On Sep 23 2020, Dr. Yu Liu and two Ph.D students from PSPAL Mr. Binglin Wang and Mr. Dayou Lu attended an academic seminar in Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU). Prof. Chunju Fan from SJTU hosted the seminar. Prof. Fan is a well-known expert in the area of line fault location. In the seminar, Mr. Binglin Wang gave a talk entitled “HVAC and HVDC Transmission line Fault Location using Dynamic State Estimation", mainly introducing two model based fault location methods in phasor domain [J9] and time domain [J5, J12]. Mr. Dayou Lu gave a talk entitled “Voltage Method Based Transmission Line Fault Location”, mainly introducing voltage distribution based fault location method using numerical solution of the partial differential equations [J10].

During the two presentations, Prof. Chunju Fan asked valuable questions and provided insightful suggestions on the proposed methods, practical engineering considerations of the methods and future research directions. Afterwards, they discussed possible future collaborations.
