TitleTowards Resilient Power Systems: How ready are we?

Abstract: Power systems are being increasingly exposed to extreme weather and natural hazards with catastrophic consequences on modern societies, revealing at the same time significant challenges and limitations in current network planning and operation standards in providing hedge against such events. This has placed resilience in the spotlight of system operators, planners and decision-making bodies around the world. In this context, this seminar will share experiences and applications from relevant national and international research projects in the area of resilient power systems planning and operation. It will cover conceptual frameworks for better understanding the multi-faceted concept of resilience and how this can be explicitly embedded in novel resilience assessment and cascading analysis tools as well as risk-based planning approaches to support the decision-making on resilient investment portfolios. It will also provide updates on ongoing works by relevant IEEE and CIGRE working groups on the topic of power system resilience.

BiographyMathaios Panteli received the M.Eng. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Thessaloniki, Greece, in 2009, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical power engineering from The University of Manchester, Manchester, U.K., in 2013. He is currently an Assistant Professor with the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, University of Cyprus. His main research interests include techno-economic reliability, resilience and flexibility assessment of future low-carbon energy systems, grid integration of renewable energy sources and integrated modelling and analysis of co-dependent critical infrastructures, in which areas he has successfully developed a multi-million research portfolio, attracting funding from research councils, industry, and European Commission. Mathaios is an IEEE Senior Member, an IET Chartered Engineer (CEng), the Chair of the CIGRE Working Group C4.47 “Power System Resilience” and an active member of multiple IEEE working groups. He is also the recipient of the prestigious 2018 Newton Prize.
