SPEAKER: Dr. Nelson Martins, Electrical Energy Research Center, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
TOPIC: Linear Techniques for Solving Practical Power System Problems
DATE: Friday, June 22, 2018
TIME: 11:00a.m. - 12:00p.m.
LOCATION: EIT 3142
INVITED BY: Claudio Canizares
This 3-part talk, of one-hour duration, will provide an overview on several methods developed by Dr. Martins and colleagues to solve some problems in power system dynamics and control. The titles for the three topics to be discussed are given below:
- PSS Phase Shaping Design
- EMT Equivalents for Transmission Networks Containing Distributed Parameter Lines
- Numerical Linear Algebra Algorithms for Solving Control Design Problems in Large-Scale Power System Models
A list of references related to these topics will be provided.
Nelson Martins, BSc. (1972), PhD. (1978), in Electrical Engineering, works at CEPEL (Brazilian Electrical Energy Research Center). Committee activities: IEEE-PES Power System Dynamic Performance and CIGRE SC-C2, SC-C4 and SC-B4. His main areas of interest: small-signal stability, large-scale eigenvalue methods, PSS, FACTS, HVDC controller design, power system harmonics, model order reduction, blackouts and system restoration. He co-authored 52 journal papers (IEEE-TPWRS, IEEE-TPWRD, IET-GTD, SIAM-SISC and Linear Algebra and Applications), plus conference papers and a book chapter, having an h-index 21. Past-chair of CIGRE taskforces 38.02.16 and C4.602, editor of "Interaction among Power System Controls" (CIGRE Brochure-166, August 2000) and "Coordinated Voltage Control in Transmission Networks" (CIGRE Brochure-310, February 2007), received “CIGRE Technical Committee Award” (2007). He co-supervised 30 graduate students, delivered talks and brief courses on power system dynamics in 20 countries, receiving IEEE/PES and CIGRE awards for outstanding papers and reports. In 2010 he received the Presidential Award for Scientific Merit by the Brazilian Ministry of Science and Technology. In 2015 he was elected member of the US and Brazilian national academies of engineering and received the 2015 IEEE PES Prabha Kundur Power System Dynamics and Control Award.
