Fast Solvers for Emerging Power Systems

Prof. Dr. Domenico Lahaye, TU Delft

15 Apr 2013, 16:15–17:45; Location: S2|17-103

National power grids are currently evolving from static entities, producing mainly a uni-directional flow from generation to loads, to more dynamic and decentralized structures. These emerging power systems should accommodate the local generation by renewable sources and peak demands of electrical vehicle charging. The cross-border interconnection of power grids further imposes new challenges in the design, planning and daily operation of these networks. In this talk we will present recent and ongoing developments in computational methods for these power systems. We will start by presenting results from the recent PhD thesis of Reijer Idema that demonstrate the scalability of a Newton-Krylov solver for the network state equations. Subsequently we will present how this work in continued in the PhD thesis of Martijn de Jong on the contingency analysis of the networks considered. We will conclude the talk by presenting preliminary results of the PhD project of Romain Thomas on the fast computation of fast transients in power systems. We will show how the three PhD projects discussed profit from adaptive multilevel techniques.
