Overview of Hierarchical Control of Energy Sources in the Smart Grid

August 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The modernization of the current power grid faces several challenges including optimally integrating multiple energy sources amid more difficult demand/source variability and cybersecurity concerns. In this talk, I will present an overview of the current energy source power management techniques which includes multiple layers; from local power electronics/field control to optimization approaches such as economic dispatch, optimal power flow, and unit commitment. In addition, I will discuss a few of the current challenges and research directions with regards to the latter, such as the dealing with nonconvex problems (e.g. optimal power flow) and optimization in very large power networks. Lastly, the applications of these methods to shipboard and aircraft microgrids will also be discussed.
