Blog 10 - Paper presentation at GPECOM2024

Tao, 17 June 2024

From June 4th to 7th, 2024, I had the opportunity to attend and present my work titled "Comparative Study of Low Frequency Transmission Solutions for Offshore Wind Farms " at the IEEE 6th Global Power, Energy and Communication Conference (GPECOM2024) conference in Budapest, Hungary. This conference, held at the Bosch Budapest Innovation Campus, brought together a diverse group of professionals from industry and academia.  


The technical program was rich with content, featuring invited talks, tutorials, and parallel sessions. The quality and diversity of the research presented was impressive. I attended numerous sessions that provided new insights into modern power and energy systems, which will undoubtedly influence my future work.  


IEEE GPECOM 2024 was also an excellent platform for networking. I had engaging discussions with peers, established new collaborations, and received valuable feedback on my research. The keynote speeches were particularly inspiring, featuring distinguished speakers who shared their expertise and vision for the future of power technologies

During the conference, I presented my paper titled "Comparative Study of Low Frequency Transmission Solutions for Offshore Wind Farms " in the Power Electronics, Devices, and Controllers session. This paper compares two low-frequency AC transmission schemes using onshore back-to-back frequency converters, from the perspective of system topology and control strategy, and discusses operation under varying power references and harmonic content for both schemes. Afterwards, I was presented with a certificate of participation by the session's chair, Prof. Ersan Kabalci.

In addition to the technical sessions, the conference organizers planned several social and cultural events. These include a welcome ceremony at the Bosch Innovation Campus and a gala dinner on a cruise boat on the Blue Danube, allowing us to experience the rich cultural heritage of Budapest and foster a sense of community among the participants. 

Attending this international conference was an enriching experience that provided me with new knowledge and professional connections. I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute to this dynamic field and look forward to applying the insights gained to my ongoing research.
