Mathematical modelling of future energy systems
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
Future energy networks will feature greatly increased interaction between heat, transport and electricity networks, as well as much greater storage, active demand, and stochastic-output renewable generation in electricity systems; moreover, it is likely that inter-continental scale networks will be developed to link from renewable sources (e.g. Saharan solar and hydro from Europe's mountain areas) with demand centres. This presentation will discuss the modelling challenges posed by the changing nature of electrical power systems, in terms of real-time control, market structures, and supply adequacy risk modelling.
