2017 IEEE Smart Energy Grid Engineering (SEGE) Oshawa
14 August, 2017 - 17 August, 2017250CAD – 450CAD
This event will provide unique opportunity to have fruitful discussions about smart energy grid infrastructures, technologies, engineering design methods, and best practices that address industrial challenges. The event includes large number of speakers and quality papers that cover energy generation, transmission and distribution infrastructures, energy storage, Directionsation electrification, information and communications, and security.
Smart Energy Grids are energy networks that promise to enhance the operational efficiency of nationwide energy and power supply via distributed generation with bi-directional energy and electricity flow. This objective is achieved by allowing intelligent monitoring and control of different components within the distribution and transmission lines as well as other systems from utilities of natural gas, thermal energy, electricity, and water on the one side to the end user on the other side, while maintaining the energy and power quality, security, reliability and safety with minimum environmental impacts. Governments around the world are investing heavily in smart energy grids to ensure optimum energy use and supply, enable better planning for outage responses and recovery, and facilitate the integration of heterogeneous technologies such as renewable energy systems, electrical vehicle networks, and smart homes around the grid. Smart Energy Grids present enormous engineering challenges in the design and integration of energy and electrical grids with communication and network technologies, along with substantial questions of security and privacy of different components within the grid.
The SEGE conference aims at providing an opportunity to discuss various engineering challenges of smart energy grid design and operation by focusing on advanced methods and practices for designing different components and their integration within the grid. It also provides a forum for researchers from academia and professionals from industry, as well as government regulators to tackle these challenges, and discuss and exchange knowledge and best practices about design and implementation of Smart Energy Grids.
