一、主题：Control and Optimization of Smart Grid
Smart grid aims at improving the efficiency of power grid and accommodating more intermittent renewable generations. Communication networks act as the backbone of information exchange of the smart grid control and monitoring, and play an important role to integrate distributed generation, demand-side response and energy storage. However, the communication networks may introduce time delays and data packet drop into the control loop of smart grid. This talk will brief results of 1) smart grid control and synthesis considering the impacts of communication networks, including wide-area damping control and load frequency control; 2) data-driven robust optimisation results of how to deal with uncertainties brought by renewable generation into power system schedule and dispatch; 3) renewable energy generation and integration.
Dr. Lin Jiang received the B.S. and M.E. degrees from the Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China, and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Liverpool, Liverpool, U.K., in 1992, 1996, and 2001, respectively, all in electrical engineering. He currently is a Reader in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Electronics at UoL, with expertise of control and optimisation of smart grid, renewable energy, and power electronics. His research has been well supported by research council and industry with total direct budget around 2.5m pounds, including five EPSRC projects and several industrial projects. He has published over 130 peer reviewed journal papers, including around 50 IEEE Transaction papers and 16 ESI Highly Cited Papers. He is recognised as Highly Cited Researcher 2019 by Web of Science, with Google h-index=34/ 4547 citations (https://scholar.google.co.uk/citations?user=nZCtaPgAAAAJ&hl=en) . He is Associate Editors of IFAC Journal: Control Engineering Practice, IET Renewable Power Generation, and IET Smart Grid. His current research interests include wide-area monitoring and control of smart grid; optimisation of smart grid with high uncertainties; control of power electronic enabled power system.
