SmartGrid Seminar: Hsiao-Dong Chiang, Toward Real-Time Monitoring, Look-Ahead Assessment and Forecasting Engine for Active Distribution Networks
Abstract: United Kingdom Power Networks (UKPN) provides power to a quarter of the UK’s population via its electricity distribution networks in London that span to the east and southeast of England. This talk will present an advanced distribution analytics power network tool (ADAPT) codeveloped by BSI and UKPN. ADAPT is an advanced real-time monitoring, state estimation platform, contingency analysis, corrective control. In addition, look ahead platform (30 minutes to 2 hours ahead) offers look-ahead assessment of the network taking the uncertainties of renewable energy into account. ADAPT completes with energy forecasting tools which provide input into forecasting future system cases (e.g. 1 hour ahead to 24 hours ahead). ADAPT has several key features such as: State Estimation, Power flow, Contingency Analysis, Interactive Single Line Diagram (132 kV, 33 kV, and external connections), Energy forecaster for load, solar, and wind, Corrective control for removing violations in the system.
Hsiao-Dong Chiang (M’87-SM’91-F’97) received his PhD in EECS from the University of California, Berkeley. He has been a professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University, Ithaca, NY since 1998. He holds 20 U.S. and overseas patents and several consultant positions. He and his research team have published more than 380 papers in refereed journals and conference proceedings. His current research interests include theoretical development and practical applications of nonlinear system theory, nonlinear computations, nonlinear optimization methods, and their practical applications to electric circuits. Dr. Chiang is Founder of Bigwood Systems Inc. (in 1995) and Founder of Global Optimal Technology Inc. (in 2000), New York. He served as Associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for two terms and is currently Associate editor of IEEE Journal of Selected Emerging Circuits and Systems.
