Musilek, Petr


Dr. Musilek energy-related research focuses on the use of data anlytics to support design and operation of future electric power grids. He studies the integration of renewables and distributed energy resources (DER) in the electric power grids, concentrating on energy management of grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) systems combined with battery energy storage systems (BESS). He also examines how meteorological conditions impact the energy production and consumption patterns, and the characteristics and integrity of the power delivery infrastructure (dynamic thermal rating, ice accretion). To deal with the complexity and uncertainty of modern distributed energy systems, he often employs high-performance computing and soft computing methods including neural networks, fuzzy systems, evolutionary computing and swarm intelligence.
