Clayton Barrows is a member of the Forecasting and Modeling Group at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. His research focuses on improving the technical and economic efficiency of energy systems through advanced computation and analysis. At NREL, Clayton leads a team in developing and utilizing energy and infrastructure systems models to gain new insights into pathways towards system modernization. In his research, Clayton draws upon deep experience in applying the tools of network science and optimization to improve the fidelity and scalability of infrastructure systems models. He has applied these techniques to inform policy in studies and applications around the world.
The Scalable Integrated Infrastructure Planning (SIIP) initiative at NREL has developed a set of high-performance power system simulation capabilities with PowerSystems.jl and PowerSimulations.jl. This talk will demonstrate these capabilities with interactive examples using large realistic datasets, and provide theoretical background for software design choices.
