IEEE EnergyCon ‘16

The IEEE International Energy Conference 2016 was held in Leuven (Belgium) between April 4th-8th. The conference received more than 350 participants from 67 nationalities. EnergyCon 2016 covered a wide spread of topics related to power systems in the transmission and distribution level, in markets or ICT integration and in the energy conversion. A total of 280 papers were spread over 48 sessions. The conference participants could also attend four tutorials and six panel sessions. Two keynote sessions were  given: one by Prof. Goran Strbac (Imperial College London) and one by Jos Delbeke (Director-General of the European Commission’s DG Climate Action). Tutorials dealt with completely different subjects such as high-frequency harmonics, modelling of multi- energy systems, implementation of state estimation in power systems and the co-simulation of cyber-physical systems. Panel sessions were also about a variety of topics such as considering uncertainty in power systems, experiences after one year of flow-based  market coupling or strategies for incorporating flexibility.

IEEE Regional Exemplary Student Branch Award

The IEEE Student Branch of Eindhoven University of Technology has received a prestigious award.

It was handed over at the IEEE Region 8 meeting in Ljubljana (Slovenia). The award was presented by C. Stasopoulos, director of Region 8 for an "Exemplary Performance as a Student Branch during the 2014-2015 Academic Year". Considering the large geographical size of Region 8 (including Europe, Africa and parts of Asia including Russia), this is an immense accomplishment for the Eindhoven IEEE Student Branch.

In the picture the representatives of the IEEE Student Branch and the Chairman of the IEEE Section Benelux, Prof. A.B. Smolders. More

Benelux Section improves relation with industry by signing MoU with KIVI

In order to improve the relation with industry in the Netherlands, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the IEEE Benelux section and the Royal Netherlands Society of Engineers (KIVI) was signed. With 20,000 members, KIVI is the largest engineering society in the Netherlands. Traditionally, KIVI activities are organized by active members from industry, whereas most of the IEEE activities have been focusing mainly on the academic community in the past years. The MoU was signed during a joint IEEE/KIVI symposium on “Management challenges of the internet of things” by the executive director of the KIVI, Micaela dos Ramos (left), and Bart Smolders (right), chair of the IEEE Benelux section. The main objective of the MoU is to organize joint activities which are of interest for KIVI and IEEE members in the domain of Electrical Engineering. The MoU fits well with the ‘IEEE Action for Industry’. By engaging with the KIVI, the Benelux section expects to bridge the gap towards members from industry. In addition, we expect to attract new members from industry.
