Dr Jethro Browell

Research Fellow

Electronic and Electrical Engineering


Has expertise in:

    I have broad expertise in energy forecating methodology, GB electricity market arrangments, and the use of probabilistic information in decision-making. I have particular expertise in time-series modelling for very-short-term energy forecasting, and short-term forecasting based on numerical weather prediction.

Research interests

I am interested in statistical uncertainty and the role it plays in decision making, particularly in the energy sector. Many real world processes are stochastic in nature and in order to make optimal decisions one must approach the problem from a probabilistic perspective. My research to date has focused on energy forecasting, including wind, solar, demand and price, and the role that forecasts play in electricity market participation and power system operation. I have worked extensively on spatio-temporal aspects of renewable energy forecasting, and in addition I have worked on wind and wave forecasting for offshore maintenance/installation.

Historically, DNOs have operated with extremely limited visibility of flows on LV networks without issue as electricity consumption was predictable and smooth. Now, with the advent of domestic solar PV, distributed wind generation and the gradual electrification of heat and transport, there is a great need to increase visibility of LV networks, and this is being achieved through increased sensing of LV networks. To support the operation of these networks, it is desirable to forecast their utilisation in the short-term, from hours to days ahead, but to date, due to the previous unavailability of data and lack of need, little research has been undertaken. This project will address this emerging need with an innovative combination of network and weather data, advanced forecasting methodology and visualisation. Understanding the needs of the key stakeholders, existing data flows are required prior to suggesting and developing any models. We will apply novel analytical and statistical modelling techniques on our analytical platform to tackle this challenge.
