The third technical visit of the 2019/2020 autumn semester was held on the 6th of November 2019. We visited Hungary’s largest coal-fired power plant. This visit was organized by the Student Association of Energy, in order to familiarize newly admitted students with basic power plant technologies. The visit consisted of two parts, a two-hour lecture at the visitor center and a short guided tour by a small train.
On the 14th of February, 2019, the IEEE BUTE Jt IAS/PES SBC organized the first lecture of the Kálmán Kandó memorial semester. During the event, the participants could hear from Zoltán Hajdú-Benkő, Head of the Network Innovation Department of the National Public Utilities, about the impact of PV systems on the network and the plans for dealing with these effects.

As the first event of the József Stoczek Memorial Semester, the Student Association of Energy organized a site visit to the Budapest Waste-to-Energy Plant, called Fővárosi Hulladékhasznosító Mű in Hungarian which is owned by the FKF Nonprofit Zrt. Continue reading Budapest Waste-to-Energy Plant
Australia has one of the highest proportions of households with PV solar systems installed in the world. With relatively high retail electricity prices, comparatively low feed-in tariff rates for exported PV energy generation and the rapid reduction in energy storage costs, the market for behind-the-meter battery systems has the potential to increase dramatically.
Frequency Response Analysis (FRA) is now universally accepted technique to detect Power Transformer winding radial and axial movement, core deformation and other types of faults.
IEEE Industry Applications Society (IAS), together with IAS Deakin chapter organized a site visit to Wilson Transformer. The tour covered all operational workshops in the factory and demonstrated the available facilities. There was also a presentation about the transformer basics to help attendees have a better idea about the transformer components.
In recent years, the increased renewable energy generation penetration in the Australian electrical grid has created many challenges for the system operator. Among many is the frequency stability of power systems and the necessary inertia.
