IEEE PES Day 2024 Celebration-Power System Resilience: Modeling, Analysis and Practice Special Forum was successfully held

On April 12, 2024, an IEEE PES Day 2024 celebration activity named “Electric Power System Resilience: Modeling, Analysis and Practice” special forum was held successfully in Shanghai, China. It is sponsored by IEEE PES China Chapters Council (PCCC), and co-sponsored by the IEEE PES Women in Power China (WIP China), IEEE PES Young Professionals China (YP China), and IEEE PES Wuhan Chapter. It is organized by Shanghai Jiao Tong University. And it is a “Special Session VIII” within the 9th Asian Conference on Power and Electrical Engineering (ACPEE 2024).

This special forum is a part of the 2024 IEEE PES Day celebration events in China. IEEE PES Day is an annual celebration for IEEE PES members worldwide, with the theme for 2024 being “Empowering Electric Mobility Innovation.” During the forum, some female and young scholars presented on topics related to the effects of electric vehicle charging and discharging on the resilience of urban power systems.

Dr. Jessica Bian, former president of IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES), and Dr. Shuli Wen from Shanghai Jiao Tong University were invited to give welcome speeches. As a power system resilience expert who has worked extensively at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), President Bian was intended to engage with the live audience through online access. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen local thunderstorms leading to power outages and network disruptions, she was unable to access the online part for the session. President Bian conveyed her deep interest in the forum, regrets about the non-attendance, and her sincere congratulations on the successful organization of the event. Dr. Shuli Wen, as the Publication Chair of ACPEE 2024 from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, delivered the welcome speech, which warmly welcome the invited guests and participants of the conference and particularly thanking President Bian, the hosts, and all attendees for their contributions to the success of the meeting.

During the subsequent oral session, multiple female and young scholars from Shanghai University of Electric Power, Woosuk University, Xi’an Jiaotong University, China Agricultural University, Wuhan University of Technology, Guangzhou Power Engineering Research Institute, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, and The Hong Kong Polytechnic University shared the latest research achievements in power system resilience.

Dr. Ying Du, from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, presented her insights on the theme of the 2024 IEEE PES Day, “Empowering Electric Mobility Innovation”, and delivered a speech titled “Spatio-temporal Impact of Electric Vehicles Charging on the Resilience of Urban Power Systems” Addressing the current impact of electric vehicle charging on the resilience of urban power systems, she shared her research on innovations in electric mobility from multiple aspects, including load management and peak-valley differences, the upgrading of power grid infrastructure, and the planning and construction of charging facilities.

The special forum were brilliantly presented, with female presenters accounting for 50% of the eight presenters, and young presenters making up 100%. Many young scholars, including graduate students, participated in this special forum, infusing the entire event with fresh vitality. The chair, Dr. Chen Lei from Wuhan University, and Dr. Hou Hui from Wuhan University of Technology, presented participation certificates to the attendees. Finally, Ying Xu, a young female engineer from Guangzhou Power Engineering Design and Research Institute Co., Ltd., was awarded the Best Oral Presentation, bringing the forum to a successful conclusion.

The forum provided an effective communication platform for female and young experts and scholars in the fields of electrical and energy both domestically and internationally, sharing cutting-edge scientific and technological information on the resilience of power systems. At the same time, as one of the series of events for the 2024 IEEE PES Day in China, it publicized the theme for the year “Empowering Electric Mobility Innovation”, contributing to the understanding of IEEE PES, the second largest society of IEEE, by more female and young scholars. It also helped to further integrate into the WIP (Women in Power) and YP (Young Professionals) organizations within the PCCC (IEEE PES China Chapters Council).
