Abstract: Carbon leakage is an obstacle to the implementation of carbon pricing, such as emission permit markets in a world open to trade. The greenhouse gas emission reduction induced domestically can be offset by a growing share of imported products with a higher carbon footprint. We investigate two policy… Read More

To support the massive connectivity and diverse energy management of different tier electricity loads, such as smart appliances, IoT sensors, and electric vehicles, etc, relying solely on radio frequency (RF) spectrum may be strained to fulfill the requirements due to the limited bandwidth, the wide interception range, and… Read More
Date/Time: Wednesday, September 22, 2021/ 12:00PM - 1:00PM MDT
Presenter: Dr. Fengyu Wang, Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at NMSU
The combined cycle power plants (CCPP) are gaining tractions in recent years due to lower natural gas prices and higher efficiency. CCPPs can also provide flexibility to relieve variability and uncertainties introduced by rapidly growing intermittent resources. Due to complex structure, CCPPs have nonconvex and nonlinear… Read More
