SCHEDULE: NOV 16-22, 2013
When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your own schedule to guide you through the week.
Real-Time Stochastic Optimization of Complex Energy Systems on High Performance Computers
SESSION: Research Poster Reception
EVENT TYPE: Posters, Electronic Posters, and Education Posters

We present a scalable approach that computes in operationally-compatible time the energy dispatch under uncertainty for electrical power grid systems of realistic size with thousands of scenarios. We propose several algorithmic and implementation advances in our parallel solver PIPS-IPM for stochastic optimization problems. The new developments include a novel incomplete augmented multicore sparse factorization implemented within PARDISO linear solver and new multicore- and GPU-based dense matrix implementation. We also adapt and improve the interprocess communication strategy. PIPS-IPM is used to solve 24-hour horizon power grid problems with up to 1.95 billion decision variables and 1.94 billion constraints on "Titan" (Cray XK7) and "Piz Daint" (Cray XC30), where we observe very good parallel inefficiencies and solution times within a operationally defined time interval. To our knowledge, "real-time"-compatible performance on a broad range of architectures for this class of problems has not been possible prior to present work.
