Seminar details
Title Intelligent System Strategies for Reconfiguration of Power Systems Including Distributed Generation and Intentional Islanding
Speaker Prof. Noel N. Schulz
Date 12.10.2012. 08:00 - 11:00
Location Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, Grey Hall


The seminar presented experiences and recent advances in the area of power systems with emphasis on intelligent power distribution strategies. More about the speaker and seminar you can find in the detailed news content.



With the increased penetration of distributed generation, there are more opportunities to reconfigure the power system to help with load leveling, restoration or improved stability. The talk will discuss research activities looking at various intelligent system techniques such as intelligent agents, genetic algorithms and particle swarm optimization to reconfigure the power system taking into account distributed generation as well as intentional islanding.
