He also gave more than 20 Keynotes and Invited talks in international conferences and Universities.
The alternating current (AC) power systems, which are the dominant power supply medium since 1891, have been developed and expanded at a tremendous speed from the initial small isolated networks each supplying only lighting and motor loads with a few hundreds of customers, to its current scale of super interconnected networks each supplying billions of customers over large geographic areas across one or several countries with over thousand GW.However, it does not mean that the direct current (DC) system should be abandoned. What has happened in the past 50 years such as development and applications of advanced power electronics and control technologies, the evolution of power system loads, and integration of renewable generation in power grid, really calls for a rethink about DC and AC in electricity supply systems.
In this talk, the changes occurred in power systems over last 20 years will be summarized. A novel power network architecture hybrid AC/DC and its advantages will be presented. The new challenges and issues for control, operation, and protection of the hybrid grid will be discussed. Some research achievements in Nanyang Technological University will be presented.
