Title: Multi-timescale and control-perceptive scheduling of power plant-carbon capture system

 A carbon-capture system is required for coal-fired power plants to meet environmental regulation and provide support for grid penetration of renewable energy sources, when the integrated power plant-carbon capture system must operate in a highly flexible manner to accommodate the need for intermittent renewable power. To this end, this talk introduces the state-of-the-art studies of scheduling and control for the operation of integrated power plant-carbon capture system to fully exploit the decarbonization and flexibility of carbon capture technology in multiple timescales.

Prof. Wu received his B. S. degree and Ph. D. degree in Energy information and Automation in Southeast University, Nanjing, China, in 2008 and 2014.
