Optimization for Smart Grids
Optimization for Smart Grids (OSG) is a research initiative on the application of mathematical optimization techniques to current and emerging challenges in the planning and operation of modern power systems.
Our vision is to optimize the long-term supply of reliable and sustainable electricity that is fundamental to tomorrow's economic growth and social well-being.
Our mission is:
- to create innovative methods to optimally produce, deliver, and use electricity;
- to train tomorrow's experts on the optimal design and operation of smart grids;
- to communicate how smart grids will improve quality of life.
Our research activities focus on devising new methods to optimize the use of the power network by taking advantage of the state-of-the-art in mathematical optimization. The new methods will contribute to optimally planning the operations and maintenance of large-scale electricity grids, to maximizing the amount of energy transmitted by modern electricity systems, and to ensuring that electricity is delivered as efficiently as possible.
