Energy systems and mathematical scientists: study group 5-7 December

Posted on 03/10/2018

A study group enabling organisations in energy systems to work on their challenges with some of the brightest minds in mathematical sciences.

KTN, alongside the University of Edinburgh and International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS), is hosting a study group enabling organisations in energy systems to let some of the brightest minds in mathematical sciences work on specific challenges in their sector.

The three-day study group will allow energy systems organisations to access UK researchers, with the aim of solving problems from all over the energy landscape: generation, storage, transmission, energy efficiency etc.

The study group will be held from 5-7 December in Edinburgh at ICMS. It follows on from the successful and well-attended inaugural study group for energy systems and mathematical sciences held earlier this year. The group explored electric vehicle battery degradation with Williams Advanced Engineering, spectral analysis of power system frequency and algorithms to devise optimal power system control actions with National Grid.

We are refining problems at the moment, but we are seeking expressions of interest at this stage to a) pose a problem or b) taking part as a research attendee.

Problem posers

  • Are you a UK company working in the energy sector?
  • Do you have challenges which you would like the brightest minds in the mathematical sciences to have a go at solving?

If so, please get in touch. The study group is free for UK companies to take part in. All we ask at this stage is a half-page description of:

  • Your organisation’s details
  • Details of your challenge
  • What tackling the challenge could enable for your organisation

Problem solvers

Are you a researcher working in a UK university who would like to get your hands on real data and great problems? If so, please drop us a note with details of:

  • Your name and institution
  • Your area of research

Please send challenge submissions and expressions of interest to attend to matt.butchers@ktn-uk.org and chris.dent@ed.ac.uk by Friday 26 October.
