Location: 230 Sherrerd Hall
Phone Number: 609-258-5373
Email Address: powell@princeton.edu

Research Description:

Models for the design and control of a broad range of problems in energy systems, emphasizing problems that involve decisions and uncertainty. A major focus has been the study of high penetrations of renewables, and the design and control of energy storage systems. We are also working on models for driverless fleets of electric vehicles, uncertainty models of wind, solar and electricity prices, and the economics of energy portfolios.
