Dr. Zhaojun Hao, now an ex-member of LASAR, has successfully defended his PhD thesis entitled “Operation and Maintenance of Cyber-Physical Energy Systems Accounting for Reliable and Safe Power Production and Supply,” under the guidance of Prof. Zio and Prof. Di Maio.
Dr. Hao will soon return to China, his home country, to explore new opportunities. The LASAR team wishes him the best in his professional achievements!
Register for the XXV edition of the course RAM&PHM 4.0: Advanced methods for Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, Prognostics and Health Management of industrial equipment, and the II edition of the course Advanced Quantitative Risk & Resilience Assessment.
The GREYDIENT consortium gathered in person for the fourth time since the start of the project. This time, the event was held in Milan at the headquarters of the POLIMI’s Energy Department, and the LASAR team was in charge of the organization.
During the first two days, the ESRs shared updates about their work and got insightful feedback from their colleagues. Leonardo Miqueles (ESR 5) presented about grey-box digital twins and their applications to the risk monitoring and control of nuclear power plants. Juan-Pablo Futalef (ESR 6) explained how to “greyfy” cyber-physical systems and generate scenarios efficiently.
Besides the updates, the ESRs attended trainings on topics such as multi-agent simulations, sensitivity analysis, Bayesian networks, and design thinking. Professionals in charge of these trainings were Prof. Gyunyoung Heo (Kyung Hee Uni.) , Prof. Stefano Magistretti (POLIMI), Prof. Emanuele Borgonovo (Bocconi Uni.), and Prof. Ibrahim Ahmed (POLIMI).
The ESRs also shared experiences and brought up ideas about improving collaboration and the overall experience within the network… and visited the National Museum of Science and Technology Leonardo Da Vinci!
The next GREYDIENT event will be in Thessaloniki, Greece, and Aristotle University of Thessaloniki is in charge of the organization.
With China the largest community in LASAR, the Chinese New Year was everything but quiet. Everyone gathered to celebrate the upcoming year of the Rabbit by bringing a collection of traditional Chinese plates.
This small break was a great chance to exchange smiles and reflect about next events in our group, which is constantly evolving.
Indeed, the year of the Rabbit is expected to bring quietness, yet powerful reflections after times of contemplation.
