February 11th - International Day of Women and Girls in Science

Today is the international day of women and girls in science!
 
With the above mentioned, we would like to tell you a few facts:
 
👩‍🎓 in the current year 2023/2024,102 students enrolled in our study of electrical engineering, of which 32 are girls
👩‍💼 in the last 10 years, the number of female employees in the Department has increased from four to 14
👩‍💻 at the Department today, the ratio of employed women-men is 14-35, which means that the share of women is 29%
👩‍🏫 in 2023, we got our first female assistant professor Mirna Gržanić
👩‍🚀 what it is like to be a female engineer in a field dominated by men, we commented on three panel discussions
🎤 two podcasts were held on the topic: ŽensCast#8 and ŽensCast#9
💁‍♀️ four (out of a total of nine) doctorates last year at ZVNE were defended by women
 
Ladies, you are amazing, don't stop pushing the boundaries. 💪
 
To sum it up, in a words of Mae Jemison, Engineer, Physicist and Former NASA Astronaut: "Don't let anyone rob you of your imagination, your creativity, or your curiosity. It's your place in the world; it's your life. Go on and do all you can with it, and make it the life you want to live.”

China + Croatia = great combination!

It was an honor to host PhD students from Tsinghua University from January 24th to 31st. Thanks to Professor Tomislav Capuder and Professor Ning Zhang, we organized a PhD Day where students of our department and our guests presented their research directions and achievements on the following topics:

💡 China’s power system carbon neutrality transition with demand-side flexibility, Hongyi Wei
💡 Household appliance demand response considering the end-user comfort, Nikolina Čović
💡 Renewable power system planning considering temporal coupled seasonal imbalance, Boyu He
💡 Power Optimization Control for Cross-regional DC lines with LOLP Constraints, Shutong Pu
💡 Power System Optimal Planning Considering Seasonal Energy Storage, Haiyang Jiang
💡 Optimal sizing of solar PV and battery energy storage for renewable energy, Luka Budin
💡 Low inertia power system planning considering frequency quality, Xiao Cai
💡 How to bridge the gap between theory and practice - energy communities and local energy sharing in Europe and Croatia, Mirna Gržanić.
 
The established connections and discussions have provided a solid foundation for further collaboration between our department and Tsinghua University. Moreover, our guests had the opportunity to explore the center of Zagreb and visit the Plitvice Lakes National Park, Trakošćan Castle and the Museum of Krapina Neanderthal, while enjoying local delicacies. 

Thank you for your visit, we look forward to new cooperations and future gatherings!

Green Transition in Croatia and Problems with Waste Management Policy

In the Christmas issue of the Nacional News Magazin, our professor Davor Škrlec gave an interview in which he explained the failure of the national waste management policy and the transformation of society towards a circular economy, the lagging of Croatia in the green transition due to the ineffective organization of the state, under-capacitated and incompetent public administration. He spoke openly about the challenges facing the European Union to move away from fossil fuels and become carbon neutral while maintaining global geopolitical influence and economic strength.

The full text of the interview can be read here.

Visit to Revoz factory in Novo Mesto

We are delighted to have visited the Revoz factory in Novo Mesto on December 14, 2023. From its rather modest beginning 60 years ago as a small workshop for mechanical repairs of agricultural machines, Revoz gradually grew into a major car manufacturing company, globally renowned for its efficiency and top quality. Today, the factory produces Renault Clio and Renault Twingo, including its electric version. This is why we scheduled a visit to Revoz within the graduate class Electric and Hybrid Vehicles. Our master and PhD students, as well as the professors, were thrilled to walk through the entire factory and watch all the car construction phases. We are grateful to Petar Nevistic and the rest of the Revoz team for taking time to for us!
