Invited talk on the state-of-art technologies in power systems, given by Prof. Sri Niwas Singh.

Research presentations by:

  • Dahunsi Okekunle: introduction to real-time smart grid simulation test rig (based on OpenPMU and OPAL-RT) and PMU optimal deployment algorithms in distribution network.
  • Obinna Unigwe: Smart coordination of battery energy storage systems for voltage control in distribution networks with high penetration of photovoltaics
  • Mingyue Wei: multi-objective optimise algorithms on inverters in PV system.
  • Mehdi Zeinali: update the communication technologies could be used in D-DIEM project.
  • Talk by Deepak Padmanabhan: warping Resilient Time Series Embeddings

Project Milestones - Outcomes - Deliverables

Five papers have been published in journals and conference proceedings

Special session on Intelligent Systems Applications for Sustainable Electrification has been arranged at the ISAP 2019 conference in December.

Four papers in the final stage of completion:

  • Mingyue Wei's journal: Multi-objective Smart Inverted Control Strategy for Distribution Network with Photovoltaics Infeed
  • Yuanda Gao's ISAP conference: Development of Hardware in-the-Loop Platform for Distribution Networks
  • Deepak's ISAP conference: Time Series Representation Learning Applications for Power Analytics
  • Mingyue Wei's ISAP conference: Smart Coordination of Battery Storage Units and PV Inverters for CVR Control in Distribution Network

Smart grid real-time simulation rig is close to completion at the University of Edinburgh.
