Background and activities
I am working in the research group called "Electricity Markets and Energy Systems Planning" at the Department of Electric Power Engineering, NTNU. My research interests are primarily focused on the integration of renewable energy in the energy system and power system economics. My research activities include:
Power system balancing
Power market analysis
Investment planning of transmission systems, including a future North Sea Grid
Large-scale integration of renewable energy sources in Europe
Generation scheduling in hydro-thermal power systems
Flexibility operation in Distribution systems
