About Me

Milan Vukasovic (born 1981 in Sarajevo, BiH) received his Dipl-Ing. and MSc. in Electrical Engineering, both from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering Podgorica, Montenegro. After gaining valuable experience in real-time transmission system operation in CGES (Cronogorski Elektroenergetski Sistem), he moves to Austria at the end of 2007 where he starts to work as the Project Manager in the Market Management Department of the Austrian Power Grid AG (APG). He currently leads a team of 10 employees in the System Operations Department, within the same company.

In the last ten years, Milan has been engaged in the implementation of the most important European energy market projects. His main interests are in the electricity markets, load-flow analysis and energy market simulation, congestion management, demand-side response, home automation and computer applications in the power systems. He is co-convener of the regional ENTSO-E market Task Force (TF) in South-East Europe as well as being the Chairman of the RD&CT Cost-Sharing PT within the Core CCR (Capacity Calculation Regions).

He published numerous scientific papers and articles in various international high-ranked journals and conference proceedings (see excerpt in the text below).

Hobbies: Web development & design, home automation (mainly with the raspberry pi), travelling and basketball. Interested in journalism (being the radio editor and host of the momentum radio show), DJ-ing and vinyl collection.

Skills

Experienced to work with the following software: PTI PSS/E - Power System Simulator for Engineering (load flow, static security), PSA (Power System Analyzer), Plexos simulation software and The General Algebraic Modeling System - GAMS.

Several years experience in the field of web-based programming and design: 15+ functional and attractive web-sites, including the official web-site of Guru’s Jazzmatazz project vol.3 and vol.4 (Virgin Records US 2003 / 7_Grand 2007).

Give Guru a credit for knowing how to surround himself with great talent. It's a fact that has guided his career from the early days of Gang Starr -- the group he formed with one of the greatest hip-hop producers of all time, DJ Premier -- to his solo Jazzmatazz albums, recorded with a host of jazz/soul legends including Roy Ayers, Donald Byrd, Freddie Hubbard, Branford Marsalis, Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Kelis, Herbie Hancock, Isaac Hayes, Bob James and many other...

Raspberry Pi

Home automation is the residential extension of building automation. It is automation of the home, housework or household activity. Home automation may include centralized control of lighting, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), appliances, security locks of gates and doors and other systems, to provide improved convenience, comfort, energy efficiency and security.

How to make energy storage projects bankable?

A battery storage system could be of interest for TSOs when it comes to provision of the specific services, such as enhanced frequency response and damping of low-frequency system oscillations.On the side of DSOs those valuable services would include voltage stability, but also demand shaving and congestion relief, deferring expensive investments. // Energy Storage Forum 02/2018

Development of the South-East European Electricity Market

One of the main problems in South-East Europe is the existence of many relatively small local segmented markets. In some of them, such as Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Serbia, a high-concentration of generation units still belonging to state-owned companies can be observed. // ENERGETIKA.NET Issue No.19
