black-start functionality. New control
technology allows inverter-based resources to synchronize dynamically
and autonomously with no losses to the
grid stability. Research and industry
recognize the grid-forming capability
provided by inverters in steady states
and during system dynamics. Advanced controls, such as frequency regulation and voltage regulation, have been
demonstrated and are widely available
from inverter-based resources. Transient
functions, such as fault current contribution and inrush current management,
have been discussed and developed in
some pilot projects. All and all, inverterbased resources are ready to take on the
system restoration task on their own.
Let's again take the example of the
imaginary grid hit by the hurricane. If
the storm took out major transmission
lines and transformers, the grid would

likely black out entirely, and repairing it would take considerable time. If,
however, a sufficient number of DERs
remained functional after the hurricane
and some distribution lines still connected users, these DERs could be used
to power the community through smart
control and protection schemes. Multiple communities that were powered
quickly through these distributed technologies could amass enough energy
to restore nearby thermal generators or
provide a reduced cold-load pickup to
speed up the grid restoration process.

Final Remarks
Power grid resiliency remains a critical focus for the modern grid system
because of our dependence on electrical power in all sectors of the economy.
With diversified energy resources, controllable devices, and other supportive

technologies, we will have opportunities to rethink resiliency practices and
continue to make them more robust
and flexible.

Statement

As a volunteer with IEEE and PES for
more than 30 years, I have served in
various capacities, including Singapore
Section Chair, and Regional Representative for Asia-Pacific Region 10. The
power and energy industry is going
through a transformational phase with

renewables and their integration, energy
storage, and digital technologies, and so
on, and PES needs to stay at the forefront
for members' benefit. I will endeavor to
bring value to both younger and experienced engineers at the technical and educational levels-in particular, we need to
continue to attract younger and diverse
members for a sustainable future for the
Society. If elected, I will also continue my
predecessors' great work to curtail costs
and keep the budget in check to benefit
the volunteers. I will help build close
relationships with IEEE sister Societies,
develop good relations with other professional associations, and build global outreach for the benefit of IEEE members.
My experience in attracting and promoting talent, identifying and nurturing innovation, and managing budgets, will be
highly beneficial for this IEEE Board of
Directors position.
