Nan Duan, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Gives CURENT Power and Energy Seminar on Fri., Feb. 26

Dr. Nan Duan, Research Staff Member at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and former CURENT student, will present the CURENT Power and Energy Seminar (ECE 496 and 691) on Friday, February 26 from 1:00 pm to 1:50 pm. The seminar will be available via ZOOM. The ZOOM link will be sent to CURENT students and faculty through email. Contact Wendy if you need a link.

Presenter: Dr. Nan Duan, Research Staff Member, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

Title: Agile Co-simulation for Cyber and Energy System Security

Abstract: This talk will provide an overview of the Agile Co-simulation for Cyber and Energy System Security (ACCESS) platform that is being developed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. ACCESS is an effort for streamlining cyber-physical modeling of modern energy systems. Use cases including Distributed Energy Resource (DER) control, Advance Metering Infrastructure (AMI) modeling and Collaborative Autonomy (CA) algorithm will be introduced. In addition to cyber-physical modeling, ACCESS also facilitates High-performance computing (HPC) enabled transmission and distribution (T&D) co-simulation. An HPC implementation of T&D co-simulation will also be presented as a precursor for large scale transmission, distribution & communication (TDC) co-simulation.

Bio: Nan Duan received his B.S. in automation from Beijing University of Technology, Beijing, China, M.Eng. in control engineering from Beihang University, Beijing, China and Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, TN, USA, in 2010, 2013 and 2018, respectively. He was a research assistant at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, TN, USA from 2015 to 2017 and a research fellow at GE Global Research, Niskayuna, NY, USA from May to Jul. 2017. He joined Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Jan. 2018 as a postdoc and was converted to a research staff member in Jun. 2019. He is currently leading (PI) a cross-project effort on energy system co-simulation and a DOE AGM project on load modeling. His research interests include power system modeling, high-performance computing, parallel-in-time methods, nonlinear systems, numerical integration methods, machine learning and synchrophasor applications.
