Gold Medal at the XIV International Warsaw Invention Show – IWIS 2020

Over 250 solutions from various fields of science from 20 countries were presented during the 14th edition of the International Warsaw Invention Show – IWIS 2020 which was held online on October 19-21, 2020. It is the largest international event in Poland promoting inventiveness and innovation.

The solution of the scientists from the Department of Electrical Drives and Machines of Lublin University of Technology regarding the power electronic system of the MV/LV transformer with a kinetic energy storage device was awarded a gold medal. The authors of the invention are: Dariusz Zieliński, BEng, PhD, Karol Fatyga, BEng, MSc, Łukasz Kwaśny, BEng, MSc and Bartłomiej Stefańczak, BEng, MSc.

- This a breakthrough idea because it can replace classic energy transformers used to power single-family houses or production plants, extending their functionality with active power flow control or local energy storage. On a national scale, it is over 100,000 devices - says Dr. Eng. Dariusz Zieliński from the Department of Electrical Drives and Machines.

The event was organized by the Association of Polish Inventors and Rationalizers in cooperation with the Polish Patent Office and the International Federation of Inventors’ Association (IFIA).
