Optimization in Energy and Environmental Systems

October 14, 2021

4:15 pm – 5:15 pm
Location: Madison, WI

Prof. Michael Ferris (Computer Sciences Department, UW–Madison) will discuss: Power grids across the world depend on optimization models that capture interactions between producers, transmission and consumers. The recent explosion of renewable supply such as wind, solar and hydro has led to increased volatility at different time scales. We develop optimization models that consider investment and fuel costs, emissions, electricity prices, and lost-load.
