Allocation of Hourly Reserve Versus Demand Response for Security-Constrained Scheduling of Stochastic Wind Energy
Sahin, Cem; Shahidehpour, Mohammad; Erkmen, İsmet (2013-01-01)
This paper presents a stochastic method for the hourly scheduling of optimal reserves when the hourly forecast errors of wind energy and load are considered. The approach utilizes the stochastic security-constrained unit commitment (SCUC) model and a two-stage stochastic programming for the day-ahead scheduling of wind energy and conventional units with N - 1 contingencies. The effect of aggregated hourly demand (DR) response is considered as a means of mitigating transmission violations when uncertainties ...
Optimization of crews in post-earthquake electric power restoration
Guikema, S.D.; Xu, N.; Davidson, R.; Nozick, L.K.; Ertuğrul, Zehra (2006-12-01)
A mixed-integer nonlinear program is developed to help optimize post-earthquake electric power restoration, and it is applied to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) electric power transmission system. The model determines how many inspection, damage assessment, and repair crews to train and where to have them respond so as to minimize the average time each customer is without power. It is solved using a genetic algorithm, and is tightly coupled with a discrete event simulation model of the...
Optimization of operation temperatures and durations during solar thermal water splitting towards greater energy efficiencies
Yavuzyılmaz, Ezgi; Üner, Deniz; Kıncal, Serkan; Department of Chemical Engineering (2016)
Hydrogen production by solar thermal water splitting is an eco-friendly way of storing solar energy in chemical bonds. The most important obstacles for the viability and the commercialization of this technology are lower energy efficiencies and higher production costs compared to conventional hydrogen production ways such as steam reforming, coal gasification, and electrolysis of water. Two-step thermochemical hydrogen production by using solar energy is an alternative method to conventional hydrogen produc...

Optimization of ride comfort for vehicles equipped with passive and active hydro-pneumatic suspensions
Sağlam, Ferhat; Ünlüsoy, Yavuz Samim; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2016)
The main objective of this study is the optimization of ride comfort performance of vehicles equipped with Hydro-Pneumatic (HP) suspension systems. In order to improve ride comfort performance together with handling behavior as a constraint, active-passive, and unconnected-interconnected HP suspension systems are included in the study. The basic HP suspension model is developed and validated by experiments. Various HP suspension systems of increasing complexity are modeled, and their dynamic characteristics...
