Power Electronics and Distributed Generation are two key technologies to develope the modern society towards a more sustainable one and their interplay are very important. Many countries are announcing ambitious plans for distributed generation e.g. wind turbines and photovoltaics and the power electronics is ensuring that the grid integration is done well. However, the real driver to make all those technologies is price so continuously we have to be able to do circuits more smarter, do the control more intelligent and understand better the context the distributed generation is integrated into the grid. The third symposium of Power Electronics and Distributed Generation will be held in Aalborg, Denmark following up on two succesfull symposia in China in 2010 and 2008. Denmark is one of leading countries in renewable energy technologies but also of the integration of distributed generation. For example covers wind now more than 25 % of the whole electricity production in Denmark and there is a plan saying that in 2050 Denmark should be fossil fuel independent.
The symposium in Aalborg will be held June 25 to June 28, 2012 in the city-center at the Aalborg Congress and Culture Center – very close to the beautiful harbor and also very close to many hotels at different levels. The first day tutorials will be held – the next two and half days a combination of key-note lectures, oral presentations and poster presentations will be done. The last afternoon an industrial tour will be held for all participants. A tour to our campus will also be organized. A reception will be held in an Art Museum and the “Galla” dinner will be a surprise. At this time of the year we normally have good weather (20-27 degrees C) and it is characteristic that we have very long days with sun in close to 18 hours and light nights which is a pleasant experience in the calm town of Aalborg. The town is also easy accessible by more than 20 daily flights from Copenhagen but also from cities like London, Amsterdam, Oslo, Reykjavik and the airport is located 6 km form the city center. We look forward to host you
