Climate 2015: digital technologies
Robert Plana, R&D University Relations Director, Alstom Holdings, will come on Monday, February 2, 2015, for the conference cycle on energy and environment organised at École Polytechnique to prepare the Paris Climate Conference 2015 (COP21).
"How Digital technologies will impact the future energy markets?" will be the topic of the conference given by the R&D University Relations Director of Alstom, Robert Plana, on Monday, January 19, 2015, at 4pm at École Polytechnique.
This presentation is part of the conference cycle on energy and environment organised by the Coriolis Institute to prepare the Paris Climate Conference 2015 (COP21) and the debates on energy transition. This is the 8th lecture taking place at École Polytechnique as part of this conference cycle which began in September 2014. The conference will be in English.
Presentation of the conference by Robert Plana:
The conference will start by briefly reminding the issues faced by the energy markets both in terms of technologies, climate change, business models and regulatory policies.
The presentation will be organized into three parts.
The first part will investigate the impact of digital technologies on Energy Generation Systems through:
> a better control and command approach, the implementation of the predictive maintenance paradigm to extend the life time of the future power plants and/or to increase their operation time
> the development of reconfigurable power plant
> the minimization of the cost using advanced manufacturing technologies and virtual prototyping paradigm
> a better coupling between hardware (power electronics) and software technologies and a co-design approach.
The second part will address the distribution of electrical energy and the benefits that could be expected by introducing more digital technologies. More precisely, it will be shown how software, algorithms, mathematical models could translate to a better use of the different technologies as well as a more stable electrical network.
Finally the third part will propose a new vision for advanced urban infrastructures using serious games, co-design and virtual reality for the design phase, big data analytics and visualization for the implementation.
Conference "How Digital technologies will impact the future energy markets?" - Monday February 2, 2015 at 4pm - Faurre Amphitheater.
Next conference on February, 11, 2015 at 4pm with Jean-François Soussana, Scientific Environment Director, INRA.
The Coriolis conferences are meant for everyone to understand without need of a huge scientific background. The conference lasts for about 45 minutes and is followed by questions with the spokesperson.
This conference is open to everyone: researchers from all fields, students, PhDs, post-docs, staff members, visitors.
