Abstract:
The energy transition combined with a shrinking workforce poses a great challenge for maintaining a reliable power grid. At the data science department of Alliander DNO we combine physical models, machine learning techniques and optimization techniques to model and predict the effects of the energy transition. We also investigate other subjects, such automatic network design, AI-driven investment planning and electricity storage control.
