Keywords: power grid, cascades, optimization, stochastics, robustness
The power grid can be considered one of twentieth-century engineering’s greatest achievements, and as grids and populations grow, robustness is a factor that planners must take into account. Power grid robustness is a complex problem for two reasons: the underlying physics is mathematically complex, and modeling is complicated by lack of accurate data.
This book sheds light on this complex problem by
This book is intended for operations researchers who want to learn about power grids and power engineers who seek a more in-depth understanding of optimization methodologies and of the rigorous thinking used in optimization.
About the Author
Daniel Bienstock is a Professor in the Department of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research, Columbia University. He has a joint affiliation with the Department of Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics. Prior to joining Columbia University, Professor Bienstock was in the combinatorics and optimization research group at Bellcore. He has also participated in collaborative research with several industrial partners. He received the 2013 INFORMS Fellow award, a Presidential Young Investigator award, and an IBM Faculty award; he gave a plenary address at the 2005 SIAM Conference on Optimization and a semiplenary at the 2006 ISMP conference. His research focuses on optimization and high-performance computing, and a second focus involves the use of computational mathematics in the analysis and control of power grids, especially the study of vulnerabilities and of cascading blackouts.
