Abstract and biography

Abstract

To deal with the exhaustion of traditional energy resources (e.g., coal, fossil oil, gas) and environmental deterioration, a smart grid has been established to realize the integration of renewable distributed energy sources, leading to some new theoretical and technical issues in control and power management. In this talk, distributed coordinated control and energy management strategies for smart grids will be presented, mainly focusing on i) distributed finite-time secondary control of AC microgrids, ii) distributed resilient secondary control of multiple battery energy storage systems under DoS attacks, and iii) distributed energy management of smart grids. It is shown that the proposed methods have strong abilities in improving efficiency and reliability of smart grids.

High temperature superconductors: The future ?

Prof.Prof Tim Coombs.

Abstract and biography

Abstract

For decades Superconductors have promised high power, high efficiency, compact machines. To date, though, commercial applications are limited. Low Temperature Superconductors (LTS) are used for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in hospitals worldwide but High Temperature Superconductors (HTS) are capable of supporting currents and magnetic fields an order of magnitude higher, than those available from LTS and non-superconducting Conventional Materials (CM), such as copper. In this review, we highlight important areas where HTS could perform better than CM or LTS. For example, HTS can replace CM in wind turbines and aeroplane motor-engines to improve power to weight ratios, in tokamak fusion reactors HTS might allow a sustainable positive power output. In medicine,  HTS may replace LTS for smaller Magnetic Resonance Imagining (MRI) machines. producing high resolution images, without using the scarce resource Helium. The primary barriers to deployment are, Alternating Current (AC) loss, Quench, Heat Losses, and Cost. Recent developments in HTS manufacture   have the potential to overcome these barriers This review sets out the problems the potential and (some of) the solutions
