Udaya K. Madawala教授简介:

Udaya K. Madawala graduated with a B.Sc. (Electrical Engineering) (Hons) degree from The University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka in 1987, and received his PhD (Power Electronics) from The University of Auckland, New Zealand in 1993 as a Commonwealth Doctoral Scholar. At the completion of his PhD, he was employed by Fisher & Paykel Ltd, New Zealand, as a Research and Development Engineer to develop new technologies for motor drives. In 1997, he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Auckland as a Research Fellow. At present, as a Full Professor, he focuses on a number of power electronics projects related to wireless grid integration of EVs for V2G applications and renewable energy.

Udaya is a Fellow of the IEEE and a Distinguished Lecturer of IEEE Power Electronics Society, and has over 30 years of both industry and research experience in the fields of power electronics and energy. He has served both the IEEE Power Electronics and Industrial Electronics Societies in numerous roles, relating to conferences, technical committees and chapter activities. Currently, Udaya is an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics and IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics, and a member of the Sustainable Energy Systems Technical Committee and the Oceania Liaison Chair of Membership Development Committee of the IEEE Power Electronics Society. He was the General Chair of the 2nd IEEE Southern Power Electronics Conference (SPEC), held in New Zealand in 2016, and is also a member of the SPEC Steering Committee. Udaya has over 250 IEEE and IET journal and international conference publications, and holds a number of patents related to wireless power transfer and power converters. He is a keynote, plenary and tutorial speaker, and offers his service to industry as a consultant.

 

讲座简介:

讲座一:Grid Interfacing Technologies for Renewables and EVs

Renewable Energy (RE) sources, energy storage systems and Electric Vehicles (EVs) can be considered as partial solutions to the global energy crisis as well as for sustainable living. An indispensable component of all these solutions is the power interface that facilitates either uni- or bi-directional power flow between the grid and EV/RE. An efficient, compact and reliable power interface is, therefore, vital for grid integration of both EVs and REs. For this reason, grid integration of EVs and REs and its impact on the grid have become a focus of current research in both industrial and academic communities.

This seminar provides an overview of The University of Auckland in New Zealand, and is followed by a presentation on the speaker’s current research which is based on a green energy system that is capable of integrating multiple RE sources and EVs to the power network (grid) or/and households. Inductive Power Transfer (IPT) technology, widely used for wireless grid integration of EVs, is discussed at fundamental level, covering both uni- and bi-directional power flows as well as compensation strategies. Collaborative research opportunities are highlighted, discussing the latest advances in grid integration of EVs as well as its current challenges and future directions.

讲座二:Wireless Grid Integration of EVs for V2G Applications

Electric vehicles (EVs) are gaining global acceptance as the means of future transport for sustainable living and as an alternative energy storage to stabilize the electricity network through the vehicle-to-grid (V2G) concept. For V2G applications, EVs essentially require a bi-directional power interface with the electricity network (grid) to allow for both storing (charging) and retrieval (discharging) of energy. This can be achieved by both wired and wireless means, but the latter, based primarily on Inductive Power Transfer (IPT) technology, is becoming more popular, being convenient, safe, and ideal for both stationary and dynamic (while on the move) charging of EVs. This seminar presents trends and the latest advances in grid integration of EVs and its impact on the power grid and infrastructure, focusing particularly on the bi-directional wireless power transfer (BD-WPT) technology developed for V2G applications. Challenges related to safety, type of integration, charging time, efficiency, cost and standards etc are discussed. The latest advances in relation to both stationary and dynamic wireless charging are presented, highlighting the solutions proposed to mitigate the problems associated with pad-misalignment, synchronization and pulse charging.

讲座三:Grid Interfacing Technologies for Renewables and EVs

Technical writing is an art. The findings of an excellent research project, not presented in a clear, concise and logical manner, are unlikely to be accepted for either journal or conference publication. As a consequence, such valuable findings will simply go un-noticed, not making a contribution to the field. In contrast, the findings of a modest research project may easily be accepted for journal publication if they are well presented, and will have the opportunity of gaining more recognition and publicity. Therefore, it is vital to write a scholarly article in a convincing manner that the reader can clearly understand both the importance of and motivation for your research as well as its contribution in comparison to reported solutions. This seminar provides a guide to technical writing with the emphasis on structure, objectives, content, format, details, conciseness, clarity and flow etc.

 

Each of the lectures will have a duration of approximately 100 minutes followed by 20 minutes for questions and discussions.
