I am an energy researcher and analyst at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. My interests are power system operation, optimization, high-performance computing, and programming language theory.
Open Source Power System Production Cost Modeling in Julia
Operating a power system on a day to day basis involves optimizing the operation of the given energy system. Modeling these operations requires solving a Mixed Integer Linear Programming problem. In this talk, we will present methods for solving a production cost model in Julia and JuMP using PowerSimulations.jl
Why writing C interfaces in Julia is so easy*
Julia allows interfacing with shared libraries using
ccall. This allows calling into compiled binaries that could be written in any language that exposes the C ABI. In this talk, I'll describe best practices to follow for interfacing with C libraries.
