field implementation of the developed controller

Prof Yuanzhang Sun received the B.Eng. from Wuhan University in 1978, the M. Eng. from China Electric Power Research Institute (CEPRI) in 1982 and the Ph.D. from Tsinghua University in 1988.
He worked at Department of Electrical Engineering, Tsinghua University from 1988 to 2011 (Lecturer from 1988 to 1992, Associate Professor from 1992 to 1997, and a Full Professor from 1997 to 2011). He was the Dean of School of Electrical Engineering, Wuhan University, from 2005 to 2013. He has been a Full Professor with School of Electrical Engineering, Wuhan University since 2005. Currently, he is an Otto Mønsteds visiting professor at Department of Electrical Engineering, Technical University of Denmark and his visiting professorship is from May – July 2017.
Prof Sun’s research interests are power system stability and control, operational reliability of power systems, smart grid, and renewable energy.
