PhD student Vladimir Frolov presented his research at International Workshop on Electric Power Control Centers (EPCC 14)

EPCC Workshops provide a unique platform for information exchange among the industry professionals involved in technical, business, regulatory and financial aspects of system reliability and electricity markets. Workshop discussions focus on the latest developments in control center technologies, highlighting their impact on the most urgent challenges of power system operations and system planning. This year EPCC 14 took place in Wiesloch, Germany. Several topics were covered which are Impact of system resiliency on control center functions, Dynamic system performance monitoring and control, Next generation control centers/Generation and distribution control centers, Data modeling/Big data.

Vladimir gave presentation on the following topic at System Resiliency session:
Operational Aware Investments in Transmission Systems: Scenarios Generation, Security Analysis, FACTS Devices Installations for System Reinforcement

New operational aware approach for making investments in transmission systems was discussed with representatives from European System Operators and leading industrial vendors. Participation in such events is very helpful for PhD students as it allows to present their work getting feedback and talk to leading people in the field finding ways to move the work forward.
