The Purnomo Yusgiantoro Center participated in the Asia-Oceania Regional Council of CIGRE Technical Meeting and International Conference with the theme of Integration of Variable Renewable Energy Generation into Power Systems. There were two CIGRE tutorials and parallel paper presentation sessions on the third day (March 27, 2019) of the conference. The day ended with a gala dinner which provides all speakers and delegates a mesmerize closing ceremony of the conference.
The first tutorial was presented by Prof. Konstantin O. Papailiou on Quo Vadis Overhead Lines. He delivered how the overhead lines change over time. He highlighted the latest development on the overhead line to adapt with present and future interest in uprating or upgrading the line, increasing the current capacity, real monitoring, and enhance the existing overhead line.
The second tutorial addressed issues of the Impact of Battery Energy Storage Systems on Distribution. The presentation was delivered by Dr. Takenori Kobayashi. He pointed out the benefits and impact of the battery energy storage utilization in power network including balancing renewable resource, frequency regulation, peak shaving, and load shifting. He also shared Japan’s experience and practical issues of the installation of battery energy storage.
