Storm Outage Prediction| Short Read

Title: Storm Outage Prediction

Funding: American Electric Power Service

Description: This project will develop models for predicting the impact of storms for AEP, a major utility whose service area spans from Texas to the Atlantic Ocean. The models developed will include novel methods for dealing with strongly zero-inflated data as well as improved approaches for feature selection with these data sets. This is a collaborative project with Ohio State University.
