Ramteen Sioshansi

Ramteen is a professor in Department of Integrated Systems Engineering and Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and an associate fellow in Center for Automotive Research at The Ohio State University. His research focuses on the integration of advanced energy technologies, including renewables, energy storage, and electric transportation, into energy systems. He works also in energy policy and electricity-market design, especially as they pertain to advanced energy technologies.

He is an IEEE Fellow and served three two-year terms on Electricity Advisory Committee, a federal advisory committee to U.S. Secretary of Energy, and chaired its Energy Storage (Technologies) Subcommittee.

Lecture: Resource-adequacy assessment of energy storage

Energy storage is being viewed increasingly as a resource that can contribute to power-system reliability and resource adequacy. However, most markets and system planners employ ad hoc approaches to ascribing capacity value to energy storage. This lecture will introduce the basic concepts of reliability modeling of power systems and a methodology to conduct these assessments for energy storage. Illustrative case studies show how market-design choice impact the use and operation of energy storage and its reliability contribution.

Lecture: Using concentrating solar power/solar thermal plants as capacity resources

Power systems are contending with finding economic carbon-free to low-carbon sources of reliable capacity. This lecture will discuss approaches to assessing the capacity contributions of renewable resources, limitations of the extant literature vis-à-vis conducting such assessments, and some illustrative findings of using hybrid renewable and storage plants as capacity resources.
