Power and Energy
New opportunities in electrical energy and power systems are arising with advances in materials, communications, computation, and control. Students and faculty are investigating energy conversion systems where enhanced performance of electrical machines and power electronics is being exploited to develop a variety of novel applications, from automotive propulsion systems to wind generators. Power systems research is seeking new tools and techniques for improving grid efficiency and robustness. An important aspect of this work is the development of network control strategies for enhancing grid responsiveness, and enabling greater levels of renewable generation.|
