Renewable energies in many countries are hitting significant levels and there are many promising situations and targets. The world is now generating more than 23% of its electricity from renewable energies and targeting 100% renewable power generation by 2050. There are countries working with 100% renewable energies grids like Iceland and other countries are very near like Norway and Costa Rica with penetration levels 98% and 95% respectively. One of the promising situations which is going to be presented in this webinar lies in Africa, Upper-Egypt region in Egypt is now operating with 100% renewable energy technologies mainly hydro and photovoltaic power stations. The control of voltage and frequency of the 100% sustainable energy grids and microgrids improves the reliability and security of electricity. A modern secondary voltage control application in a 100% renewable energy grid fed mainly by photovoltaics and wind farms is going to be presented. A modern frequency control application in an isolated fully sustainable marine microgrid fed by tidal, offshore wind and waves technologies at different operating conditions is also going to be presented. The planning for turning a community or an institution to grid-tied 100% sustainable energy zero cost will also be covered in this webinar.
Dr. Hady Habib received his Ph.D. degree in 2019 at the age of 29 years old, in Electrical Power Engineering, from Helwan University, Egypt including associated research with Texas A&M University, USA. He got his B.Sc. degree in 2011, and M.Sc. degree in 2014 from Helwan University.
Dr. Hady is the chairman and the initiator of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society Egypt Chapter. He initiated the chapter to serve Egyptian researchers and engineers to connect with each other and with experts worldwide aiming to have solutions to Egyptian problems in Energy and water in addition to leading Egypt to be part of the fifth industrial revolution.
He is currently working as a lecturer in the Energy Program, Faculty of Engineering, Heliopolis University. He is also the head of research unit in the Faculty of Engineering, Heliopolis University.
Hady published more than 20 papers in different journals and conferences, his area of study includes smart grid, 100% renewable energy, power system control, microgrids, optimization, control engineering, and water energy food nexus.
In 2020, he won best second paper award in the inter-chapter paper competition from IEEE Industrial Electronics society over 84 papers. The paper has the title “100% Winter Sustainable Energy Platform at Heliopolis University”, the research is aiming to convert his home institution to 100% renewable energy campus through a proposed intelligent scheme.
In 2017, he won a grant to study teaching and research of renewable energy in Texas A&M University, the USA from Fulbright association and now he is a member of Fulbright alumni.
In 2016, he won the best paper award from the Trinex Tempus project on creating a model to integrate sustainable water, green energy, and secured food together. The paper entitled “Design & Control of an Agriculture Photovoltaic Reverse Osmosis Desalination System Case Study Heliopolis University” Hady H. Fayek, Heba A. Mosalam, and Rasha M.S. El-Kholy, Best Paper Award, TriNex Knowledge-Triangle Platform for the Water-Energy-Food WEF-Nexus 544397-TEMPUS-1-2013-1- IT-TEMPUS (https://www.trinex.eu/trinex-best-paper-award-2/).
Hady is a guest editor and reviewer in many IEEE, Tech-science, MDPI, Elsevier and IET transactions, journals and conferences. He is also a member of the Industrial Electronics Smart Grid Technical committee in the IEEE.
