Doctoral Forum of UK-China on Smart Grid Successfully Held

Edited byzx Date:2010-09-20 16:04

Doctoral Forum of UK-China on Smart Grid was successfully held in Hangzhou from Sept.12 to Sept.17, as a way to track the latest progress of theory and application on international smart grid. Sponsered by RCUK China Office and NSFC, the forum was co-hosted by Zhejiang University, Queen's University Belfast, Bath University and Hong Kong Polytechnic University, and organized by College of Electrical Engineering, Zhejiang University. There were over 60 delegates from different universities and industries from UK, Australia and Hongkong. Prof Wen Fushuan (Zhejiang University), and Prof Wang Haifeng (Queen's University Belfast) co-chaired the opening ceremony of the forum.

All through the forum, delegates appreciated 11 presentations from experts such as Prof Xu Zhao, Prof Wang Haifeng, Prof Y.T. Yong, Prof Wen Fushuan, Prof Jiang Daozhuo, Prof Zhang Jianmin and Prof Gan Deqiang. Their topics focused on three aspects: research and application progress on both domestic and international smart grid, key theories and techniques associated with the smart grid, and development and application on renewable energies. Heated discussions were done among those present on the aspect of development situation of smart grid in UK, North Europe and South Korea, algorithms and technology on smart grid development, applications of power electronics in the smart grid, information transmission in smart grid, software drawing of the load distribution, clean energy development in Hong Kong, wind power forecasting and wind farm planning, ocean current power generation and new energy supply of island, stable operation of grid-connected wind farms, and intelligent dispatching.

The experts and delegates reach the consensus that, with the gradual depletion of primary energy and global warming, smart grid and renewable energy development will certainly become a new tendency of future power industry. The research and exploration into this field is very likely to help us find back a good living environment and maintain economic development as well.
