The decarbonization agenda pushes the power system to rapidly transform from fossil fuel-based synchronized generation to renewable-powered Inverter-Based Resources (IBRs) that are asynchronously connected. Such a transformation leads to enormous challenges in power system modelling, control, monitoring, operation and planning.

This summer school (running from September 2-6) aims to provide a holistic view of these challenges and identify the emerging research directions for future IBR-dominated power systems. More specifically, the summer school covers the following topics:

  • Modelling and Control of Power Converters
  • System Stability Definition and Analysis Methods
  • Novel Protection Solutions
  • Development of Monitoring, Simulation and Forecasting Techniques
  • Optimization Tools and Economic Analysis
  • System Services and Market Design
  • Assessment and Enhancement of System Security, Reliability and Resilience

Organizer: Control and Power Group, Imperial College London (Contact: Dr Fei Teng)

The Control and Power Group at Imperial College London has 20 academic members and is a prominent division within the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. The group is dedicated to advancing the fields of control systems and power engineering through innovative research and education. Renowned for its cutting-edge work, the group focuses on addressing the challenges posed by modern control systems and the integration of renewable energy sources into the power grid. In recent years, the group has developed world-leading research portfolios in IBR-dominated Power Systems.
