Provide solutions for real world energy integration problems through multi-disciplinary power electronics research
The Electric Energy Systems Integration (EESI) Group provides science and technology solutions for the integration of devices and systems into electrical energy infrastructure ecosystems, with a focus on advanced, multi-disciplinary power electronics research. The EESI Group’s work spans applications in several areas, including:
Novel inverters for energy control systems to harness the load balancing potential of smart appliances within homes and commercial buildings; electronics to safely integrate microgrids and associated energy storage into the larger grid network.
Modeling and development of medium- and high-voltage converters for reliable, long-distance transmission of electricity; development of compact, low-cost inverters for efficient integration of renewable power sources into the grid network; and power electronics to support dynamically networked microgrids.
