Electric Energy Systems

Permanent URI for this community

The Electric Energy Systems track seeks to explore critical questions and innovative methods at the frontier of next generation electric power systems and energy systems worldwide. The focus is on the technical, economic, and policy issues at the forefront of current research, development, and demonstration. The track consists of four mini tracks, scheduled across eight sequential sessions to encourage attendees to discuss and exchange ideas over the entire track.

The topic of the first mini-track is Monitoring, Control and Protection in electric power system for real-time operations and short-term operations planning. This includes innovations that focus on recent developments in the area of large-scale dynamics and control and on distributed decision concepts for generation, storage, and loads. Papers in this minitrack are organized in two sessions covering a range of topics in synchronization, oscillations, and stability in future transmission and distribution systems.

The Policy, Markets, and Computation minitrack focuses on engineering and economic interactions within the electric grid. It includes identifying metrics and the need for risk and flexibility, as well as the characterization of market products and public policies that incentivize diversification of resources to provide system flexibility. The first session in this minitrack explores the questions of optimization for decision-making under uncertainty and market operations. The second set of papers in this minitrack explores topics related to interdependence with other systems.

The Distributed, Renewable, and Mobile Resources minitrack considers modeling, simulation and hardware developments; economic and system analyses; and studies of individual and organizational (including governments) behavior and decision-making for integrating distributed, renewable, and mobile resources in electric power systems. The first session in this minitrack discusses topics in renewable energy deployment and forecasting to maximize production and utilization of these resources. The second set of papers in this minitrack focuses on understanding and leveraging the changing landscape of demand-side resources.

The Resilient Networks minitrack, focuses on enhancing the reliability, security, and resilience of future electric power infrastructure. Advanced technologies will require sophisticated methods for understanding how they can be incorporated into increasingly complex and dynamic infrastructure. Papers in this minitrack explore topics such as machine learning and AI, optimization, and computation for managing system risk and enhancing resilience under increasing uncertainty.
