Despite the established potential, industrial involvement in ancillary service provision is infrequent in most parts of Europe and in most categories of ancillary services. Lack of knowledge is identified among the barriers to participation, both from industries and from system operators. <br />The aim of this study is to increase the utilization and facilitate the introduction of industrial resources in provision of ancillary services. The proposed strategy is to illustrate in what way different segments of industry can provide services. Further on the study propose the introduction of Ancillary Service Provision Methods. To facilitate the procedure of identifying potential processes or equipment that can be used to provide ancillary services. <br />The study confirms that the potential from industry to provide ancillary services is large. It have also been shown that industry can deliver ancillary services in a wide range of categories. Not only in Frequency Support but also in Voltage Support, System Restoration and Other Services. <br />The results show that the proposed strategy have a high potential of increasing the involvement of industry for provision of ancillary services. <br /><br /></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/e2/calendar/Pages/Tommy-Tram,-Electrical-Engineering.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/e2/calendar/Pages/Tommy-Tram,-Electrical-Engineering.aspxTommy Tram, Electrical Engineering<p>EC, lecture hall, Hörsalsvägen 11, EDIT trappa C, D och H</p><p>​Half-way PhD Seminar Title: Decision Making for Autonomous Driving in Intersections Using Reinforcement Learning</p><div>​Tommy Tram is an Industrial PhD student at the Division of Systems and Control</div> <div>Examiner is Professor Jonas Sjöberg<br /></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/e2/calendar/Pages/Promotion-lecture-by-Massimo-Bongiorno.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/e2/calendar/Pages/Promotion-lecture-by-Massimo-Bongiorno.aspxChallenges and opportunities in power electronics dominated grids<p>EA, lecture hall, Hörsalsvägen 11, EDIT staircase C, D och H</p><p>​Promotion lecture for Full Professor by Massimo Bongiorno, Division of Electric Power Engineering</p><h2 class="chalmersElement-H2">​Abstract of talk</h2> <p>Europe, together with substantial parts of the world, is constantly and increasingly moving towards generating electricity from renewable energy sources (RES), and some future European energy scenarios even foresee a RES penetration close to 100% by 2050. RES are predominantly connected to the power system through power-electronic converters; in addition, power-electronic interfaces are added on the demand side (for example, smart loads, motor drive systems, industrial processes and charging systems for electric vehicles), and at the transmission level (flexible ac transmission systems, FACTS, and high-voltage direct current, HVDC, systems). For this reason, it is not unrealistic to consider that the future power systems will be dominated by power electronics at all different power and voltage levels. </p> <p>The aim of this lecture is to highlight the main challenges that can be foreseen in the future power-electronic dominated grid, to discuss some of the latest developments and to indicate the opportunities that this kind of grids can offer.</p>https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/e2/calendar/Pages/EM-lab-seminar-Aron-Szucs.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/e2/calendar/Pages/EM-lab-seminar-Aron-Szucs.aspxCoupled Numerical Field Computation in the Multi-Physics and System Analysis of Electrical Machines<p>EDIT room (3364), Hörsalsvägen 11, Campus Johanneberg</p><p>​Welcome to a seminar arranged by the Electromagnetics Laboratory (abbreviated EM-Lab), which is an assembly of senior researchers and teachers with activities in the scientific field of electromagnetics.

Similarly while the numerical electromagnetic field computation of electrical machines has several decades of history, new technical demands and industrial competition has led to the rise of new perspectives in computation methods. These include the more comprehensive views of electrical machine design involving multi-physics and system analysis.</span><br /></div> <div>The lecture reviews the numerical coupling / interfacing techniques for, and the similarities and differences in Multi-physics and System analysis. The example cases will range from drive system analysis, through traditional electromagnetic-thermal coupling, to issues with experimental diamond based insulation systems. </div> <div>Finally future development directions and upcoming research topics will be discussed, to encourage academic research in the directions of uncertainty quantification and efficient digital twin model development.</div> <div><br /></div> <div><strong>Biography:</strong> <br />Áron Szűcs is a Principal R&amp;D Engineer in ABB Motors and Generators, Technology Center, Helsinki, Finland and an Associate Professor at the University of Pécs, Hungary. He graduated as an electrical engineer MSc. from the Technical University of Budapest in 1995. He wrote his MSc thesis at the Helsinki University of Technology from where he later got his PhD (D.Sc. Tech) in 2002. He works and publishes on the field of advanced design and simulation methods for the electromagnetic modeling of electrical machines, design optimization of electrical machines, e.g.: Induction machines and wind generators. Next to his academic publications he holds several patents on the field of electrical machines. He has been active in international scientific and industrial societies including Compumag, EPNC, Cigre, etc. Lately he developed an obsession with diamonds, but not because they are forever, but because they are the best solid thermal conductors and excellent electrical insulators. More about that in the presentation... He firmly believes that efficient and successful work in either industrial or academic research and technology development must entail a close cooperation between these worlds.</div> <div><br /></div> <div><a href="/en/departments/e2/network/em-lab/Pages/default.aspx"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/ichtm.gif" alt="" />Read more about the Electromagnetics Laboratory​​​​​​​​​​​</a></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/e2/calendar/Pages/WiSE-workshop-on-gender-biases.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/e2/calendar/Pages/WiSE-workshop-on-gender-biases.aspxWiSE workshop on gender biases<p>SB-L200, Sven Hultins Gata 6, Campus Johanneberg</p><p>​&quot;I’ve never experienced gender as a problem</p><div><br /></div> Welcome to a WiSE workshop with Nanna Gillberg, researcher and author engaged in equality, digitalisation and medialisation. The workshop aims to uncover the history and contemporary expressions of our unconscious gender biases to show how biases and their effects can be eradicated.  ​​​<div><br /><div><span style="background-color:initial">While all formal barriers to gender equality have been eliminated, it is expected to take another 185 years to achieve gender equality in Sweden. The delay is due to the informal gender organising mechanisms that still prevail. These are found in our minds in the form of notions of what it means to be a woman and a man, as well as built into our societal structures. Generally, we are not aware of the notions on gender that we carry around and which are also embedded in society’s division of labour, responsibility, power, and resources. Ingrained in our culture and our structures, they have become invisible and are taken for granted. In spite of their invisible status, the informal mechanisms make their mark in practice in a number of ways. Both men and women for example are more prone to relating to and identifying with men than women and find it easier to see competence and authority in men. Men’s approval carries more weight than that of women. This workshop uncovers the history and contemporary expressions of our unconscious gender biases to show how biases and their effects can be eradicated.</span><div> </div> <div><strong>Nanna Gillberg</strong> (<a href="http://www.nanna-gillberg.com/">www.nanna-gillberg.com​</a>) is a researcher at Gillberg Neuropsychiatric Center at the Sahlgenska Accademy and at the Gothenburg Research Institute at the School of Business, Economics and Law, University of Gothenburg.

