2024 Impressions

The Third Champéry Power Conference on 4-9 February 2024 is organized by the Institute of Sustainable Energy at the School of Engineering of Valais and the Automatic Control Laboratory of the Swiss Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zürich.

The conference gathers a panel of speakers and an audience of international experts in the field of electric power systems to identify current and future challenges, as well as opportunities facing electric power systems in the context of the energy transition.

Sessions will consist of both invited talks and contributed talks. Regular participants will be given the opportunity to present their results in a poster session and/or in oral communications. During the registration process, participants can select to either make an oral presentation or a poster presentation.

NCCR Automation seeks to boost Switzerland’s position as a leading worldwide hub for research, education, and innovation in automation and control engineering. We investigate new methodological approaches and control algorithms, and their implementation in distributed, embedded computation systems. The methods and algorithms that we develop are applied to real-life problems in automation of energy networks, in future mobility systems, and in industrial processes.

The NCCR Automation is led by ETH Zurich; the research network comprises institutes from EPF Lausanne, Empa, the University of Applied Sciences & Arts Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW), the University of Zurich (UZH), the University of Basel and the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI). 31 principal investigators (PI) lead the scientific work, and numerous doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers are engaged in the various research teams.
