The IEEE UK and Ireland Section’s Power & Energy Society Chapter presents 'Entrepreneurial Leadership – A Practitioner's Guide'. You know that Entrepreneurial Leadership is an interesting subject by the number of academics that have written learned papers on the subject! However, this evening's interactive event will be from the perspective of a practitioner rather than [...]
The primary aim of this IEEE PES Distinguished Lecture is to discuss how, based on both technical and economic considerations, there is a need for introducing new analysis and modelling frameworks that are capable to securely deal with low-inertia system operation and make future low-carbon power systems more resilient to high-impact, low-probability events.
PV-rich communities will pose significant technical and economic challenges to distribution networks - but also some opportunities. For this PV-rich future to thrive, more intelligent, flexible electricity networks - or Smart Grids - are likely to play an important role.
With the rapid increase in the connection of distributed generation and anticipated new load (electric vehicles particularly), Distributed Network Operators (DNOs) are facing new challenges: thermal constraints, voltage issues, protection, electrical losses, and high costs to maintain, reinforce, and manage the networks.
