Frontiers in Energy Research

Real-time Optimization in Power Distribution Systems

23 May 2017 | Seminar

Frontiers in Energy Research is a series of lectures given by PhD students of their energy-related research work. Anyone can attend. No registration is required.

The deployment of distributed energy technologies such as photovoltaic plants, battery storage, flexible loads, etc. has a fundamental impact on the way power systems are being operated. Making the best use of these resources under volatile operating conditions to guarantee reliable and cost-efficient power supply is at the heart of current research in the field of active distribution networks, also known as “smart grids”.

This presentation outlines the main operational challenges grid operators are facing due to increasing renewable energy infeed and how novel feedback algorithms can be used to robustly optimize power grids in real-time with only limited information.
