Throughout the research of smart grid with renewable energies, Prof. Park Jung- Wook has attracted a lot of attention in power system and power electronics societies in the world. Prof. Park won the 2012 Hae-Dong Young Scientist Award from the Institute of Electronics and Information Engineers (IEIE) in 2012. Also, He has led the national Leading Research Laboratory (nLRL) designated by Ministry of Science, ICT, and Future Planning, Korea government from 2011. In particular, he had the greatest honor to win the Young Scientist Presidential Award in electrical and electronic engineering from the Korean Academy of Science and Technology, Korea, with the best research achievement of nLRL project to the subject of integrated optimal operation for smart grid, in 2013.
Moreover, this project was selected as the national TOP 100 excellent progress among all national researches and developments funded by government in 2014. By carrying out this big project, it is expected to improve the reliability of smart grid with energy storage devices and renewable energies such as wind and photovoltaic, etc. Also, it can enhance the energy utilization and optimize the system with demand response reflecting the accurate load characteristics in the effective and efficient manner.
Prof. Park said that “It is completely different matter to operate the system in practice even though you have simulated the same system with the good analysis in several times. Although it requires the painful effort and difficulties to verify the valuable outputs in practice, it is worth to challenge for the real creation of new future.”
