Many organizations use optimization within some part of their business. Some companies, such as Advanced Microgrid Solution (AMS), use optimization as an integral part of their solution. AMS provides a software-as-a-service product that optimizes the operation of a clients’ energy storage assets in order to reduce their electric bill, while also meeting contractual obligation to provide capacity to the electric utility. AMS aggregates a number of distributed assets to provide the utility with a virtual power plant that can be used to reduce system peak load. Given the dynamic nature of the electric grid, the problem needs to be solved every 5-10 minutes, requiring a robust, reliable, and scalable solution to manage continual growth.
This 40-minute recording will focus on how AMS integrates Gurobi into their software solutions, including:
This topic is presented by Andrew Martinez from AMS. Andrew is a member of the Data Science and Optimization Team at Advanced Microgrid Solutions (AMS). Prior to joining AMS, he was building optimization models to size generation equipment for campus-scale microgrids as well as large-scale optimization models to answer energy policy questions. He holds a MS in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University and a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University.
