 +**Seminar:** Reducing Network Investment through Demand Management and Energy Conservation
 +
 +**Speaker: Mr. Terry McConnell**, Business and Industry Relationship Manager, ENERGEX
 +
 +**Abstract:**  Rapid growth in electricity consumption, peak demand and CO2 emissions can be attributed to Queenslands strong economic growth. This is led by the mining industry boom coupled with high population growth and consumer appetite for energy intensive appliances such as air conditioners, computers and large size televisions (and the number of these appliances per household). The combination of these factors has resulted in an increase in electricity consumption and an even larger increase in peak demand with a significant impact electricity prices due to the resultant requirement for network augmentation. This augmentation alone is an unsustainable way to reduce peak demand. This presentation will describe the challenges faced by ENERGEX as a distributor in South East Queensland and will outline the approach taken to combat or "Bend the Forward Demand Curve".
 +
 +**Biography:** Terry has over 30 years of experience at a local, national and international level. He has specialised in the areas of energy reduction and product optimisation to the commercial and industrial markets. Joining ENERGEX in 1998 as a result of their acquisition of Allgas Energy, Terry headed up the Commercial arm of ENERGEX Retail in the emerging national deregulated energy market.Some five years ago Terry took over as Group Manager Energy Efficiency within the non regulated arm of ENERGEX and in 2009 joined the Network Performance division specifically working in the area of Network Demand and Risk Management. This group is responsible for implementing a number of energy conservation and demand management strategies and programs to reduce future energy consumption and demand in South East Queensland. Terry sits on the Clean Energy Council Energy Efficiency Directorate and is also a member of the Queensland Governments Energy Management Centre reference group.

 +**Seminar:** Powerlink Queensland's 2012 Annual Planning Report
 +
 +**Speaker: Terry Miller**,BE(Elec), RPEQ - Manager Network Development, Powerlink Queensland
 +
 +**Abstract:** Powerlink’s 2012 Annual Planning Report provides information about the outlook for the electricity transmission network in Queensland including the State’s forecast electricity requirements and details of network limitations that are expected to emerge in future years. Forward planning and rigorous analysis of the power system is essential to ensure that any necessary augmentations to the State’s electricity transmission network are identified, approved and implemented in a timely manner so that reliability standards are maintained at the lowest long run cost to customers. The analysis identifies opportunities for non-network solutions, including demand side management, as alternatives to investment in transmission infrastructure and provides generators and major energy users with information to assist them in their decision making. Details of development of the transmission network, and potential development needs in future to meet Queensland’s growing electricity demand are also provided.
 +
 +**Biography:** As Manager Network Development with Powerlink Queensland, Terry is responsible for planning Powerlink’s future network investments and timely acquisition of transmission easements to meet future development needs. Planning for future investments includes forecasting future network demand, analysing network capabilities into the future, and recommending augmentation investment options to ensure continued reliable network performance. Terry represented the Queensland jurisdictional planning body on the Inter Regional Planning Committee of the National Electricity Market through to the 30 June 2009. With around 40 years experience in the Queensland electricity industry, Terry’s career has included experience in strategic business development, asset management, network planning, regulatory affairs, customer management, substation design, and distribution network design.

 +** Seminar:** Suboptimal model based engine control and calibration
 +
 +**Speaker: Associate Professor Chris Manzie**, Department of Mechanical Engineering, The University of Melbourne
 +
 +**Abstract:** In this talk  will summarise some of the recent work our group has performed in engine and aftertreatment modelling and frameworks for model reduction. I will then focus on two key examples that demonstrate that relatively simple physics-based models can be effectively used with model based control and optimisation approaches to deliver close to optimal results in engine control and calibration. The first example considers model predictive control of a hydrogen internal combustion engine at idle to deliver improved torque disturbance rejection capability and allow lowering of the idle speed setpoint, which in turn has positive impacts on fuel economy. The second case study will investigate the use of analytical and numerical tools to aid in the calibration of automotive engine controllers that implicitly and explicitly satisfy legislative emissions constraints..
 +
 +**Biography:** Chris Manzie is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at The University of Melbourne and an Australian Research Council Future Fellow, with a research group of 14 postgraduates and postdoctoral fellows. He is an Assistant Dean (Research Training) and the Mechatronics Discipline coordinator in the Melbourne School of Engineering. He was a Visiting Scholar with the University of California, San Diego in 2007 and will be a Scientific Visitor at IFP Energies Nouvelles, Paris in late-2012. He has industry collaborations with several companies including Ford Australia, BAE Systems, ANCA Motion, DSTO and Virtual Sailing. His research interests lie in applications of model-based and extremum-seeking control to the fields of mechatronics and energy systems. Associate Professor Manzie is also a member of the IEEE and IFAC Technical Committees on Automotive Control, and was a failure as both a runner and triathlete most likely due to a lack of natural ability.

 +** Seminar:** Resilient and Expandable Distribution Network for Smart Community
 +
 +**Speaker: Professor Ryuichi Yokoyama**, Waseda University, Japan
 +
 +**Abstract:** The widespread shortage of electricity occurred by the Tohoku Earthquake in March of 2011 has made us keenly aware of the need for households, offices, factories, and local governments to maintain their own power sources that are not completely dependent on electric power companies. In constructing such power sources, locally generated and consumed renewable energy from solar and wind sources would be mainly utilized. However, such power sources would affect the power grid through fluctuation of power output and the deterioration of power quality. Therefore, a new social infrastructure to supply electric power would be required. As a countermeasure of the problem, it would be suitable to create resilient and expandable distribution networks that are of appropriate scale for their respective regions instead of large-scale networks all at once. The network will add new clusters when needed, and have them collaborate with each other where regional governments are the main entities. In this presentation, the current status and features of the government driven developments for smart grids and communities in Japan are introduced, and cluster-oriented expandable networks are discussed focusing on resiliency of the grid against natural disaster. Vital lifelines could be secured even during large-scale natural disasters, if such administrative agencies, hospitals, police stations, schools, evacuation centers, communication bases, and elderly housing facilities were completed centering on the Cluster-Oriented Expandable Network operated by regional governments. This concept is known as “resiliency,” and it will one day be the guideline for building the social infrastructure.
 +
 +This presentation includes the following subjects.
 +-Paradigm Shift for Stable Power Supply after Natural Disaster in Japan
 +-Issues of Large Scale Penetration of Sustainable Energy
 +-Expectation and Implementation of Smart Grid and Community
 +-Resilient and Expandable Smart Distribution Network for Disaster and Restoration
 +-Prospects of Smart Grid and Community
