The role of communications in smart grid applications

28th April 2016, 13:00 to 14:00, E245, School of Engineering & Computing Sciences, Dr Hong Sun

Smart grid is known as a promising technology for tackling many challenging issues in power systems, such as integrating intermittent RESs and meeting rising electricity demand. To realise the full potential of smart grids, it is essential to develop appropriate ICT infrastructures and techniques, and properly integrate them to power systems.

This talk will present recent advances in the field of wideband communications, and their applications in smart grids. Moreover, latest research results from current EU-H2020 project - SmarterEMC2 will be presented.

Dr. Hongjian Sun (Fellow DEI, Senior Member IEEE, Fellow HEA) is a Lecturer in Smart Grid at the University of Durham, U.K. He received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Edinburgh, U.K., in 2011, and then joined King’s College London, U.K., as a Postdoctoral Research Associate. To date, he has authored one IEEE 1900.6a Standard, contributed three book chapters, and published over 50 papers in refereed journals and international conferences. His recent research interests include Smart Grid, Wireless Communications, and Signal Processing. He has been involved in several research projects including U.K. EPSRC project - LampPosT, EU H2020 project-SmarterEMC2, and China NSFC projects.
