Speech title:

Renewable Energy Resources Integration in Power Systems: Circuits and Information Engineering perspective



Electricity systems around the world are experiencing a radical transition as the consequence of replacing fossil fuels, used for electricity production, with sustainable and cleaner energies. The growing penetration of renewable energies requires smarter techniques capable of handling the impact of such systems. Australia is currently experiencing a significant amount of solar photovoltaic systems. This talk will focus on various technical challenges of the large integration of such systems from the perspective of the electric circuits. Then, various examples of information engineering will be provided in how these technical challenges can be forecasted and controlled.


Porf. Shahnia's research falls under Distribution networks, Microgrid and Smart grid concepts. He has authored one book and 11 book chapters and 100+ peer-reviewed scholarly articles in international conferences and journals, as well as being an editor of 6 books.
