Power system simulation and optimisation
The power system simulation and optimisation team is developing software for the energy engine, applying this to the project’s case studies, applying multi-objective optimisation and analysing the benefits that this brings. They are also developing learning materials and a web interface for their software.

Energy engineering research
|Quantifying the System-Level Resilience of Thermal Power Generation to Extreme Temperatures and Water Scarcity
|This article introduces the fundamental engineering models of thermal power plants' cooling systems. A system-level quantification methodology is then proposed, which also introduces a multicoordinate resilience-oriented metric that assesses system vulnerability through the concepts of conditional value-at-risk and its rate of change in response to changes in the considered weather conditions.
|Integrated Energy-Water Model for Interdependent Storage, Run-of-River and Pump Hydropower
|The contribution of this work is the explicit quantification in cost and energy terms of the value of capturing short-term interdependencies between hydropower plants associated with the use and release of water by upstream plants.
|Flexibility in Sustainable Electricity Systems: Multivector and Multisector Nexus Perspectives
|The flexibility to intelligently use and invest in resources that go beyond the power system (e.g., other energy vectors such as heat, gas, or water dams) can be extremely valuable from the perspective of sustainable development.
