Dr. Junbo Zhao, of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), along with Ph.D. student Ketian Ye and colleagues Dr. Nan Duan from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Dr. Daniel Adrian Maldonado from Argonne National Laboratory, won the best student paper award at the IEEE IAS Industrial & Commercial Power System Asia 2021 for their paper titled “Uncertainty Quantification of Loads and Correlated PVs on Power System Dynamic Simulations”.
The work performed by Zhao, Ye, and the project team developed a novel approach for quantifying correlated uncertain PVs and loads on power system dynamic simulations. “The proposed method is able to accurately quantify the uncertain dynamic simulations and transient system stability while being computationally efficient. This allows the system planners and operators to have significantly enhanced visibility to potential risks caused by variable loads and renewable generations,” stated Dr. Zhao, assistant professor of ECE at Mississippi State University.
