Talk Title: Future Power System Control Functions: An Industry Perspective
Abstract: This talk provides an overview of Siemens Corporate Technology's recent research on new control functions for future power systems. Three different topics are discussed: (a) adaptive power oscillation damping optimization to increase the stability reserve of power systems, (b) robust power flow optimization to increase power system resilience to volatile generation, and (c) autonomous microgrids that provide autonomous operation and plug-and-produce capabilities.
Biography: Ulrich Muenz is head of the Research Group Autonomous Systems and Control at Siemens Corporate Technology in Princeton, NJ. Prior to this appointment, he was a senior key expert research scientist for power system stability and control at Siemens Corporate Technology in Munich, Germany. He received his Ph.D. degree in Automatic Control from the University of Stuttgart, Germany in 2010, and MSc degrees in Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications from the Universities of Stuttgart, Germany, and Madrid, Spain, both in 2005. He received the EECI European Ph.D. Award on Embedded and Networked Control in 2010. From 2010 to 2011, he was a systems engineer at Robert Bosch GmbH. His main research interests are autonomy technologies based on model- and data-driven methods for applications like power systems and industrial manufacturing.
