As penetration of renewable energy sources keeps increasing in power grids, the interactions between innovative and legacy systems has become relevant, tending to bring in a series of challenges on the grid stability and performance. To tackle such challenges in modern power grids, researchers and engineers work on new comprehensive concepts and operational procedures involving distributed energy resources, power electronics, networked controllers and computational intelligence.
This workshop aims to serve for sharing the latest research progresses and industry practices in modern power grids. This session will count on the experience of Prof. Deepakraj M Divan, director of the Georgia Tech Center for Distributed Energy and past president of the IEEE Power Electronics Society. Moreover, other experts from the industry and research institutions will share their insights on the most relevant challenges and trends to make the grids of the future a reality today.
