Séminaire, Pr Jiaxin YUAN (Chine), 6 Déc. 2018

Le jeudi 06 Décembre, le Pr. Jiaxin YUAN de l’Université de Wuhan en Chine effectuera un exposé à l’amphi 1A06 de l’IUT à 10:30 sur le thème :

The Present Status and Future of Fault Current Limiter in High Voltage Power System

Date : Jeudi 6 décembre 2018, 10h30
Lieu : IUT An amphi 1A06


The first part of the presentation gives some brief introduction to Wuhan University, as well as the Department of Electrical Engineering and Automation.
The second part will introduce the Present Status and Future of Fault Current Limiter in High Voltage Power System. Nowadays, the short circuit fault current is increasing rapidly in all of the world. The short circuit fault current in some grid exceeds the capacity of the breaker which seriously threates the safety and stability of the power grid. The presentation will explain the principle of rapid increase in the short circuit current and analysis the different methods to reduce the short circuit current. Finally, the presentation will propose a novel fault current limiter.

Jiaxin Yuan (M’07) was born in Nanchang, China, on June 10, 1981. He received the B.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the School of Electrical Engineering, Wuhan University, Wuhan, China, in 2002 and 2007, respectively. From 2007 to 2009, he was a Lecturer with Wuhan University, where he was engaged in research and development of STATCOM and DSP inverter control and, since 2007, he has been engaged in power electronics system control, power quality issues, and application and control of inverters. From 2016, he got the full Professor position at the School of Electrical Engineering, Wuhan University.
