Welcome to the IEEE Power and Energy Society of Western Australia

The IEEE Power and Energy Society (PES) Western Australia Chapter was formed on the 1st October, 1996. On 26 January 2004, the Chapter expended its organisation to include the field of power electronics, and became joint PES/PELS Chapter. The aims of the Chapter are, through the activities of the Chapter,

  • to promote the study and practice of power systems & power electronics engineering
  • to interchange technical information and experience in power engineering & power electronics
  • to foster friendships among members
  • to promote linkage with other PES and PELS Chapters in Australia and overseas.

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

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.
