"J-Park Simulator: The road map to a smart industrial park "

The industrial park on Jurong Island consumes more than 30% of Singapore’s energy. Small improvements can lead to significant savings and reduce Singapore’s carbon footprint. But which improvements should be made? In what combination? And what will the consequences be? In this presentation we introduce the J-Park Simulator (JPS). JPS is a next-generation modelling tool which can provide public sector agencies and infrastructure providers with the ability to assess the full, multi-dimensional impact of different ’what-if’ scenarios in real time. From the chemical processes to the electrici-ty grids and from building information management to safety controls, JPS is able to give clear, visual infor-mation to support decision-making and option analysis. During this first public presentation, we will demon-strate JPS at work on case studies including low grade waste heat recovery, how chemical processes interact with the plant electricity consumption and safety aspects of storage tank design. All are welcome to attend the demonstration, which will be of particular interest to those involved in sce-nario analysis or decision-making support in public sector agencies and industrial sectors relating to infra-structure support.

Prof Markus Kraft is a Fellow of Churchill College Cambridge and Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology. He is the director of CARES ltd., the Singapore-Cambridge CREATE Research Centre. He is also a principal investigator of “Cambridge Centre for Carbon Reduction in Chemical Technology (C4T)”. He obtained the academic degree 'Diplom Technomathematiker' at the University of Kaiserslautern in 1992 and completed his Doctor rerum naturalium in Technical Chemistry at the same University in 1997. Subsequently, he worked at the University of Karlsruhe and the Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics in Berlin. In 1999 he became a lecturer in the Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Cambridge. He has a strong interest in the area of computational modelling and optimisation targeted towards developing carbon abatement and emissions reduction technologies for the automotive, power and chemical industries. Together with his research students he has also contributed significantly towards the detailed modelling of combustion synthesis of organic and inorganic nanoparticles and worked on engine simulation, spray drying and the granulation of fine powders.

Prof. Hongbin Sun
Tsinghua University (China PR)
" Energy internet "

Energy Internet is a new generation of energy system that deeply integrates the energy system and the Internet together. Beyond smart grid, it enables both energy interconnection and information interconnection, also named, “Internet-like energy system” and “Internet+”. The former refers to the energy system, indicating the reform of the existing energy system based on Internet Thinking. This includes multi-energy open integration, energy quasi-free transmission and open peer access. The latter refers to the information system, indicating the integration of the Internet in the energy system. This is the “operating system” of Energy Internet, covering Energy Internet of things, energy management and Energy Internet market. Three key scientific and technological issues are proposed: 1)coupling of various forms of energy, 2)coupling of all segments of energy system, and 3) coupling of energy and information. Energy management for multi-energy flow is an important tool for the safe and efficient operation of multi-energy flow system, and it is faced with three main challenges: multiple-energy flow coupling, multi-time scale and multi-management body. Currently research related to this area is still in its infancy. Four key technologies are prospected: 1) multi-energy flow real-time modeling and state estimation, 2) multi-energy flow multi-time scale security analysis and security control, 3) multi-energy flow hybrid-time scale optimization and scheduling, 4) design, development and validation of energy management system (EMS) for multi-energy flow.

Prof. Hongbin Sun is Changjiang Scholar Professor of Education Ministry of China, director of the Energy Management and Control Research Center and deputy director of the Academic Affair Office, Tsinghua University (THU). Prof. Sun received his PhD degree from Dept. of E.E., THU in 1997. His interests include smart grid and energy internet. Prof. Sun is the co-author of over 300 peer-reviewed papers and 4 books. He held over 80 patents in China, three patents in USA and one patent in Europe. He is an IET Fellow, editor of the IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid and associate editor of IET Renewable Power Generation. He is the founder Chairman of Energy Internet oriented Xiangshan Meeting (香山会议), which is the most top-level academic meeting series managed by Chinese Government.
