DTU CEE Summer School

DTU CEE Summer School 2019

We are pleased to announce that the 4th DTU CEE Summer School (16-21 June 2019) is now open for applications. The focus of this summer school will be on "Data-driven analytics and optimization for energy systems". The venue will be Lyngby campus of the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), 12 km North of Copenhagen.

We invite PhD and MSc students, postdocs and researchers in industry to submit their applications by March 15, 2019 through our webpage: http://www.energy-markets-school.dk/

DTU CEE Summer School 2019 brings together academics and industry professionals from around the world, in an intensive 5-day course, where they learn about the latest developments in data-driven optimization and methods for energy systems, connect, and exchange ideas. Distinguished lecturers from the US and Europe, excelling both in research and teaching, are invited to give 4-hour lectures both providing the fundamentals and introducing advanced topics in their field. Every lecture will be followed by a 2-hour hands-on exercise session.

The topics that the DTU CEE Summer School 2019 will cover, and the lecturers are:
• “A Marketplace for Data”, Munther Dahleh (MIT)
• “The Opportunities and Challenges of Mathematical Optimization for Data Science”, Dolores Romero Morales (Copenhagen Business School)
• “Data‐Driven Distributionally Robust Optimization”, Johanna Mathieu (University of Michigan)
• “Data‐Driven Optimization in Power Systems”, Andrea Simonetto (IBM Ireland)
• “Introduction to Statistical and Machine Learning”, Hélène Le Cadre (VITO/EnergyVille)
• “Data‐Driven Control in Power Distribution Grids”, Saverio Bolognani (ETH Zurich)
• “Data‐Driven Methods for Power System Security Assessment”, Spyros Chatzivasileiadis (DTU)
• “Statistical and Machine Learning for Forecasting”, Pierre Pinson (DTU)
• “Distributed Optimization”, Jalal Kazempour (DTU)

The applicants are invited to submit a motivation letter by March 15, 2019 via our website: http://www.energy-markets-school.dk/
The successful applicants will be informed by March 22, and requested to complete the registration process by April 10, 2019. The goal of this motivation letter (2 pages at most) is to ensure that the scientific level of summer school will be high, and this event will be eventually fruitful for all participants.

In addition, we have two MOSEK scholarships, and the awardees will be eventually selected based on motivation letters. Please note that the awardees will be announced during the event, so all successful applicants are expected to complete the registration process by April 10. The registration fee of awardees will be reimbursed after the event.

The registration fee of successful applicants will be:
• Students: 500 euro
• Non-students: 800 euro

A 6-night accommodation with shared triple rooms is available at the cost of extra 250 euro. Please check webpage for more information.

We will issue 2.5 ECTS to those participants who will submit by mid August a thorough report on all hands-on exercises during the event.

DTU CEE Summer School started as an initiative of the Energy Analytics & Markets (ELMA) group of Center for Electric Power and Energy (CEE) in 2016. Sponsored by Mosek ApS, EES-UETP, and the CITIES project, the last three summer schools 2016-2018 have been widely successful. Attracting about 55 attendees each year and with distinguished invited lecturers from the US and Europe, they fully covered the attendees’ expectations. Summer school 2018 received a very positive feedback by all participants. 100% of the participants would recommend DTU CEE summer school to others. The videos of all the lectures of the DTU CEE Summer School 2018 are available online here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiXnS2QbefSshsXQvieK_vA/videos

We are looking forward to welcoming you at DTU!

Best regards,
The organizing committee

Summer School 2018
Lyngby Campus:
Modern Optimization in Energy (June 24-29, 2018)

The DTU CEE Summer School 2018 aimed to give participants practical experience with the latest developments in optimization for energy systems. Participants of the course :

  • Gained practical experience with optimization techniques applied to energy systems
  • Saw relevant examples of these techniques used in cutting-edge research
  • Sharpened their peer review and feedback skills by reviewing other participants’ work

The summer school focused in particular on optimal power flow, distributionally robust optimization, convex relaxations, data-driven methods, integrated energy systems and consumer-centric electricity markets.

Risø Campus:
Quantifying the quality of Smart Energy Solutions via Testing (August 27-31, 2018)

During the last week of August DTU CEE held a summer school for PhD students with participants from Turkey, Denmark, Germany and Austria.  
The topic of the summer school was “Quantifying the quality of Smart Energy Solutions via Testing”. Participants learned about Simulation and Hardware Testing, Statistical Design of Experiments, and Industrial testing & certification. During the week, students implemented their own test design and carried out experiments in a Co-simulation environment, a distributed systems testbed (SIMLAB), and a full-scale Smart Grid Laboratory (SYSLAB of PowerLabDK).
 
The summer school was organized in context of the ERIGrid (www.erigrid.eu) on interconnecting smart grid research infrastructures.

Summer School 2017
Modern Challenges in Power System Operation and Electricity Markets - An Optimization Perspective (June 12th - 16th, 2017)

With 56 participants (from universities and enterprises, and from all over the world) and 10 world-renowned lecturers, this event was even larger than the previously organized school. The summer school focused on advanced optimization techniques, e.g. convex relaxation and stochastic optimization, as well as game theory and decision making, and their application to the electricity markets. Students received tutorials on the application and interpretation of these techniques, and used their skills to complete group projects. Finally, students were asked to disseminate their findings to other students through presentations and peer review. The overall evaluation from 56 participants was as follows: excellent: 67.9%, good: 32.1%, fair: 0%, poor: 0%.

Summer School 2016
Uncertainty in Electricity Markets and System Operation (July 4 to July 8, 2016)

With 48 participants (from universities and enterprises, and from all over the world) and 10 world-renowned lecturers, this event was one of the largest summer school courses in EES-UETP history. The summer school focused on advanced optimization techniques, e.g., stochastic, interval and robust optimization, and their applications to energy systems. Students received tutorials on the application and interpretation of these techniques, and used their skills to complete group projects. Finally, students were asked to disseminate their findings to other students through presentations and peer review. The overall evaluation from 48 participants was as follows: excellent: 53.2%, good: 42.5%, fair: 4.3%, poor: 0%.
