[Lecture] Data-driven Monitoring, Protection and Control of Future Power/Energy Systems

DEC . 03 2021

Speaker: Vladimir Terzija, Humboldt Fellow & IEEE Fellow

Host: He Guannan, Peking University

Time: 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm, December 3, 2021, BJ time

Venue: Zoom Meeting (ID: 931 5470 6054; Code: 318407)


As a result of high penetration of Converter Interfaced Generation (CIG), also called nonsynchronous generation, converter connected demand and mixed ac-dctransmission and even distribution networks, the nature of operation of modern electrical power systems became a challenge. The nature of the entire system became more complex, expressed in quite a new dynamic, requesting new approaches for monitoring, protection and control of such an important system,the system playing one of the most critical roles in progressing modernsocieties, the system enabling functioning of other critical infrastructures in all countries. On the other hand, availability of modern sensor and ICT technology opened new paradigms for coping with previously described challenges. The presentation is aiming at addressing new approaches of monitoring, protecting and controlling of future electrical power/energy systems. In this context, some of typical synchronized measurement technology-based Wide Area Monitoring, Protection and Control applications,also model-free and data driven, will be discussed and presented. Experience gathered from 3 flagship multi-million projects funded by Ofgem (UK) Network Innovation Competition, VISOR, EFCC and FITNESS projects, will be summarized and also discussed from the perspective of their extension to another level:integration of different energy systems and approaches for their operation,fostering flexibility and resilience of a particular integrated energy system.The presentation will also attempt to demonstrate some of results achieved through hardware in the loop testing using Real-time Digital Simulator (RTDS).


Vladimir Terzija was born in Donji Baraci (former Yugoslavia). He received the Dipl-Ing., M.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Belgrade, Belgrade, Serbia, in 1988, 1993,and 1997, respectively. He is a Full Professor at Skoltech, Moscow, Russian Federation. He is also a Distinguished Professor at the Shandong University, Jinan, China, where he has been since 2013. From 1997 to 1999, he was an Assistant Professor at the University of Belgrade, Belgrade, Serbia. From 2000 to 2006, he was a senior specialist for switchgear and distribution automationwith ABB, Ratingen, Germany. From 2006 to 2020 he was the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC) Chair Professor in Power System Engineering with the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, The University of Manchester, Manchester, U.K. He has been providing consultancy for major utilities in the UK and continental part of Europe. His research portfolio resulted in projects of the total value more than 50m USD. His current research interests include smart grid applications; wide-areamonitoring, protection, and control; multi-energy systems; switchgear and transient processes; ICT, data analytics and digital signal processing applications in power systems. Prof. Terzija is Editor in Chief of the International Journal of Electrical Power and Energy Systems, Alexander vonHumboldt Fellow, Fellow of IEEE, as well as a DAAD and Taishan Scholar. He is the recipient of the National Friendship Award, China (2019).
