PES Day 2021 Webinars | How to Get Published With IEEE by Edward Wong, Content Online, and Smart Microgrids by Dr Mousa Marzband,  Northumbria University


IEEE UK and Ireland PES Chapter in conjunction with the IEEE Student Branch Chapter at Northumbria University, and UK and Ireland Section Ambassador Rahul R Urs had the pleasure of hosting two PES Day Webinars; the Young Professionals talk “How to Get Published with IEEE” by Edward Wong and a technical talk “Smart Microgrids” by Dr Mousa Marzband.

The event took place on Monday, 26th April 2021, 15:00– 17:00 BST and had a great participation with nearly 30 participants.

Webinar 1: How to Get Published with IEEE by Edward Wong, Content Online

This workshop is intended to boost research exposure and reputation. Tips on how to organise and structure a high-quality document, choose a suitable IEEE periodical or conference for paper submission were discusses, as well as literature review with IEEE Xplore. Furthermore, it was explored the IEEE’s peer review and submission procedures, as well as some of the most common explanations for paper rejection.

Webinar 2: Smart Microgrids by Dr Mousa Marzband,  Northumbria University

This webinar presented a smart Transactive Energy (TE) framework in which home microgrids (H-MGs) can create coalitions to gain market competitiveness by collaborating with one another in a multiple H-MG scheme. Profit allocation due to H-MG coalition is a critical problem for making the most effective use of installed resources across the entire multiple H-MG scheme. In addition, demand-side management strategies that aim to develop frameworks to allow for a flatter demand curve which can be used to achieve energy production based on renewable resources in the multiple H-MG are discussed.
