Eugene G. Preston's Resume (& clients)
My IEEE 2015 Denver Power Engineering Society Panel Session and LOLE working group presentation.
Georgetown TX will get all their energy from wind and solar, using ERCOT as its 'battery'. Can all cities do the same as Georgetown? (no)
ERCOT 100% renewables requires a $6600 billion investment in batteries which is far too expensive to be a realistic goal.
Prof Mark Jacobson ref 1 and
ref 2 claims 100% renewables are possible. However, Mark's study lacks a reliability analysis.
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.
Here is my letter to the EPA concerning what I see in the future as we phase out coal.
Here are my comments to the PUCT project 42302 concerning LOLE as a measure of risk.
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.
This LOLP presentation shows how to create the COPT or capacity outage probability table.
The Integral Fast Reactor seems to have been one of the US government's best kept secrets.
Articles on: 2015 Energy and CO2 and Greenland and Antarctica Ice Loss.
Voltage Regulation theory presented by Kashem Muttaqi and Keith Elder at the
University of Wollongong.
Einstein's Assumption Fails A Simple Test, which Relativists are in denial they have a problem.
My essay to the Gravity Foundation on Einstein's violation of a conservation law, which the Relativists have rejected.
