Prof. Chung is a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering, a Fellow of IEEE, CSEE EIC, IET, HKIE, AAIA, and AIIA, and an IEEE PES Distinguished Lecturer. He is also the recipient of the 2021 IEEE Canada P. Ziogas Electric Power Award and 2021 Saskatoon Engineering Society (SES) Educator of the Year Award.

Title of Speech: Advanced Prediction Techniques Applied to Smart Grids With High Penetration of Renewables

Abstract: In 2015, countries around the world reached the Paris Agreement and began reducing emissions as soon as possible to deal with the increasingly prominent issue of climate change and achieve the goal of carbon neutrality. Many countries, including China and the USA, have proposed national strategies to strengthen power grids to facilitate major government initiatives, such as increasing the penetration of renewable energy and electrifying transportation and other industrial and commercial sectors. At the same time, power system industry is shifting towards a new digital era to better manage risks in volatile energy commodities, increase customer engagement, and enhance efficiency through grid optimization. Data analytics plays a vital role in this transformation and, therefore, different measurement architectures have been used and implemented to facilitate the data capturing process and supervisory control at the generation, transmission, and distribution levels. Based on the massive measurement data, advanced prediction techniques driven by artificial intelligence will bring revolutionary changes to the power industry. This speech will briefly introduce advanced prediction techniques and review the recent results on some smart grid challenges addressed by novel prediction techniques.

Title of Speech: Progress and Development Trend of Solar Photovoltaic Technology

Abstract: Solar photovoltaic power generation technology holds a crucial position in achieving the strategic goals of carbon peaking and carbon neutrality, and is central to creating a new power system centered around new energy sources. This technology encompasses significant advancements such as crystalline silicon solar cells, inorganic thin film solar cells, and emerging technologies like perovskites. Our team has been deeply involved in crystalline silicon and perovskite solar cells, as well as the application of flexible and tandem technology in space-related field. We have addressed the key issues in crystalline silicon solar cells, such as light absorption, carrier separation, and collection. We have improved surface and interface engineering, micro and nano manufacturing equipment technology, enhanced PERC technology to substitute BSF cells and focused on developing efficient and low-cost N-type crystalline silicon technology. Our investigations into perovskite solar cells focus on crystallization regulation and defect passivation to enhance device efficiency and stability through additives and interface engineering. The innovative approach to flexible device integrates material development, low-temperature preparation, and packaging technologies to enhance the efficiency and stability. In addition to ground photovoltaic applications, our team is also committed to the application of PSCs in the field of space, and carry out electron and proton irradiation aging tests. We successfully developed an ultra-thin metal-substrate flexible device with high power-to-mass ratio and robust mechanical properties, achieving commendable performance. Finally, we offer insights into the future development trajectory of solar photovoltaic power generation technology.
