Plenary Lecture

Understanding Electric Power Equipment Dynamics within Industrial Ecology Framework

Professor Cornelia Aida Bulucea
University of Craiova
Faculty of Electrical Engineering

Abstract: Integrating technical and ecological aspects should represent a significant challenge to humanity within the present industrial world, particularly for optimising the safe and sustainable operation of electric power equipment and systems. In line with this idea, sustainability concepts linked to mathematical models can improve understanding of the efficiencies of electric power equipment and systems and guide improvement efforts. This lecture addresses some aspects illustrating energy conversion processes during the operation of power transformers and induction motors, as modeling examples of sustainable electric equipment. Taking a holistic view, one focuses on highlighting that industrial ecology permits an alternate view of anthropogenic applications, related both to technical and environmental reference systems. Modelling of an electric power transformer in the use phase, and of an induction motor operating within an electrically driven system according to an industrial ecosystem pattern enhances thinking that anthropogenic activities can and should be viewed in concert with the entire system on Earth.
