As invited by the NARI School of Electrical and Automation Engineering and the Jiangsu Engineering Laboratory for Integrated Energy with Electricity-Gas Interconnection, Professor Peng Wang has given us an academic report at Room 328, 1st Teaching Building at Zijin Campus on 11st August 2017, with entitled “Stochastic Modeling of Electric Vehicles as Movable Loads” and “Operational Reliability and Power Management of Power Systems with High Penetration of Renewables”.
Professor Peng Wang received his PhD degree from University of Saskatchewan, Canada in 1998 and he is now serving as a full time professor at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. His main research area includes reliability analysis of power system, renewable energy planning, energy conversion systems, hybrid AC/DC microgrid, intelligent distribution systems and new energy storage systems, within which he has got outstanding achievements regarding the DC/AC hybrid micro grids and the charging and discharging of electrical vehicles. Prof. Peng Wang has constant and continuous research interactions and cooperation with some leading universities in China, such as Harbin Institute of Technology, Wuhan University, Chongqing University and Tsinghua University. He has hold several national key research projects and published over 300 papers in international journals and conferences, and he has been served as the technical chairman in several international conferences.
In this report, Prof. Peng Wang start with the introduction of the combination of the transportation system and power system, considering multiple factors such as vehicle type, routine selection, and departing time. From this subject, he shared the experience with us how to select research topics. After this, he gave us another topic regarding the “Operational Reliability and Power Management of Power Systems with High Penetration of Renewables”. Finally, with his own experience, Prof. Peng Wang teach us that we will make it and get good results as long as we keep working and we are not afraid of failures or hard times.
Prof. Peng Wang’s exciting and vivid report has received active response from our graduate students and has expanded our thinking areas to some extent in the development of the power system subject and the power system lab.
