SMART Planning and Operations of Grids With Renewables and Storage a.k.a. SPOReS

Presented by: 
Anupama Kowli
Monday 29th April 2019 - 13:30 to 14:30
INI Seminar Room 1
This talk will introduce the SPOReS project started under the Mission Innovation Smart Grids challenge in India. The goal of SPOReS is to facilitate planning for reliability and affordability along with balancing of grid supply with storage, flexible loads and power electronic controllers. This talk will present two specific deliverables of SPOReS. On the planning front, a graph-based approach for enhancing the reliability of distribution systems by installing new tie-lines will be introduced. The problem is cast as an edge-connectivity augmentation problem. We will discuss the associated solution approaches, ways to factor in practical considerations and metrics based on network topology that capture the reliability impacts of the specific interventions. On the operational front, solutions for load management will be discussed to facilitate demand response and community energy sharing.
