seeks 1-2 quantitatively-minded Dartmouth undergrads for participation in a smart grid research competition. This work is a direct extension of our prior work in the smart power grid research theme
. The competition involves multi-agent system negotiation techniques as applied to power system operations and management. The work can serve as part of a senior thesis or an undergraduate research opportunity.
The successful student(s) will be driven by a sincere interest in the smart grid field and have an affinity to object-oriented programming. Engineering science or computing science majors are preferred although preparations in heavily computational disciplines such as physics, applied mathematics, and economics are welcome. A prior portfolio in an object-oriented programming language is required. C++ is specifically preferred. More senior undergraduate students are preferred although initiative, interest, and programming fluency will be the determining criteria.
