A multi-disciplinary team led by CCEE researchers Drs. Sankar Arumugam (PI), Kumar Mahinthakumar (Co-PI), and Joe DeCarolis (Co-PI), along with Dr. Ning Lu (Co-PI, Electrical and Computer Engineering) recently received a $1.2M National Science Foundation grant to understand how seasonal to interannual climate forecasts could be utilized to improve water and power systems management. A paradigm shift in water and power systems management is targeted that promotes various proactive strategies to ensure the reliability of both systems.
The PIs will collaborate with Dr. Sarat Sreepathi from Oak Ridge National Laboratory to develop a visual analytic framework for co-optimization of water and power systems by utilizing climate forecasts. Using the framework, the study proposes to reduce the operational costs of water and power systems while employing targeted strategies to increase renewable power generation sources.
