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.

Researchers
The electrons absorb laser light and set up “momentum combs” (the hills) spanning the energy valleys within the material (the red line). When the electrons have an energy allowed by the quantum mechanical structure of the material—and also touch the edge of the valley—they emit light. This is why some teeth of the combs are bright and some are dark. By measuring the emitted light and precisely locating its source, the research mapped out the energy valleys in a 2D crystal of tungsten diselenide.

Mapping quantum structures with light to unlock their capabilities

Rather than installing new “2D” semiconductors in devices to see what they can do, this new method puts them through their paces with lasers and light detectors. | Medium Read
