Session Overview
T_Fr_D_Room5: EMI and power quality issues in Smart Cities and Transportation Systems (III)
Friday, 06/Sep/2019:
4:00pm - 6:00pm

Session Chair: Flavia Grassi
Session Chair: Petre-Marian Nicolae
Location: Room 5

Session Abstract

The global vision of Smart and Sustainable Cities is greatly restricted by the rapid increase of interference and interoperability problems, which occur through the interaction of electrical power with information technology and communications equipment. This tutorial aims at surveying technical challenges and recent findings in modelling, measurement, and mitigation of electromagnetic interference in modern power distribution networks in the Smart Grid context,  including transportation systems. Related discussion includes the definition of proper emission limits in the related frequency range, adequate immunity of equipment to low-frequency disturbance, effective filter-design strategies, ad hoc measurement techniques and instrumentation, numerical modeling and statistical techniques.
