SYDNEY-TSINGHUA WORKSHOP 2014
Approaches to building the energy networks of the 21st Century
[6 August 2014]
Research group leaders from Tsinghua University in China and the University of Sydney will come together to share their latest research findings on building the energy networks of the 21st century.
Our first Sydney-Tsinghua workshop brings together the research portfolios of both institutions to share research findings on the challenges of energy systems integration and the potential technological solutions with which to tackle them, based on research at each respective university. Researchers will also discuss potential collaborations that might accelerate the transition process. This is an opportunity to develop projects and initiatives that will further the development world-class research in modern power systems.
Overview and goals of the workshop:
This one-day workshop will feature lectures delivered by six distinguished international scholars who are active in or closely affiliated with the IEEE SMC Society or by other academics who have achieved high-level recognition from the IEEE
The workshop is dedicated to promoting scientific discussion on modern power systems and the integration of technological enhancements and networking interconnections between critical infrastructure systems to heighten system availability and resilience.
The workshop themes are:
- power system and its automation
- high voltage and insulation technology
- power electronics and electrical machinery system
- electrical theory and new technology
Tsinghua University, referred to as the 'MIT of China', is a member of the consortium of China Nine Research Universities (C09) and is one of the world's leading Engineering universities and is considered as one of the most prestigious and selective university's in China. The School has taken the lead in research collaboration with multinational corporations such as Alcatel-Lucent, General Electric, Proctor & Gamble and BP.
The University of Sydney is committed to furthering research and teaching linkages and high-level partnerships with universities in China, in particular Tsinghua.
