Coordinated Operation of Electric And Natural Gas Supply Networks: Optimization Processes And Market Design:

This project has developed intra-day transient pipeline optimization technology, economic theory and algorithms for hourly pricing of natural gas deliveries over large pipeline networks, and design of market mechanisms for efficient coordination of natural gas and electric power systems. The team is led by Newton Energy Group, and is supported by Kinder Morgan corporation. The period of performance is April 2016 - April 2019. Software developed at Los Alamos National Laboratory for this project is available in the open source release GRAIL.
