Dr. Nan Yang

Dr. Nan Yang, professor and doctoral supervisor of the School of Electrical and New Energy, Three Gorges University, Three Gorges scholar, leader of the research team of smart energy equipment and operation planning technology, deputy director of Hubei Engineering Technology Center of New Energy Microgrid, IEEE senior member, China Electrotechnical Technology Co., Ltd. Member of the Electric Vehicle Charging and Swapping System and Test Special Committee of the Society, young editorial board member of domestic academic journals “Power System Protection and Control”, “High Voltage Electrical Appliances” and “Smart Electricity”, and SCI journals “Sustainability” and “Frontiers in energy research” “ guest editor. Visiting Scholar at Stevens Institute of Technology, USA. The main research direction is the optimal operation of power system, including the research on the decision-making method of unit combination based on physical model and data-driven, etc. The related work is published in IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics, Journal of Modern Power Systems and Clean Energy, Proceedings of the CSEE, Electric Power Systems Research, IET Generation, Transmission & Distribution and other journals.


In our study, we have demonstrated a series of data-driven unit commitment decision methods that open up new possibilities for decision optimization in the field of unit commitment. Notably, we have made a groundbreaking application of deep learning technology to the unit commitment decision-making task, enabling online decision-making for input load by training the model with highly similar historical schemes. Furthermore, we introduce the E-Seq2Seq techniques to effectively address the challenges of sample clustering and adaptability to elastic multiple-sequence samples. The research shows that the proposed data-driven decision-making method can greatly simplify the process and complexity of modeling and solving, and fully take into account the input variables that cannot be modeled in traditional methods. On the other hand, thanks to the generalization ability of the model, the same neural network can automatically switch between different data samples and different decision objectives, which has an ability similar to “immune memory” to deal with emerging theoretical problems and challenges.
