Durham Energy Risk Day: Risk and Reliability Modelling of Energy Systems

Lindisfarne Centre, St Aiden's College

Registration Deadline : Midnight Wednesday 23rd October

This meeting will bring together researchers in the field to present state-of-the-art methods in risk and reliability modelling, including both engineers working in energy systems, and also mathematicians and statisticians with key relevant expertise and an interest in energy system applications.

Registration Deadline : Midnight Wednesday 23rd October

This meeting will bring together researchers in the field to present state-of-the-art methods in risk and reliability modelling, including both engineers working in energy systems, and also mathematicians and statisticians with key relevant expertise and an interest in energy system applications. The scope of the meeting includes probabilistic risk assessment and associated statistical modelling, the broad range of analytical techniques which may be required for assessing and mitigating system stability risk (particularly major disturbances), and economic risk as seen by operators (for instance network planning for renewables integration and real time system operation).

 

Risk and reliability modelling is an area of ever increasing importance in energy systems. This is due to both the advent of new technologies (e.g. high penetrations of renewable generation, and increased storage and other parts of the smartgrid paradigm), and increased pressure for energy systems to be run in a 'lean' manner (which often requires planning and operational decisions to be risk-based, as opposed to relying on more traditional conservative heuristic approaches.)
