Eugene G. Preston's Resume (& clients)

Professional:
A Direct High Speed Calculation Procedure For Determining LOLE, LOLH, and EUE For Fossil, Wind, and Solar Generation With A Suggested Procedure For Also Including Transmission Constraints - WECC video 1 - file 1 and repeated to the IEEE video 2 - file 2 which also has study results.
Here is why it's so important to keep the grid reliable, i.e. maintaining an LOLE<=0.1 days per year.
Where are we headed here in Texas with our long range resource planning efforts?
Dissertation on composite generation/transmission reliability (1.3 Mb) Appendices A B C D and Bibliography and Defense
IEEE paper on generation reliability modeling with transmission constraints
IEEE paper on transmission reliability modeling for multiple line outages (zipflow)
My lecture to Dr Mack Grady's class on how I perform ATC studies.
My dissertation also revealed a way to perform Piecewise Quadratic time domain analysis.
The Integral Fast Reactor, an ultimate energy source, seems to be one of the US government's best kept secrets. (ppt)
Persons who are truly green believe we must develop safe and environmentally friendly nuclear power.
Those wanting to eliminate peaceful nuclear power are simply delaying the transition off fossil fuels.
