Topic: Smart Grid Research and Power Hardware in loop implementation of Smart Microgrid at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University
Time: 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, September 18th, 2018
Venue: Room 201, Electrical Engineering Building, Yuquan Campus
Smart Grid features advanced technologies for monitoring, control and optimization of power grid, thus enabling high performance system operation with increasing penetration of renewables and other emerging technologies. This talk will firstly cover the smart grid research activities ongoing at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, followed by detailed introduction on a power hardware in loop implementation of smart microgrid system at HKPU. Technical details concerning the microgrid system monitoring, data acquisition, and control will be given. Specially, based on the microgrid system, a new prediction free smart real time dispatch algorithm is developed and will be briefly presented.
