Optimizing power systems for cost efficient, resilient and reliable operations

Power engineering is concerned with the generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity over electric power network, which is arguably one of the largest engineering systems in the world. The size of electric utility industry exceeds billions of dollars and its utilization in a cost-effective manner while providing reliable accessibility is extremely important.

Power system planning is a hierarchical decision-making environment. We use operations research techniques to obtain fast, reliable and accurate solutions for short, medium and long terms planning problems in power systems optimization.
