LunCH Lecture – Mathematics: Marieke Kootte

The electricity landscape is changing. More production is generated by renewable energy resources and the consumption is increasing due to, for example, data centres and electric vehicles. This puts extra pressure on system operators to maintain a stable power grid. The simulations used by system operators to ensure stable power systems are becoming larger, more complex, and therefore computationally more expensive.

At first, system operators remained reserved and sceptical when we introduced them to numerical techniques which could solve the simulations in a fraction of the current runtime. However, the increasing pressure on the grid has recently convinced them that our methods are of practical value. In this presentation, I will give an overview of the methods we have been developing to solve very large electricity networks efficiently.
