SE2020 students Jasper Chapman-Black, Céline O'Neil and Sean Purcell won first place in the Ontario Engineering Competition (OEC) Programming Competition. The team developed a system to control an hour-by-hour simulation of power generation in Ontario. “We combined a control system and a linear programming solver to pick the optimal combination of power sources to use, minimizing cost and CO2 emissions," says Purcell. They will move on to the Canadian Engineering Competition hosted by the University of Manitoba from March 6 to 9.
