Title: Computational Needs for Bulk Power System Operation and Planning
Tongxin Zheng, ISO New England

Friday, March 29, 11am-12pm, ITEB 336
Abstract: Reliability and Economics are two major aspects of power system operation and planning. With the introduction of market mechanism, they are being tightly integrated in many processes in operations and planning, creating challenging mathematical problems in both operations research and micro economics. The talk identifies the critical problems in these areas, and summarizes existing solution methodologies as well as future computational needs under the ISO managed market environment.

Short Bio: Tongxin Zheng received his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Clemson University in 1999. He was an application engineer with ABB and was responsible for the development of commercial unit commitment software. Presently, he is a technical manager at ISO New England. His major responsibility includes the developing optimization model for the electricity market design, and providing technical consultation to market and system operations. He has been involved in many market design and implementation projects at ISO New England including Standard Market Design, Ancillary Service Market, and Forward Capacity Market.
