The Santa Fe Institute presents the seminar, Large-Scale Power Restoration, by Pascal Van Hentenryck.

The seminar is 12:15 p.m., Friday, March 22 in the Collins Conference Room at 1399 Hyde Park Road in Santa Fe.

Abstract: This talk considers how to restore a transmission system after significant disruptions.

It presents hybrid optimization models, combining mathematical programming, constraint programming, and local search, that scale to large transmission systems and reviews the underlying technology to achieve these results.

Experimental results on the US infrastructure also are presented.
