Keynote Speakers of 2022
Prof. Lim Yun Seng
Chairperson for Research Centre of Power Systems and Electricity
Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman, Malaysia
Professor Ir. Dr. Lim Yun Seng (BEng (Hons), PhD (UK), CEng, PE(PC), MIET, SMIEEE, MIEM, FAAET), has successfully developed the first utility scale, self-intelligent energy storage system (ESS) of 400kVA and 677kWh on the power grid in Malaysia using patented controllers to reduce maximum power demands for customers and utilities. With the system, utilities like TNB avoid adding new power plants and/or upgrading power networks, resulting in greenhouse emissions reduction and brings down the price of electricity which is essential to a developing country. The system also reduces commercial end-user electricity bills by reducing maximum demand charges. He has also developed another novel ESS that promotes renewable energy sources to mitigate climate change issues. Prof Lim is the founder and director of IoT Energy S/B that designs ESS projects for utilities such as TNB and Sarawak Electricity Board (SEB). Prof Lim has published 62 journal papers, where 15 journals are ranked in the top 5% in Clarivate Analysis and 30 conference papers with 1273 citations at h- index of 20 and 16 in Google Scholar and Scopus, respectively. He obtained RM6.3 million in research funding, consultancy projects with worth of RM65,000 and holds 3 granted patents (Malaysia and China) and 5 pending patents (3 in Malaysia and 2 in Indonesia). Prof Lim has successfully graduated 5 PhD and 14 Master students. He is the lead author for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Sixth Assessment Report (IPCC, United Nations) that assesses mitigation and solutions to the threat of climate changes. Prof Lim won 25 international and national awards such as Energy Globe Award 2010, Gold Medal in 2013 ITEX, UTAR Best Invention of the year 2013, National Outstanding Innovator Award in 2017 by Private Education Co-operative of Malaysia and 2018 Top Research Scientist Malaysia by Academy of Sciences Malaysia.
