ISO-NE’s research recognized internationally by INFORMS

Paper outlines innovative model for unit commitment as system uncertainty increases

A research paper by ISO New England’s Business Architecture and Technology (BAT) team was among the finalists for 2015’s prestigious Best Publication Award in Energy from the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS). The paper, “Adaptive Robust Optimization for the Security Constrained Unit Commitment Problem,” describes the pioneering application of a powerful risk management modeling tool in the electricity industry. The paper won honorable mention (second place) out of numerous journal articles from operations researchers and professionals around the globe. Originally published in IEEE Transactions on Power Systems, the journal article is having significant influence; it’s been referenced by researchers in almost 300 other academic and industry publications so far.

ISO-NE invited to share research and experiences at influential 2015 IEEE Power & Energy Society General Meeting

ISO engineers make strong showing, receive accolades on research related to new technologies for “Powering Up the Next Generation”

As in past years, several ISO New England power system engineers were asked to share their expertise, findings, and business-case experience at the 2015 IEEE Power & Energy Society General Meeting in July. The Power & Energy Society (PES) is a highly regarded international association for leaders in the field of electric power engineering and is part of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)—the world's largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence. Through their participation in the PES, ISO employees help expand the knowledge base and advance the industry.

ISO-NE updates real-time fuel mix chart on iso-ne.com, ISO to Go, with enhanced market offer data

Better represents fuels being used by dual-fuel power plants

With the launch of the Energy Market Offer Flexibility Project during December 2014, dual-fuel generators are now able to submit supply offers that specify the percentage of each fuel they plan to use during the upcoming hour—called “blended offers.” The market changes are designed to give generators the flexibility to represent their cost for each fuel in their supply offers, helping to ensure that when they must switch fuels, their costs are accurately represented—an incentive for them to perform as needed.

New England power system performed well through winter 2014/2015

Now that the winter of 2014/2015 is one for the history books, this much we know is certain: no two New England winters are alike. A confluence of regional and global factors, advance planning and preparations, and delayed cold weather during winter 2014/2015 helped alleviate the operational issues and record-high prices seen during the previous winter.

Europe braces for unprecedented dip in solar generation during eclipse; US system operators take note

Updated on Friday, March 20, 2015 at 10:33AM by Registered CommenterISO New England

The March 20 eclipse will remove up to 35 GW of solar power from European grids; ISO-NE watching closely as regional PV growth continues

An historic event will unfold overseas in late March. For the first time, operators of large, synchronized electric power systems will have to manage a potentially sizeable loss of generation caused by a solar eclipse. Starting the morning of March 20 at 7:40 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), the output from Europe’s solar photovoltaic (PV) systems will drop off—then ramp up again—as the moon blots out the sun’s light in rolling two-hour periods across the area.
