Ana Dyreson (ME-EM) attended the Power Systems Engineering Consortium (PSERC) Industry Advisory Board meeting at Cornell University, held May 29–30.

Dyreson presented on the PSERC project “Incorporating climate impacts into electricity system planning models: review and case study.”

She also attended and presented at the Photovoltaic Performance Modeling Consortium (PVPMC) Workshop in Salt Lake City, Utah, held May 7–9.

Dyreson presented on the panel “Modeling Snow Effects on PV Systems.” The presentation topic was “Snow shedding from single-axis tracking PV systems: observations from the Michigan Regional Test Center and implications for modeling widespread snow events.” The presentation was co-authored by Ph.D. students Shelbie Wickett and Ayush Chutani (both mechanical engineering-engineering mechanics).

Ana Dyreson is an assistant professor in ME-EM. She leads the Great Lakes Energy Group, where she uses energy analysis and grid-scale modeling to study the performance of renewable technologies and the operation of future electric power systems, with a focus on the impacts of climate change on those systems in the U.S. Great Lakes region.
