Introduction
I am a Senior Research Assistant at The Swiss Institute of Technology (ETH) Zürich focusing on transmission and dispatch models of the electric power system, integration of renewable energy, and interdisciplinary macro-energy system modeling frameworks.

Article
This paper presents a techno-economic optimization model to analyze the economic viability of a photovoltaic battery (PVB) system for different residential customer groups in Switzerland clustered based on their annual electricity consumption, rooftop size, annual irradiation and location. The simulations for a static investment model are carried o...
Article
Full-text available
Energy systems are transitioning toward sustainable power generation largely due to new policies that are motivated by climate and renewable generation targets. This transition is felt throughout the entire economy and is affecting the long and short term operations of the energy system. In the last decade, the research community has made significa...
Conference Paper
Most studies involving the use of hydropower in an electric power system tend to consider the point of view of the system operator even though under liberalized markets in Europe, the operation of hydro units is set by the owner to maximize their profits. Such studies also often neglect uncertainties related to hydropower operation and instead assu...

This paper presents a techno-economic optimization model to analyze the economic viability of a PV-battery system for different customer groups in Switzerland clustered based on their annual electricity consumption, rooftop size, annual irradiation and location. The simulations for a static investment model are carried out for years 2020-2050 and a...
Preprint
This paper presents a static generation expansion planning formulation in which operational and investment decisions for a wide range of technologies are co-optimized from a centralized perspective. The location, type and quantity of new generation and storage capacities are provided such that system demand and flexibility requirements are satisfie...
Article
The addition of stochastic renewable resources within modern electricity markets creates a need for more flexible generation assets and for appropriate mechanisms to ensure capacity adequacy. To assess both of these issues, more cross-platform analysis is needed that can evaluate short-term reliability concerns, medium-term dispatch and price conce...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The conversion of existing multi-circuit HVAC transmission infrastructure to pure HVDC or hybrid AC/DC overhead lines is becoming a predominant measure to accelerate grid reinforcements. As the visual impact is identical, acceptance is assumed to be higher compared to a new construction. This study investigates operational benefits of a future hybr...
Article
Adding large solar photovoltaic (PV) resources into an electric grid influences the flexibility characteristics of its net load profile. The dispatch of the existing generation fleet changes as it adjusts to accommodate the new net load. This study categorizes and defines these flexibility characteristics. It utilizes a unit commitment and dispatch...
Article
The US power sector is a leading contributor of emissions that affect air quality and climate. It also requires a lot of water for cooling thermoelectric power plants. Although these impacts affect ecosystems and human health unevenly in space and time, there has been very little quantification of these environmental trade-offs on decision-relevant...
Conference Paper
The intermittency of wind and solar power and the mismatch between when they are available and when demand is high have hindered the expansion of these two primary renewable resources. The goal of this research is to analyze an integrated energy system (named DSWiSS for dispatchable solar wind storage system) that includes a novel configuration of...

Conference Paper
Currently, wind and solar technologies only generate 0.77% and 0.014% of the U.S. electricity consumption, respectively [1]. Though only a small portion of total U.S. electricity production, both sources have seen significant growth recently. For instance, Texas has more than quadrupled its installed wind capacity over the period from 2005–2009 wit...
Conference Paper
Wind and solar technologies have experienced rapid market growth recently as a result of the growing interest for implementation of renewable energy. However, the intermittency of wind and solar power is a major obstacle to their broader use. The additional risks of unexpected interruptions and mismatch with demand have hindered the expansion of th...

Project
This research project is part of an initiative of the Energy Science Center to develop an integrated modelling platform for assessing energy systems that cuts across the boundaries of established fields of knowledge by combining existing and new tools from different disciplines. The objective of this project is to develop a platform which enables the study of complex and interdisciplinary questions about the impact of technical, socio-economic and political decisions on the performance of the future energy system.
Project
SCCER-FURIES is the Swiss national competence center mandated to develop, promote and deploy power grid-related innovative solutions toward the implementation of the Swiss Energy Strategy 2050. The SCCER-FURIES envisions the enabling of seamless and sustainable powering of Swiss citizens’ houses, businesses and communities, by developing and demonstrating with the Distribution and Transmission network operators the essential knowledge and technologies for a sustainable and stable electrical infrastructure of the future which integrates cleaner and reliable power supplies and storage facilities.