For a conventional alternating current (AC) distribution system this requires the need for multiple conversion steps before the final user-stage. By switching the distribution system to DC, conversion steps between AC to DC can be avoided and, in that way, losses are reduced. Including a battery storage–the system’s losses can be reduced further and the generated PV energy is even better utilised.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>This thesis investigates and quantifies the energy savings when using a direct current distribution topology in a residential building together with distributed energy generation from solar photovoltaic and a battery storage. Measured load and PV generation data for a single-family house situated in Borås, Sweden is used as a case study for the analysis. Detailed and dynamic models–based on laboratory measurements of the power electronic converters and the battery–are also used to more accurately reflect the system’s dynamic performance.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>In this study a dynamic representation of the battery’s losses is presented which is based on laboratory measurements of the resistance and current dependency for a single lithium-ion cell based on Lithium iron phosphate (LFP). A comparative study is made with two others, commonly used, loss representations and evaluated with regards to the complete system’s performance, using the PV and load data from the single-family house. Results show that a detailed battery representation is important for a correct loss prediction when modelling the interaction between loads, PV and the battery.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>Four DC system topologies are also modelled and compared to an equivalent AC topology using the experimental findings from the power electronic converters and the battery measurements. Results from the quasi-dynamic modelling show that the annual energy savings potential from the suggested DC topologies ranges between 1.9–5.6%. The DC topologies also increase the PV utilisation by up to 10 percentage points, by reducing the associated losses from the inverter and the battery conversion. Results also show that the grid-tied converter is the main loss contributor and when a constant grid-tied efficiency is used, the energy savings are overestimated.</div></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/e2/calendar/Pages/EM-lab-seminar-Farhad-Rachidi.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/e2/calendar/Pages/EM-lab-seminar-Farhad-Rachidi.aspxElectromagnetic Time Reversal<p>EDIT room (3364), Hörsalsvägen 11, Campus Johanneberg</p><p>​Welcome to a seminar arranged by the Electromagnetics Laboratory (abbreviated EM-Lab), which is an assembly of senior researchers and teachers with activities in the scientific field of electromagnetics.

Typically, coupling impedances are calculated via time domain simulations by computing first the wake potential of a particle bunch and then transforming it to the frequency domain. However, for specific classes of problems the time domain approach becomes numerically cumbersome. This is the case when, the low frequency impedance corresponding to the long range wakefields is required. Also, the calculation of resistive wall impedances and the simulation of beams moving along curved trajectories cannot be properly handled in the time domain. We will discuss a finite element framework for impedance calculations directly in the frequency domain. The method is based on the discretization of Maxwell equations using mixed finite element meshes and high order hierarchic approximation spaces. This includes a concatenation scheme based on a generalized S-Matrix formulation including the beam-cavity coupling. Application examples demonstrating the feasibility of this approach for very large accelerator structures will be presented.</span></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial"><br /></span></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial"><strong>B</strong></span><span style="background-color:initial"><strong>iography:</strong></span><br /></div> <div><div>Actual position: Privatdozent / Associated Professor at the Institute for Accelerator Science and Electromagnetic Fields</div> <div>2008: Habilitation at the TU Darmstadt (with Thomas Weiland)</div> <div>Since 2001: Research Group Leader: ”Coupled Problems and Multiphysics”, TU Darmstadt, Germany</div> <div>2000-2001: CST of America Inc., Boston, MA, USA</div> <div>1999: Postdoc at the TU Darmstadt, Germany</div> <div>1998: PhD in theoretical physics, University of Siegen, Germany</div> <div>1994: Graduation in theoretical physics, University of Tirana, Albania</div></div> <div><br /></div> <div><a href="/en/departments/e2/network/em-lab/Pages/default.aspx"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/ichtm.gif" alt="" />Read more about the Electromagnetics Laboratory​​​​​​​​​​​​</a></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/areas-of-advance/production/calendar/Pages/Production-in-space.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/areas-of-advance/production/calendar/Pages/Production-in-space.aspxProduction in space<p>RunAn, conference hall, Chalmersplatsen 1, Kårhuset</p><p>​The new space age is here! We address this year&#39;s initiative seminar, to space and production, following in the steps of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.</p><div><div><br /></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial">The curiosity to find life on other planets has been a strong driver of space research.
