12-14 Dec, 2017 : Smart Mobility, Power Transfer & Security




12 - 14 Dec, 2017

Dept. of EE, The Hong Kong
Polytechnic University

The 7th International Conference on Power Electronics Systems and Applications will be held in December 2017 in Hong Kong. This three-day conference focuses on the recent research and the industrial projects of power electronics and related technology.

The conference aims to be a key international forum for the exchange and dissemination of technical information on power electronics among academics and practicing engineers in the field.

The coming conference features technical presentations and panel discussion sessions. The technical presentations will be presented by eminent academics, engineers and managers around the world and will cover topics of current interest in the area of static power conversion, machines, drives, traction, devices, simulation, and energy saving. The panel discussion sessions will provide an open forum for exchanging ideas on the recent development, applications and new standards in power electronics.

This year the theme is "Smart Mobility, Power Transfer & Security", which aims to explore the near future new energy processing for applications and research in the field. All papers will be published in IEEE Xplore subject to IEEE and Conference committee.

Defective detection technique and equipment for safe operation of the high-speed railway pantograph-catenary (6C)

In the traction supply system, most of the defects come from pantograph-catenary system. Due to the violent vibration of the catenary and the violent arc in the pantograph-catenary, the collapse and short circuit of the catenary often take place and will interfere or even threaten the safe operation of the vehicles. In the past decades, the detection of pantograph-catenary is human-based. 40 thousand railway personnel climbed onto the support devices to check the potential defects during night. With the rapid growth of the China high-speed railway’s mileage, to ensure the safe operation of the high-speed railway and eliminate the hidden danger of the workers, an automatic detection system is established to report all of the potential defects and evaluate the health of the pantograph-catenary.
