In July our paper “System Dynamics models for improved power plant operation” was presented at ICOSC 2013 (The Fourth International Conference on Optimization, Simulation and Control) in Ulaanbaatar by our colleague and friend Bayasgalan Zagdkhorol of Mongolian University of Science & Technology (MUST).

The abstract, which shows some of our early results, can be found here. Thank you, Zagdaa, for representing us and our work!
