NM SMART Grid Center Project Highlights from Year 3

Every year the New Mexico SMART Grid Center submits three highlights from the previous project year to the National Science Foundation. This year's highlights recognize "DC Street" at NMSU, seed award results from NMT, and the Explora Science Communication Fellowship program. Below are overviews of what these outstanding project team members are working on - summarized in 250 words or less.

Exploiting Symmetry in Large-Scale Optimization and Control

Abstract: This talk will present theoretical and algorithmic results on exploiting symmetry to reduce the computational complexity large-scale control and optimization problems. First, we will show how symmetry can be used to reduce the memory complexity of explicit solutions of optimization problems. Second, we will show how symmetry can be used to reduce the memory and computational complexity of an alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM) optimization algorithm.

Github Training Webinar

Abstract: An increasing number of researchers and research teams are using distributed version control systems like Git to enable efficient collaboration around and sharing of analytic code, software tools, and documentation. Whether you are developing analysis code, developing a manuscript in LaTeX, building a web interface for your project, or writing your dissertation you can use Git to organize and document your development process and systematically integrate and test the contributions by your team.

OPAL-RT Bootcamp

Presenters: Olga Lavrova, New Mexico State University, Hamed Nademi, New Mexico State University, Fengyu Wang, New Mexico State University

Abstract: This training will provide an introduction to MATLAB, Simulink toolbox, and Real-time simulation using OPAL-RT Simulator. One week prior to the training students will receive a list of required pre-coursework which instructors will build upon in the December 18th webinar.
