Under the “dual carbon” goal, accelerating the construction of a new power system with new energy as the main body has become the focus of power electronics and power system-related industry, academia, and research circles. From August 19th to 21st, the “2022 Delta Power Electronics New Technology Seminar” hosted by Delta and undertaken by Harbin Institute of Technology was held in Wujiang, Suzhou. Up to Power Electronics New Power System Summit Forum”, invited experts, scholars, teachers and students in the fields of power electronics and power systems to have in-depth exchanges. Delta’s founder and honorary chairman Mr. Cheng Chonghua announced at the meeting that on the basis of the two plans for power electronics science and education, the “Special Fund for New Power Systems for Power Electronics” will be added from 2023, and on the basis of the original 10 cooperative schools, increase 2 famous universities in the field of power system – North China Electric Power University and Hunan University, cultivate interdisciplinary talents to engage in related scientific research work. Professor Xu Dianguo from Harbin Institute of Technology presided over the meeting and made an annual report of the Implementation Committee of Delta’s Power Electronics Science and Education Development Plan, announcing 15 scientific research projects funded by the “Science and Education Plan” in 2022. Professor Chen Chen of Shanghai Jiaotong University delivered an annual work report on behalf of the Delta Scholars Program Implementation Committee, announcing that in 2022, Professor Zeng Rong of Tsinghua University won the honorary title of “Zhongda Scholar”, Associate Professor Zhao Biao of Tsinghua University and Professor Wang Yijie of Harbin Institute of Technology won the “Zhongda Scholar” Young Scholar Award”, and jointly presented the award-winning scholar award certificate with Mr. Tan Yizhong, general manager of Delta-Zhongda Dentsu. A total of 61 graduate students from ten universities including Tsinghua University were awarded scholarships this year.
Professor Li Zeyuan, a foreign academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and director of the two programs of science and education, said that under the promotion of the “dual carbon” policy, everyone pays more attention to the application of energy conservation, emission reduction and renewable energy, and the importance of power electronics is also more prominent. With the joint efforts of the majority of power electronics teachers and students, the development of China’s power electronics has occupied a pivotal position on the international stage. In the form of traditional power grids in the past, there was less cooperation between power electronics disciplines and power grids, but under the guidance of the “double standard” goal, there will be an increasing proportion of renewable energy in the new power system, and there will be more power electronics Facility participates in smart grid construction. In this context, Delta’s addition of the “New Power System Special Project for Power Electronics” is very forward-looking. It is hoped that the teachers and students present will work together to continue to develop in the discipline of power electronics and make more outstanding contributions to the new power system in the future. Help China to step into the international frontier in the field of smart grid.
Cheng Chonghua, founder and honorary chairman of Delta, said that the climate crisis is getting worse and worse, and energy transition is one of the keys to addressing the global energy and climate crisis. To accelerate the low-carbon transformation of energy, it is necessary to build a new power system with new energy as the main body, and the power system has widely used power electronic devices from power generation, transmission to power consumption. Therefore, promoting the integrated development of power electronics and power systems can not only promote the progress of related industries and science and technology, but also contribute to the mitigation and adaptation of climate change. In order to make the technology research and development of power electronics develop in a direction that makes more contributions to mankind, with the proposal of Professor Li Zeyuan and the support of the teachers of the two committees, Delta is willing to increase its support and set up the “New Power System Special Project for Power Electronics”. Encourage interdisciplinary talent training and technological innovation, promote industrial progress, achieve scientific research results with trans-epoch significance, and help achieve the dual-carbon goal.
In 2015, Zhongda Scholars and Academician Luo An of Hunan University delivered a speech on behalf of all teachers and students of Delta’s “Two Plans for Science and Education”. , cultivate a group of practical scientific and technological talents and backbone, and promote the vigorous development of China’s power electronics disciplines. This year, the research direction of power electronic system was added to keep up with the times, because building a new power system with new energy as the main body is an important way to promote clean and low-carbon transformation of energy and contribute to the dual-carbon goal, and a more resilient new type of power system becomes urgently needed. Therefore, the establishment of this research direction is high, timely and necessary.
The “Delta Power Electronics New Power System Summit Forum” was held for the first time during the seminar. Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, Professor Han Yingduo of the Department of Electrical Engineering of Tsinghua University, Professor Bi Tianshu, Vice President of North China Electric Power University, and Professor Xu Zheng of Zhejiang University were invited to discuss the new power system. Sharing and in-depth exchanges with the participants. Experts agreed that the power electronic power system needs to strengthen multi-disciplinary and multi-industry collaboration, overcome the scientific problems and technical challenges behind the new power electronic power system, ensure the security of energy supply, assist the construction of the new power system, and realize my country’s energy structure. Clean and low-carbon transition.
Professor Zeng Rong, who was awarded the title of “Zhongda Scholar” in 2022, developed IGCT-plus devices with 10,000-ampere breaking capacity, 535kV DC circuit breakers with high voltage and current levels and strong breaking capacity, and took the lead in developing a wide range of series It has been applied in major projects such as Zhangbei flexible DC power grid, Dongguan AC-DC hybrid distribution network, Zhuhai three-terminal flexible direct distribution network, etc., to ensure the safe and reliable operation of the power grid.
In addition, Delta also held a “Dream Building Lecture” to provide students with suggestions on the direction of scientific research development and employment; and a “Set Sail” symposium, allowing senior experts and professors to communicate with young teachers closely; at the same time, 8K video viewing was arranged. The event showcased the 8K films “Coral Reef Fish” and “Swimming with Whales”, which were produced by Delta and won the Gold Award for Medium and Long-form Documentary at this year’s “Houston International Film Festival” and the Gold Award for Short Documentary at this year’s “Houston International Film Festival”. The images and close-up viewing angles lead the audience to go deep into the colorful blue underwater world and experience the marine ecosystem with rich biodiversity.
Industry-university-research guests from all over the country actively participated in seminars and summit forums through video connection and offline communication. Li Zeyuan, a foreign academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and director of the Science and Education Program, and Han Yingduo, an academician of Tsinghua University, participated in the seminar via video link. Guests at the Tongli venue were: Academician Luo An of Hunan University, Liao Zheyan, Director of Human Resources of Delta China, and Delta Zhang Jinfa, director of the Shanghai and Hangzhou Design Center; guests at the Taipei venue include: Ke Zixing, vice chairman of Delta, Zhang Xunhai, chief operating officer of Delta, and Guo Shanshan, director of Delta brand.
