EECS Power Faculty Candidate Seminar: Modeling and Analysis of Energy Networks: System-theoretic Solutions to Fundamental Challenges by Dr. Manish Singh, University of Minnesota
WSU Pullman - Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Building

Driven by sustainability aspirations, tremendous progress has been made in the past decade towards synthesis and solution of complex problems in management of energy networks. Targeting theoretical footings for these algorithmic developments, this talk answers fundamental questions on energy-system modeling and analysis using classical constructs from linear algebra and graph theory. The first part of the talk will focus on model reduction to manage complexity in large-scale power networks.

ESIC SP23 Power Seminar Series ~ An Approach for the Direct Inclusion of Weather Information in Electric Grid Analysis by Dr. Thomas Overbye, TAMU
WSU Pullman - Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Building

While it is widely recognized that weather impacts electric grid operations, historically weather information has only been implicitly included in common grid analysis packages. This presentation provides an approach for the direct inclusion of weather information in the power flow and the optimal power flow.

AGI SP23 Power Seminar Series — Resilient Communities via Risk-driven Infrastructure Planning and Automated Restoration
WSU Pullman - Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Building

This talk will introduce a recently funded effort by the US Department of Energy, Solar Energy Technology Office, under Renewables Advancing Community Energy Resilience (RACER) program. The project aims at improving the grid resilience for underserved communities primarily affected by high-speed wind hazards using metrics-driven distribution system planning and DG-assisted automated restoration. We will target a low-income focus area in the City of Rockford within ComEd’s service territory for the deployment and field demonstration of the proposed innovations.
