PELS Workshop on Representations of Power Electronics for Grid Dynamic (PEGD)

5th December 2019 
Imperial College London, UK

IEEE Workshop on Representations of Power Electronics for Grid Dynamic (PEGD) Studies

Following the success of last year in Aalborg, the Second IEEE Workshop on Representations of Power Electronics for Grid Dynamic (PEGD) Studies will be held at Imperial College London, UK, on 5 December 2019. This year we again have a very strong team of speakers discussing the challenges on the modelling, control and protection of modern grids with high penetrations of power electronics. The workshop is sponsored by the IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS).

Power electronic converters are replacing synchronous generators as major sources of grids on the pathway towards decarbonisation. This emerging change creates new flexibilities in grid control and operation, but also induces new behaviours and constraints in grid dynamics, which pose a challenge to both converter design and grid stability and protection. 

This workshop will bring together power electronic and power system engineers to share the recent researches and industry experiences on modelling, control and protection of converter dominated grids. It aims at providing a platform to share different perspectives on fundamental principles and technology direction, leading to a consensus in the community. There will be a number of invited presentations given by the leading experts from both the industry and academia, and a panel discussion in the end. All pre-sentations and discussions in the workshop will be in English.
