Building Research Collaborations: Electricity Systems

Mahantesh Halappanavar, Sven Leyffer, and Victor Zavala participated in a workshop organized by Purdue University on Electricity Systems. The goal of this day and a half workshop is to identify Purdue capabilities and build research collaborations in the area of electricity systems. Knowledge gaps and challenges addressing the Eastern region will be discussed.

Five working session on electricity systems include:

  • Security of Energy Infrastructures
  • Data Management and Analytics
  • Regional Issues
  • Workforce Training
  • Modeling/Simulation/Computing

Mahantesh Halappanavar, Sven Leyffer, and Victor Zavala were panelists in the Advanced Grid Modeling, Simulation, and Computation session. Sven’s keynote presentation highlighted some recent MACS achievements (including results from Stephen Wright on contingency analysis and Cosmin Petra on PIPS). The presentation also spelled out a number of challenges.
