IEEE International Renewable Energy Conference Presentation in Toledo
STEM DRC Initiative CEO Sandrine Mubenga will make the technical presentation on Grid Connected Solar Photovoltaic tonight (Nov 3, 2016) at the Toledo Section IEEE International Renewable Energy Conference.
IEEE Toledo member Ngalula Sandrine Mubenga. Sandrine is the Electrical Engineering Manager at the University of Toledo, where she helps manage a $15 million annual budget. She has worked in industry for 15 years during which she designed, interconnected and/or approved about 50MW of solar PV and worked on distribution system planning and protection. Sandrine is a Professional Engineer and a PhD candidate in Electrical Engineering at the University of Toledo, where she earned her Bachelor and Master degrees.
Abstract For The Paper:
Small island developing states (SIDS) strive to continue economic growth, mitigate climate change and reduce their dependence on imported fossil fuels. They offer a geographical landscape which encourages distributed generation in order to provide power to end users that are located in remote areas. Often times, this distributed generation is accomplished through grid connected solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. Because they do not emit greenhouse gas, and they use the free light from the sun to generate electricity, solar PV systems provide renewable energy in a sustainable way. This paper will respectively discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with grid connected solar PV in island states. It will also propose potential waste management strategies of such solar PV systems from cradle to grave.
