Critical loads and service continuity
Power systems, critical for the mission of their loads (hospitals, data centers) and/or equalized to mission critical for the vulnerability of their supplying network, need a “partition system”, local fortified structure, interface between network and utilization, designed as a service continuity “castle” and managed to guarantee an adequate response to every emergency. This operational management must ensure the efficacy of the partition system in maintaining dependability and functional safety against the loss service continuity during fault events, maintenance demands and emergencies for external stresses. The system structure design can apply a “Darwinian” approach aimed to mitigate also the external stresses and service losses against expected dangerous events such as earthquake, fire and other events that can cause long blackouts from the main network. Preventive measures to reduce the earthquake consequences, predictable in that location, are based on the principles of controlling and mitigating the seismic stresses. A special power distribution, herein defined as “brush distribution” are proposed for critical buildings exposed to seismic risks and for road tunnels with higher risk in case of fire event. The design of a power system requires a comprehensive and permanent design and highest consideration of competence of system maintenance operators." – Ehhez kerüljön fel az előadó képe (s200_g..parise.jpg) is.

The Chair is committed to create an easy-to-follow schedule that is professionally remarkable, exciting, and would also leave you some time for making long-term connections.

The preliminary schedule is available HERE.


As on all of the previous IYCEs, the Organizing Committee is making great efforts to put together an outstanding technical program. It will include several sessions on energy-related hot topics from notable people, round table discussions, a site visit, and some other astonishing events that we will be soon sharing with our participants!


Those of you who have already been to one of the IYCEs, know that one key specialty of our conference is that aside from keeping the professional standards high, we lay great emphasis on making these few days memorable on a social level as well.

Brace yourselves for 2019, because we are preparing some awesome and “electrifying” social events, in order to offer you opportunities to connect with likeminded people, and at last, but not least - to feel yourselves great!
