Georgia is currently working on “RailPower: Power and Energy for the future railways”, a project supported by the ETH Mobility Initiative together with the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) and the Institute for Transport Planning and Systems (IVT). Her research investigates the optimal operation of the future electric railways incorporating electric vehicle charging stations and renewable energy. It is anticipated that the proposed algorithms may enable the vision of train stations becoming future energy hubs and provide significant insights regarding their impacts onto the power system flows.
