Eugene G. Preston's Resume (& clients)

Professional:
A Direct High Speed Calculation Procedure For Determining LOLE, LOLH, and EUE For Fossil, Wind, and Solar Generation With A Suggested Procedure For Also Including Transmission Constraints - WECC video 1 - file 1 and repeated to the IEEE video 2 - file 2 which also has study results.
Here is why it's so important to keep the grid reliable, i.e. maintaining an LOLE<=0.1 days per year.
Where are we headed here in Texas with our long range resource planning efforts?
Dissertation on composite generation/transmission reliability (1.3 Mb) Appendices A B C D and Bibliography and Defense
IEEE paper on generation reliability modeling with transmission constraints
IEEE paper on transmission reliability modeling for multiple line outages (zipflow)
My dissertation also revealed a way to perform Piecewise Quadratic time domain analysis.
