International workshop on data uncertainty in smart systems


Research Institute for Smart and Green Cities (RISGC) and Centre for Smart Grid and Information Convergence (CeSGIC) at XJTLU are hosting this workshop, aiming to bring together researchers and experts from external and internal, domestic and overseas academic institutes to exchange original ideas, discuss innovative designs, address important problems and share unique experiences in the field of smart grids and data processing.

In the past decade, there has been an increasing demand on the sustainable usage of natural resources and renewable energy resources, attracting growing interests from academia, industry and government. Considering the increasing complexity that the renewable energy resources will bring into the power grid, the conventional power grid needs to be further developed to optimally manage the resources systematically to increase economy, reliability, flexibility and efficiency.

This further development relies heavily on modern information and communication technology, such as data processing technology, and has transformed the traditional one-directional electricity usage into a bi-directional or multi-directional electricity usage. The smart grid was born, with a number of unprecedented technical challenges faced by electrical engineers. Further collaborations are in great need to tackle these challenges.

Since its launch, RISGC/CeSGIC has taken on its designed duty for promoting smart grid technology and bringing together interesting researchers and experts in this area for mutually-beneficial collaborations and inspiring discussions. This workshop demonstrates the commitment and determination of this centre.

This workshop has eight invited speakers with two Chinese speakers, from Chiang Mai University, Canada, Pusan National University, Chunagbuk National University & Chungnam National University, South Korea, Tianjin Polytech University, China.

As respected experts in their dedicated research areas, each of the speakers will share their latest research outcomes and should be able to inspire more novel ideas and innovative proposals amongst the attendees. Meanwhile, the workshop will provide abundant interactive mingling opportunities, Q&A sessions and panel discussions which should enable in-depth discussion and communication.

Research Topics:

• Power plant modelling, optimisation and controller design
- Smart grid system and information
- Power system modelling and optimisation
- Power system controller design and application
• Energy system design for carbon neutral cities and green architecture
• Effective networking between energy sources and consumers
