Distribution Automation System in Japan by Dr Yosuke Nakanishi Fuji Electric Co Seminar Notice Date & Time : 27 May 2005, 11:00 a.m. Location : Rm 603, Chow Yei Ching Bldg Abstract : Many distribution generator systems (DGs), such as photovoltaic or wind generation, and co-generation systems, are going to be interconnected to the electric power distribution systems as mentioned in the previous presentation of Prof. Yokoyama, . As a manufacturing company, we have contributed the establishment of Distribution Automation systems (DAS) for conventional distribution systems, and now, we are challenging new systems considering the DGs ¦ i n uence on po w qua y, st ab y and s o on I n m presen fl er lit ilit . y ation, beginning with the Japanese current operated DAS, then I would like show you our new project conducted by the METI. The expected contents are as follows., -Current state of Distribution network systems in Japan -Automation and technical trend of distribution network -New project moved to the advanced distribution network systems Biography: Yosuke Nakanishi was born in Hyogo, Japan on January 6, 1955. He received B.S. and M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Waseda University and Ph.D. from Tokyo Metropolitan University in 1978, 1980, and 1996 respectively. He joined Fuji Electric Co. in 1980 and is currently working as a manager of Power System Analysis Group, Corporate Technology Development Office, Fuji Electric Systems Co., Ltd. As an educational activity, he is a lecture of Waseda University. His research interests include simulation and analysis of power systems and distribution power systems.
