Power system operation,
My research interests include power system
operations and economics, optimization, and applications of artificial
intelligence to solve power system problems. The following are genral
descriptions of projects which I have worked on in the last 5 years:
several projects investigating the impact of the new enregy policy and
environmental policies on system operations, pricing or power in a
de-regulated environment, maintenance scheduling, load forecasting using
time-series analysis, artificial neural networks, fuzzy neural networks,
distribution system analysis and Volt/Var control on radial distribution
The above work has been for the most part done in collaboration with
a large electric utility in the Southeast using actual data on the
utility's large scale power system.
I have a power systems simulation laboratory. It includes:
-Two IBM RISC6000 workstations and 9 Pcs.
-Power system analysis Software tools that can solve Load flow, Optimal
power flow, Unit Commitment on large scale power systems.
-Load forecasting software using artifitial neural networks and
-Software to perform load flow analysis, optimal capacitor placement on
primary distribution feeders.
