Ian Hiskens of University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, USA

Topic:

Enhanced Power System Responsiveness through Load Control

Responsive load control offers a particularly effective approach to compensating for the variability inherent in large-scale renewable generation, and mitigating the effects of generation and transmission outages. Furthermore, as plug-in electric vehicles grow in popularity, scheduling their charging load will become vitally important to prevent local overloads, and to ensure optimal use of generation resources. Fortunately expansive communications networks and advances in distributed control algorithms facilitate precise, non-disruptive forms of load control. The presentation will discuss a range of control strategies, from distribution-level controls that prevent localized overloads to games that arise in coordinating the charging of large numbers of electric vehicles

Biography:

Ian A Hiskens received the BEng (Elec) and BAppSc (Math) degrees from the Capricornia Institute of Advanced Education, Rockhampton, Australia in 1980 and 1983 respectively.  He received the PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Newcastle, Australia in 1991. Dr. Hiskens is the Vennema Professor of Engineering in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, USA. From 1980 to 1992, he was with the Queensland Electricity Supply Industry, where he held the positions of EMS Security Applications Engineer and Planning Engineer Transmission Systems. From 1992 to 1999, he was a Senior Lecturer at the University of Newcastle, Australia, from 1999 to 2002 a Visiting Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and from 2002 to 2008 a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is an Honorary Professor at the University of Queensland.

Professor Hiskens' research focuses on power system analysis, in particular the modelling, dynamics and control of large-scale, networked, nonlinear systems. He is involved in numerous IEEE activities in the Power and Energy Society, Control Systems Society, Circuits and Systems Society, and Systems Council. He is an Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Power Systems, and a past Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems-I: Regular Papers and the IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology. He is the Treasurer of the IEEE Systems Council. Professor Hiskens is a Fellow of the IEEE, a Fellow of Engineers Australia, and a Chartered Professional Engineer in Australia.
