About this book

Energy is one of the world`s most challenging problems, and power systems are an important aspect of energy related issues. This handbook contains state-of-the-art contributions on power systems modeling and optimization. The book is separated into two volumes with six sections, which cover the most important areas of energy systems. The first volume covers the topics operations planning and expansion planning while the second volume focuses on transmission and distribution modeling, forecasting in energy, energy auctions and markets, as well as risk management. The contributions are authored by recognized specialists in their fields and consist in either state-of-the-art reviews or examinations of state-of-the-art developments. The articles are not purely theoretical, but instead also discuss specific applications in power systems.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Provide an overview over the state-of-the art developments in operations research applications towards power systems. … I recommend the book for power system researchers and professionals who are interested in incorporating optimization techniques into power systems applications. It can also be a good start for operations research scientists who are interested in power system applications. … is more suitable for students of Operational Research, Mathematics, Physics or Systems Engineering at the Masters level … . a welcome addition to the Energy literature … .” (Josef Kallrath, Energy Systems, Vol. 2, 2011)
