Study Group on Mathematics in Energy Systems

 05 - 07 Dec 2018
 ICMS, Bayes Centre, 47 Potterrow Edinburgh

Scientific Organiser:

  • Dawn Wasley, ICMS

Some of Britain’s best mathematical scientists tackled some of the hardest problems in the energy systems industry. We attracted problems across the energy systems piece - from storage, network supply, integration etc. This was the second Study Group on Energy Systems. The first was held in early 2018 at the University of Sussex and addressed problems in electric vehicle battery degradation, determining real time power systems inertia in the grid and issuing efficient instructions for national grid management.
