How to Better Harness the Power of the Wind

windmillsURI Professor Haibo He recently co-authored an article on how to optimize wind power for use, even when it’s not blowing. The researchers proposed a day-ahead economic dispatch model for wind-integrated power systems. It’s an algorithm designed to consider both the next day’s planned energy use along with real-time energy use.

He and his team plan to further develop advanced optimization and control methods needed to integrate renewable energy sources into what researchers call the smart grid.
