Title

Computationally Efficient Solvers for Power System Applications

Abstract

If power system time-domain simulations could run in real-time, then system operators would have situational awareness to implement on-line control and avoid cascading failures, significantly improving power system reliability. Many power system assessment tools, such as power flow and short circuit analysis, require very large sparse matrix computations. As power systems continue to grow, there is a greater computational complexity involved in solving these large linear systems within reasonable time. We are expanding the current work in fast linear solvers to develop power system specific methods that show potential for accurate solutions in nearly-linear run times.
