We would like to invite you to a guest lecture lecture by Professor Nikolai Voropai.

What: “Cascading Outages and Emergency Control System of Power Grids – Russian Experience” .

When:  Monday, 23.03 at 15.00

Where: Beijing-2  Auditorium(MSM)

Abstract: The lecture will determine the specifics of the Unified Energy System (UES) of Russia and the key steps of cascading outage development are analyzed. The structurization of emergency operation control services in electric power system is considered. Principles of operation of the grid control centers are discussed. A hierarchical emergency control system of the UES of Russia is presented. A technology for cascading outages analysis is suggested. Important trends in electric power systems, and requirements for control principles are discussed. The possibilities of smart grid control strategy and tools are suggested.

Speaker introduction: Professor Nikolai Voropai – Director of Energy Systems Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), Irkutsk, head of a department at Irkutsk State Technical University, member of a number distinguished engineering associations including APERC Advisory Board, IAEE, IEEE, CIGRE, IFAC, member of the Moscow International Energy Club and Electro-technical Academy of the Russian Federation. In addition, professor Voropai is the author of more than 450 scientific publications in refereed journals and conference proceedings

The Energy Systems Institute (ESI) SB RAS was established in August, 1960 within the Siberian Branch of the USSR Academy of Sciences. The key task of the Institute is comprehensive studies on energy in its broad sense. The objects of research and application are energy and physicotechnical systems: energy sectors of territories, regions, country and world, that comprise electric power, heat-, oil- and gas supply systems, coal industry, nuclear energy as well as prospective energy technologies and equipment.

The lecture is to be followed by the Q&A session.
