Estimating Device or System Probability of Failure

POF Darts is a new algorithm for the QMU problem of estimating device or system probability of failure (POF), e.g., of critical infrastructures in the face of a potentially disruptive event. POF Darts wraps around a computational simulation of a device, evaluating it at particular parameter values, such as uncertain environmental conditions and varying as-manufactured [...]

ECIS-Princeton Power Systems, Inc.: Demand Response Inverter

Solar energy is both predictable—the sun rises and sets everyday—and intermittent—a passing cloud can reduce a 1 MW photovoltaic (PV) array from 100% of its power generating capacity to 10% in a matter of seconds. This intermittency limits this renewable-energy (RE) source and how much of it is integrated into today’s electricity grid. A [...]
