    Speaker: Nathan Dahlin, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

    Talk Title: Pricing Randomness, Risk and Flexibility: Market Design For a Smarter Grid

    Series: Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things

    Abstract: The current moment finds the world's energy infrastructure at the threshold of rapid transformation. Today's power systems are defined by increasing penetration of renewable and distributed energy resources on the supply side, and the emergence of flexible loads on the demand side. Clearly, market institutions have a crucial role to play in this transformation as well. Through market analysis, design and optimization, this talk will explore how such institutions can evolve to address four key characteristics of modern power systems: uncertainty, risk, flexibility and strategic behavior.

    First, given that user flexibility is considered one of the most valuable, yet still untapped resources available for accommodating the transition to renewables, an explicit market for flexibility is designed and analyzed. Users report preferences for service over a finite time horizon to a scheduler which shapes the aggregate demand profile to the output of a renewable generator, while minimizing the costs associated with resorting to thermal generation. Social welfare properties of competitive equilibria and an accompanying mechanism are studied. As the competitive equilibria arise from a convex relaxation of the binary constrained load scheduling problem, an interpretation of equilibrium schedules as giving a stochastic method for generating an optimal schedule in the large economy limit is also examined. Next, focusing on the transmission component of the power grid, rather than arrange advance supply and account for real time imbalances in supply and demand separately, a two-stage, stochastic market clearing paradigm is considered. Probabilistic information regarding renewable generation is used to couple day ahead and expected real time recourse decisions, increasing efficiency. A two-stage mechanism is developed for a two-sided exchange with primary and ancillary generation and demand response, implementing a sequential competitive equilibrium (SCEq). Allowing for strategic behavior, sufficient conditions are provided for the existence of efficient sequential Nash equilibria.


    Biography: Nathan Dahlin received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering in 2008 and 2020, respectively, and the M.A. degree in applied mathematics in 2020 from the University of Southern California (USC), Los Angeles, CA, USA. In 2021 he completed the Ph.D degree in electrical engineering at USC, under advisement of Prof. Rahul Jain. From 2008 to 2015 he worked as a research and development engineer at Audyssey Laboratories in Los Angeles. He is currently a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, under advisement of Prof. Subhonmesh Bose.

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Sutanu Sarkar, University of California at San Diego

    Talk Title: Wakes in the Natural Environment

    Abstract: Environmental wakes are produced by flows past structures which are engineered (e.g., oceanic submersibles, aerial vehicles, wind turbines, urban structures) or in nature (hills, mountain ranges, islands, seamounts). These wakes impact drag on the incident flow as well as transport of material, pollutants and environmental constituents. We will illustrate wake flow physics with a few examples studied using high-resolution simulation. The wake of a blunt object such as a disk will be contrasted with a streamlined object such as a prolate spheroid with respect to mean velocity, turbulence levels, flow instabilities and coherent structures. We will discuss both a constant density fluid and a density-stratified fluid where buoyancy inevitably alters the wake of the body. We will also present an example from nature, an oceanic current past a submerged hill, where we find synchronization of wake vortices with subharmonics of the oscillating tide and also states of high drag.



    Biography: Sutanu Sarkar received his B. Tech. from IIT Bombay, M. S. from Ohio State University and Ph. D. from Cornell University. After 4 years as a staff scientist at ICASE, NASA Langley Research Center, he joined UCSD where he currently holds the Blasker Chair of Environmental Engineering, is a Distinguished Professor in the department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE), and is an affiliate professor at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. He was Chair of MAE from 2009-2014. He has broad interests in the simulation and modeling of turbulent flows. He has worked in problems concerning the environment, energy, aerospace and propulsion. His current research interests are turbulence and mixing in the ocean and atmosphere, wakes and boundary layers of engineered structures in the natural environment, and renewable energy. He has received a NASA group achievement award (1994), the Bessel Award from the Humboldt Foundation (2001), and was elected Fellow, American Physical Society (2006), Associate Fellow, AIAA (2009) and Fellow, ASME (2010). He is an associate editor of JFM.

    Title: Enabling Efficient Execution of In Situ Workflows

    Abstract:

    Advances in high-performance computing (HPC) allow scientific simulations to run at an ever-increasing scale, generating a large amount of data that needs to be analyzed over time. Conventionally, the simulation outputs the entire simulated data set to the file system for later post-processing.
    Unfortunately, the slow growth of I/O technologies compared to the computing capability of present-day processors causes an I/O bottleneck of post-processing as saving data to storage is not as fast as data is generated. According to data-centric models, a new processing paradigm has recently emerged, called in situ, where simulation data is analyzed on-the-fly to reduce the expensive I/O cost of saving massive data for post-processing. Since an in situ workflow usually consists of
    co-located tasks running concurrently on the same resources in an iterative manner, the execution yields complicated behaviors that create challenges in evaluating the efficiency of an in situ run. To enable efficient execution of in situ workflows, this proposal proposes a theoretical framework that models the efficiency of in situ execution for evaluating the performance of in situ workflows. By extending the proposed performance model to resource-aware performance indicators, we introduce a method to assess resource usage, resource allocation, and resource provisioning for in situ workflow ensembles. In support of the thesis, this work serves as a prerequisite of evaluating in situ scheduling decisions.

    Title: Mining and leveraging temporal structures of human behavior in Online Platforms

    Abstract:

    With the development of technology in recent years, detailed data on human temporal behavior has become available. Many methods have been proposed for mining these human dynamic behavioral data, which have provided valuable insights for research, especially in computational social science. However, most methods analyze only sequential behavior and do not comprehensively consider inter-temporal information such as time intervals between users' actions. In this proposal, we leverage the time intervals of actions to understand human behavior from a mid-term perspective. We first argue that the engagement analysis without considering time interval differences among individuals may return a biased result and propose a method to mitigate those biases. Then we also propose an embedding-based approach to incorporate inter-temporal information into human behavior analysis, which enables us to mine the temporal context of action in a unified manner. Our proposal will demonstrate the importance of inter-temporal information, especially in the application of computational social science.
