Prof. Bikash Pal

 Imperial College London (ICL), UK

IEEE Fellow

Bikash Pal is a Professor of Power Systems at Imperial College London (ICL). He is research active in power system stability, control, and estimation. Currently he is leading a six university UK-China research consortium on Resilient Operation of Sustainable Energy Systems (ROSES) as part of EPSRC-NSFC Programme on Sustainable Energy Supply. He led UK-China research consortium project on Power network stability with grid scale storage (2014-2017): He also led an eight- university UK-India research consortium project (2013-2017) on smart grid stability and control. His research is conducted in strategic partnership with ABB, SIEMENS, GE Grid Solutions, UK, and National Grid, UK. UK Power Networks. SIEMENS R&D collaborated with him to develop fast power flow and volt-var control tools in Spectrum Power, an advanced module for distribution management system solution from SIEMENS. This is now commissioned in distribution control centres in Columbia, Bosnia Norway and Azerbaijan serving 15 million customers in these countries. GE commissioned sequel of projects with him to analyse and solve wind farm HVDC grid interaction problems (2013-2019). Prof Pal was the chief technical consultant for a panel of experts appointed by the UNFCCC CDM (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change Clean Development Mechanism). He has offered trainings in Chile, Qatar, UAE, Malaysia and India in power system protections, stability and control topics. He has developed and validated a prize winning 68-bus power system model, which now forms a part of IEEE Benchmark Systems as a standard for researchers to validate their innovations in stability analysis and control design. He was the Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Energy (2012-2017) and Editor-in-Chief of IET Generation, Transmission and Distribution (2005-2012). He was Vice President, PES Publications (2019-2023). He is a Fellow of The Royal Academy of Engineering, UK. In 2016, his research team won the President’s outstanding research team award at Imperial College London (ICL). He is Fellow of IEEE for his contribution to power system stability and control. He is an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer in Power distribution system estimation and control. He has published about 125 papers in IEEE Transactions and authored four books in power system modelling, dynamics, estimations and control. He was Otto Monsted Professor at Denmark Technical University (DTU) (2019) and Mercator Professor sponsored by German Research Foundation (DFG) at University of Duisburg-Essen in 2011.

Prof. Di Yun

Xi'an Jiaotong University, China


Outstanding scholar in the ‘Youth Talent Plan’
Director of ‘Key R&D Project Issues’ for the Ministry of Science and Technology

Dr. Di Yun is a professor in the Department of Nuclear Science and Technology of Xi'an Jiaotong University. He is an outstanding scholar in the ‘Youth Talent Plan’ and served as the director of ‘Key R&D Project Issues’ for the Ministry of Science and Technology. Professor Yun received his PhD in Nuclear Engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2010. He worked at Argonne National Laboratory as a nuclear engineer in the Nuclear Engineering Division from 2010 to 2015. He joined Xi'an Jiaotong University in 2015.

Professor Yun focuses on developing advanced nuclear fuel materials. On the theoretical front, he explored a novel approach, multi-atom nucleation, to describe gas bubble nucleation process in metallic nuclear fuel materials; he also investigated in fundamental aspects of nuclear fuel performance modeling and applied multi-scale simulation methods to address fuel performance issues. On the experimental front, he is developing nitride coatings for advanced nuclear fuel systems for light water reactors and has received technological awards in this area; he is currently pushing for development of such materials into real engineering application scenarios.
