Luiz Carlos da Costa Jr

Has a BSc in Power Systems Engineering from UFRJ, MSc and DCs degrees in Operations Research (Optimization) from COPPE/UFRJ. He joined PSR in 2002 where he has been involved on the development of computational models applied to the energy sector such as: optimization of hydrothermal dispatch under uncertainty with network constraints (SDDP model), generation-transmission composite reliability evaluation (CORAL model), electric systems expansion planning (OPTGEN model) and transmission cost allocation (TGrid model). Moreover, he participated on the development of models for generation-demand balancing markets (Balance model) and energy price evaluation (Anaspr model).
