2019 May – IEEE PES ISGT Asia, Chengdu

Gayan Abeynayake presented his paper ‘Reliability Evaluation of Voltage Source Converters for MVDC Applications’ at IEEE PES ISGT ASIA 2019.

He met PhD students, professors and industry experts, mainly from China and Australia. He had extensive discussions about Australian wind integration with Prof. Tapan Saha of the University of Queensland, and was interested to learn about Australia’s stronger focus on Solar PV development and battery storage.

Gayan found the technical visit to Sichuan Chengdian Dawei Science & Technology Co Ltd particularly useful. He watched a demonstration of a real time energy trading platform using blockchain concept, still in its research stage. And he enjoyed Chinese hot-pot and his trip to the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding!
