Prof. Hee-Je Kim

Pusan National University, Korea

Speech: Hybrid (Solar + Wind) Power System and Various ESS (Energy Storage System) Applications (Abstract)

Prof. Hee-Je Kim got PhD of Energy Conversion, Kyushu University, Fukuoka city, Japan. (1990, March) At present he is professor of Department of Electrical Engineering in Pusan National University (Busan, South Korea). And the group leader of BRL (Basic Research Lab.). He is currently working as an Associate Editor of NJC (New Journal of Chemistry)-RSC shared and Editorial Board Member of Journal [Energies], and the two permanent member of Korea Institute of Electrical Engineers [KIEE] / Renewable Energy.

Our research area is dynamic, multi-objective, practical solution based research with a focus on highly efficient solar energy conversion and effective energy storage. That is related to mainly four area: i) Fabrication and commercialization of next-generation solar cells such as dye synthesized solar cells, quantum- dot, and perovskite solar cells).  ii) Improving efficiency of existing solar PV and wind hybrid  systems using different tools and techniques. iii) High energy and power density flexible super-capacitor for hybrid energy storage system. v) Dual active bridge (DAB), DC/DC Converter, MPPT, PV Inverter, Remote control by smart-phone with novel algorithm for Power conditioning system.
