With increasing penetrations of PV generation (including other distributed energy resources), future distribution systems, which will be governed by faster dynamics and complex dispatch mechanisms, requiring novel estimation and control of distribution-located assets. Open Energy Data Initiative – System Integration (OEDI-SI) is currently developing key software tools, datasets novel distribution state estimation, control optimization, and transient event analyses. This initiative will enable users to have access to open-source data and algorithms along with ability to incorporate user-specific data to perform distribution-level analyses. More specifically, the focus of the effort is on developing distribution system state estimation (DSSE), distribution optimal power flow (D-OPF), and transient event analysis. In this tutorial we will provide an overview and hands-on training on utilizing the tools developed in OEDI-SI by multiple National Labs and DOE.
In this specific session, we would be exploring transient events’ analysis with EMT simulation tool to replicate events.
Dr. Suman Debnath completed his Ph.D. from Purdue University, West Lafayette, USA, in 2015 and bachelors and masters from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras in 2010. He has been at Oak Ridge National Laboratory for the past 7+ years. His research interests include applied mathematics for simulation and control of large-scale power electronics and power grids (including EMT simulations, HPC-enabled simulations, among others). He has led or co-led and been involved in 15+ million dollar grants with multiple industry, national lab, and academic collaborators. He has published 60+ publications.
