International Lecture Notice: Smart Grid Optimization Supported by Data Analytics and Energy Storage [14:00pm, October 23, 2017]

TITLE: Smart Grid Optimization Supported by Data Analytics and Energy Storage


DATE: 14:00pm, October 23, 2017. 


ADDRESS: The 705 meeting room of Building 1


SPEAKER: Prof. Saman K. Halgamuge

Saman Halgamuge, Fellow of the IEEE, is a Professor and the Director/Head of Research School of Engineering, the Australian National University. He has previously held appointments as Professor and Associate Dean International at the University of Melbourne. He graduated with Dipl.-Ing and PhD degrees in Data Engineering (“Datentechnik”) from Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany and B.Sc. Engineering from University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka. His research record including 250 publications is in Data engineering, which includes Data Analytics and Optimization focusing on applications in Mechatronics, Energy, Biology and Medicine.



Energy sector in most countries is undergoing a complex transition not only due to access to increasingly affordable solar technologies but also due to the increased ability to predict how electricity will be used by consumers, which then can be used to optimize the usage of non-dispatchable energy. In Australia there are remote areas where grid electricity is not available and cost prohibitive. Therefore, fully renewable off grid opportunities for houses will be a practical and sustainable solution for energy crisis and challenges facing in Australia and other countries.
