由电子科学与工程学院主办的“电子论坛”第25期邀请到前IEEE ECCE大会总主席、IEEE Fellow、美国德州奥斯汀大学Dula D. Cockrell教授黄勤（Alex Q Huang），与我校师生共同探讨宽能源互联网、交互能量和区块链。具体安排如下，欢迎感兴趣的师生参加。
主 题：Energy Internet, Transactive Energy And Blockchain
主讲人：Prof. Alex Q Huang （Chairman of the IEEE ECCE in 2012, IEEE Fellow, Director of Semiconductor Power Electronics Center at University of Texas at Austin）
In this talk, a comparison of the electricity interconnection (power grid) and its business model will be compared with the information internet. The concept of the Energy Internet will then be discussed. The different between Energy Internet and Transactive Energy is also discussed. Finally, several key enable technologies and policy change that could facilitate the Energy Internet are discussed, including the use of the Blockchain as a key software technology.
Alex Q Huang is the Dula D. Cockrell Centennial Chair in Engineering in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin.He is also the director of the newly established Semiconductor Power Electronics Center at UT Austin. Dr. Huang received the bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from Zhejiang University, China in 1983 and his M.S. degree from University of Electronic Science and Technology of China in 1986. He received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from University of Cambridge, UK in 1992. Prior to joining UT Austin, Dr. Huang has been a faculty member at Virginia Tech (1994-2004) and NC State University (2004-2017). At NC State, Dr. Huang established a number of internationally renowned public-private partnerships such as the NSF FREEDM ERC in 2008, NCSU's Advanced Transportation Energy Center (ATEC) in 2008 and the DOE PowerAmerica Institute in 2014. Dr. Huang is a world-renowned expert of power semiconductor devices, power electronics, smart grid and renewable energy system. He has published more than 500 papers in journals and conferences, and is the inventor of more than 20 US patents including several patents on the Emitter turn-off (ETO) thyristor technology that received a prestigious R&D 100 award in 2003. Dr. Huang is also widely credited for his contribution in developing the Energy Internet concept and the Solid-State Transformer (SST) based Energy Router technology. His work on the SST has been named by MIT Technology Review as one of the world’s 10 most important emerging technologies in 2011. He has mentored and graduated more than 80 Ph.D. students and master students. Dr. Huang is a fellow of IEEE and the general chair of IEEE ECCE Conference in 2012.
