The International Conference on Energy and Power (ICEP) series aims to provide a forum for scientists, engineers, researchers and educators from around the world who are involved in energy and power research, development and innovation. The 1st ICEP2016 was organised by RMIT University in Melbourne (Australia) and the 2nd ICEP2018 was organised by Central Queensland University in Sydney (Australia). Over 150 participants from across the globe attended every conference. The 3rd International Conference on Energy and Power (ICEP2021) will be organised by Chiang Mai University, Thailand and Zhejiang University, China in association with the Australian Society of Energy and Power (ASEP) from 18-20 November 2021.

The conference will enable the participants to present and discuss the latest trends and findings and to learn the state-of-the-art technologies in relevant topics and applications. This conference will cover the broad field of energy and power technologies in all engineering and scientific disciplines. It will be an ideal place to know the recent development in power and energy technologies, which will be presented by leading academics, researchers and industry experts in the field. The conference themes include all aspects of fundamental and applied research in energy and power, but not limited to:

    Control System Design for Low Power Magnetic Bearings in a Flywheel Energy Storage System

    Tinnawat Hongphan, Matthew O. T. Cole, Chakkapong Chamroon, Ziv Brand
    Energy Engineering, Vol.120, No.1, pp. 147-161, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ee.2022.022821

    Abstract This paper presents a theoretical and experimental study on controller design for the AMBs in a small-scale flywheel energy storage system, where the main goals are to achieve low energy consumption and improved rotordynamic stability. A H-infinity optimal control synthesis procedure is defined for the permanent-magnet-biased AMB-rotor system with 4 degrees of freedom. Through the choice of design weighting functions, notch filter characteristics are incorporated within the controller to reduce AMB current components caused by rotor vibration at the synchronous frequency and higher harmonics. Experimental tests are used to validate the controller design methodology and More >
