Reliability Of Wind Power Scenarios And Stochastic Unit Commitment Cost, Didem Sari, Sarah M. Ryan Jan 2017

Reliability Of Wind Power Scenarios And Stochastic Unit Commitment Cost, Didem Sari, Sarah M. Ryan

Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Technical Reports and White Papers

Probabilistic wind power scenarios constitute a crucial input for stochastic day-ahead unit commitment in power systems with deep penetration of wind generation. To minimize the expected cost, the scenario time series of wind power amounts available should accurately represent the stochastic process for available wind power as it is estimated on the day ahead. The high computational demands of stochastic programming motivate a search for ways to evaluate scenarios without extensively simulating the stochastic unit commitment procedure. Reliability of wind power scenario sets can be assessed by statistical verification approaches. In this study, we examine the relationship between the statistical ...


California Statewide Plug-In Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Assessment, Marc Melaina, Michael S. Helwig May 2014

California Statewide Plug-In Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Assessment, Marc Melaina, Michael S. Helwig

Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Technical Reports and White Papers

The California Statewide Plug-In Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Assessment conveys to interested parties the Energy Commission’s conclusions, recommendations, and intentions with respect to plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) infrastructure development. There are several relatively low-risk and high-priority electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) deployment options that will encourage PEV sales and increase electric miles (e-miles) driven by PEVs. These include homes where PEVs exist; workplaces and multiunit dwellings where management has indicated support for PEVs and surveys indicate a high likelihood of use of charging infrastructure; garaged fleets with significant numbers of PEVs; and airports and locations near public transportation, provided certain ...


Targeting Net Zero Energy At Marine Corps Air Station Miramar: Assessment And Recommendations, Samuel Booth, John Barnett, Kari Burman, Joshua Hambrick, Michael S. Helwig, Robert Westby Dec 2010

Targeting Net Zero Energy At Marine Corps Air Station Miramar: Assessment And Recommendations, Samuel Booth, John Barnett, Kari Burman, Joshua Hambrick, Michael S. Helwig, Robert Westby

Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Technical Reports and White Papers

In 2008, the Department of Defense (DoD) and Department of Energy (DOE) defined a joint initiative to address military energy use by identifying specific actions to reduce energy demand and increase use of renewable energy on DoD installations. A Task Force comprised of representatives from the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), the four military Services, DOE’s Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP), and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) was established. In light of DoD priorities, early attention was given to the possibility of net zero energy military installations (NZEI), that is, installations that would meet their energy ...
