August 2018

The UWA faculty learning and teaching awards breakfast was on the morning of 1st August.

One of the recurring awards ‘IEEE PES WA Chapter Prize in Power Systems Analysis was presented to Mr Jake Sacino by chapter chairperson Mr Harry McDonald. Jake was most appreciative of the award and IEEE PES.

The prize is awarded to the student with the highest mark in the unit ELEC 5505 Power Systems Analysis.

The prize was established by the IEEE PES WA Chapter in recognition of the contribution by the then UWA Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the IEEE Power Con 2000 Conference. It was an initiative of the late Prof Kit Po Wong and there is an intention to name the future years prizes in memory of him.

Also pictured is Prof Tyrone Fernando the current teacher of ELEC 5505.

July 2018

In an IEEE PES organised event, Prof. Pierluigi Mancarella, Chair of Electrical Power Systems and Veski Fellow from The University of Melbourne delivered a seminar on: 


Reliability and resilience in low-carbon, low-inertia power systems:
Challenges, opportunities and role of smart grid technologies

 

!!Link to the presentation recorded video!!


AEMO's Mr Dean Sharafi welcomed the audience and outlined how IEEE PES fitted into WA and the international scene.


Mancarella outlined the main themes of his presentation being:

> Context for a changing landscape
> Renewables and techno-economic implications
> A textbook example: the South Australia “Black System” event
> Emerging solutions
> Concluding remarks

His presentation slides were informative and easy to understand. Some of his thinking about the scientific past and application to the future were challenging and philosophical. There was a legacy of science and engineering overcoming significant challenges landing on the moon, splitting the atom to name a few.

He called on black start events, the South Australian blackouts case ,(a question of resilience or reliability) and the power system security assessment of the future NEM including the Finkel review. A great deal was discussed about changing the power system inertia, and the integration of battery systems and other new network services.
He also posed the main question: Do we need a stronger, bigger or smarter grid?
He finished by desribing how Virtual Power Plants can be applied at a small scale and large scale (city). As in the past with the great men like Edison we need to have some 'back to the future' breakthroughs -
considering techno-economic and reliability constraints. (the energy trilemma)


Approximately 50 people attended this event and the senior PES/PELS committee in attendance judged this as the most well presented event for a long time. His presentation was clear, spoken with authority and relevant.
It was a great privilge to have someone of Mancarellis calibre visit and present to us.

Special thanks go to SM Muyeen for initiating the event, AEMO for organising the venue and AEMO's Michelle Kenworthy-Groen for the registration and videography.

Technical Event

Optimal Sizing of Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) in Microgrids by Dr. Thair Mahmoud

 

Thursday 19th April 2018, 152 St Georges Terrace, Central Park – 1600 – 1730.

  

 Dr. Thair Mahmoud

Dr. Thair Mahmoud

 

The first scheduled PES/PELS technical activity was a huge success. There was nearly 100 in attendance with 20 of those being IEEE members. It was a full house in the theatrette. The topic and speaker an interesting attraction.

Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) can be key players in optimising the operation of microgrids due to their ability to perform multi-operational functions e.g. demand management, power quality control, backup power and energy trading. Due to their high installation cost, finding their right size is an essential part of the planning and design of a microgrids development.

Integrating BESS within the unit-commitment problem in microgrids requires complicated decision making algorithms and can formulate another optimisation problem. The objective of this problem is to reduce the operation cost at minimum BESS size.

This lecture presented the art of using Artificial Intelligence (AI) in operating microgrids and the use of BESS to reduce their operation costs. The lecture also covered the BESS sizing options through a practical application and highlighted  the role of intelligence in reducing their size and maximising their utilisation.

Thair spoke at an easy pace for about 1 hr and 15 minutes followed by approx 15 minutes of interesting questions. Harry McDonald the PES/PELS chair and WA section   provided the introduction and vote of thanks. AEMO’s assistance in coordinating the venue and registrations was appreciated.

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW
Electric Power Systems around the world are currently undergoing rapid and transforma onal changes. Distributed Genera on, Nano-grids, Micro-grids with and without storage are now emerging as common features of today’s complex power system. The higher costs of supply- ing power to remote areas are now largely o set through renewable power genera on and storage systems. Ordinary consumers are now prosumers and are looking to be self-reliant with their energy needs. High penetra on of renewables including roo op PV systems are dis- placing signi cant energy requirements from the main grid. This introduces both challenges and opportuni es for the grid. Many countries have developed ambi ous policies for a large part of their energy needs to be sourced from renewable power genera on. Large scale inte- gra on of variable power to grid has its own challenges and recent events of South Australia are forcing people to rethink policies on pene- tra on targets. Electric vehicles are becoming popular by the day and with ba ery prices decreasing one would expect that the EV will slowly but surely emerge as a principle mode of transporta on. Power Electronic Converters play a huge role in the make-up for most of the emerging technologies. Their compliances to grid requirement in maintaining stability, protec on, ac ve and reac ve power support are of paramount importance in managing modern power systems. Distributed Energy Clusters and Exchanges, Demand Side Management, op - mised mix of energy sources that maintain grid stability and reduce u lity capital investment are key challenges. Smart Power Solu ons in- cluding online monitoring of asses and resilient power networks and their ability to ‘self-heal’ is now high on the agenda. ICT applica ons in Smart Grid are expected to grow further and issues such as cybersecurity need to be addressed.
This one day workshop on Advancement Development in Electric Power Technologies (ADEPT) will provide an introduc on to various emerg- ing technologies of Power System and its exis ng and upcoming challenges. In addi on to panel discussion, the following topics will be dis- cussed in depth in the forum:-
 Large Scale Renewable Energy Penetra on Challenges
 Condi on Monitoring of Power System Assets
 Energy Storage Technologies and their applica ons
 New Control and Communica on Architectures in Smart Grid

June 2017

Grid Integration of Electric Vehicles – Lunchbox 14th Jun 2017

Presenter: Dr. Prof. Udaya K. Madawala BSc (Hons), Ph.D. (sponsored by IEEE)
Location: Western Power Head office, G16 (100 seat limited)
Date/Time: 14th June 2017; 12.00 pm – 1.00 pm

The Presentation
The seminar presents trends and the latest advances in grid integration of EVs and its impact on the power grid and infrastructure. EVs are increasingly perceived as the most promising technology for sustainable living with the potential for improving air quality and energy security with demand control using the vehicle to grid (V2G) concept. However, EV technology has its own challenges, particularly in relation to developing an efficient, compact and reliable power interface for both charging and discharging.
