Contents:The current energy transition leads to many changes in the energy as well as the mobility system. In this course, we study algorithmic techniques to optimize the performance of future energy systems and discuss some topics from sustainable public transportation. We discuss Mixed Integer Linear Programming (MIP) formulations, branch-and-cut, simulation, planning under uncertainty and robustness. Students learn how to apply these techniques to different optimization problem related to energy systems, such as network design, unit commitment, load flow, demand response, and storage optimization. Moreover, we discuss question around electric buses and environmental friendly bus driving. The topics in this course are related to recent research in the Algorithms and Complexity group.
Course form:lectures, simulation assignment, discussion and presentation of papers.
Minimum effort to qualify for 2nd chance exam:Om aan de aanvullende toets te mogen meedoen moet de oorspronkelijke uitslag minstens 4 zijn.
