The operation of modern power grids presents challenges and opportunities that are best met with appropriate technical methodology; it is clear that future grids will rely, to a much greater degree that is common today, on extensive sensorization and algorithmic machinery to guide both strategic planning and real-time operation. Although there is significant sophistication already present today, substantial innovative work remains to fulfill the promise implicit in mathematical methodologies.
This workshop will focus on three themes of particular importance: AC power flow analysis and optimization, uncertainty mitigation, and power markets. All presentations will be by faculty and industry experts.
This workshop will be followed by a one-day workshop on Cascading Failures of Power Transmission Systems being held on Saturday, February 23, 2013.
