As part of the IEEE Power Electronics Distinguished Lecture Series, Professor Balog, REAPERlab Director, gave a talk to the Seoul Power Electronics Society chapter entitled “Power Compensation in the Electrical Distribution System using a D-STATCOM.” The talk explored a solid-state power conditioner that can compensate reactive and harmonic power at or near the source before it flows upstream to the substation. As a fully controllable device, it can be deployed and dispatched as needed in the network.

Dr. Balog wishes to thank Professor Sewan CHOI, IEEE Fellow, Power Electronics & Fuel Cell Power Conditioning Laboratory, Dept. of Electrical & Information Engineering, Seoul National University of Science and Technology for organizing and hosting the lecture.
