Sustainable Seminar Series: Optimization of Energy Systems


Date: Monday, March 27
Time: 3:30 PM
Speaker: Victor Zavala, Assistant Professor, Chemical and Biological Engineering
Location: 1115 Wisconsin Energy Institute, 1552 University Ave

In this lecture we describe how to use optimization techniques to design diverse types of energy systems and to manage them in real-time. We emphasize on strategies to handle strong trade-offs between economic and environmental efficiency and multiple temporal and spatial scales. Specific applications include electrical and gas transmission networks, batteries, concentrated solar power systems, and combined heat and power systems.
