Em 03 de março, a palestra “Eletrônica de Potência para Sistemas de Potência” foi ministrada por Jian Sun, professor do Rensselaer Polytechnic Institut (Estados Unidos) e Fellow member IEEE. A palestra foi patrocinada pela Power Electronics Society pelo Distinguished Lecturers Program.
Foi uma ótima oportunidade de conhecer como a eletrônica de potência é inserida nos sistemas de potência, assim como os principais desafios a serem enfrentados.
Dr. Jian Sun joined the faculty at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in 2002, where he is currently a Professor in the Department of Electrical, Computer and Systems Engineering. He is also Director of the Center for Future Energy Systems (CFES) funded by New York State government. His research interests are in the general area of power electronics and energy conversion, with an emphasis on modeling, control, and different applications including renewable energy, power systems and aerospace. Dr. Sun received his Dr.-Ing. degree from the University of Paderborn in Germany. Prior to joining RPI, he spent five years at the Advanced Technology Center of Rockwell Collins working on power electronics for aircraft power systems, and was a Post-Doc Fellow at Georgia Tech from 1996 to 1997. His professional services to the power electronics community included serving as Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Power Electronics Letters from 2008 to 2014 and as Treasurer of IEEE Power Electronics Society since 2013. Dr. Sun received the IEEE PELS Modeling and Control Technical Achievements Award in 2013 and the R. David Middlebrook Outstanding Achievement Award in 2017. He is a Fellow of IEEE.
