YD-EMSC Workshop ( ⻓三⻆能量管理系统联盟 2023 夏季研讨会)

The inaugural workshop of the Yangtze Delta Energy Management Systems Consortium (YD-EMSC), held on August 9-10, 2023, marked a significant milestone in the pursuit of cutting-edge technologies in Energy Management Systems (EMS) for Microgrids and Virtual Power Plants. It was sponsored by UM-SJTU JI and the Shanghai Association of Automation (SAA).

The Yangtze Delta Energy Management Systems Consortium (YD-EMSC) is a collaborative effort comprising five distinguished universities in the Yangtze Delta region: Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications (NJUPT), South East University (SEU), Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU), Zhejiang University (ZJU), and Zhejiang University of Technology (ZJUT).

Initiated by Professor Mo-Yuen Chow, an esteemed IEEE Fellow and faculty member at the University of Michigan-Shanghai Jiao Tong University Joint Institute (UM-SJTU JI), in April 2023, YD-EMSC brings together a network of experts dedicated to the advancement of energy management technologies.

At the inaugural workshop, the YD-EMSC highlighted key immediate research projects comprising, developing a Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiL) testbed for consortium theme demonstration and validations, creating a cyber-management-physical simulator and digital twin for the system and developing Smart Collaborative Distributed Energy Management Systems (S-CoDEMS) for disaster relief.

A Vision for a Resilient Energy Future:

YD-EMSC’s mission is to pioneer distributed and collaborative technologies for reconfigurable, reliable, scalable, and resilient energy management systems of evolving networked microgrids, particularly in contexts of disaster relief and emergent dynamic adhoc power systems.

With a total of twenty-eight dedicated faculty members, YD-EMSC is set to make significant strides in the field of energy management systems.

Looking ahead, the next YD-EMSC workshop is scheduled to take place in Nanjing, China, in the spring of 2024
