Smart Grid and Energy Systems Laboratory

surface-1.jpgSmart Grid and Energy Systems Lab at Energy Management Department supports a wide range of research activities related to smart grid and the integration of renewable energy resources. It includes a microgrid consisting of multiple distributed generation sources, demand and storage devices integrating AC and DC distribution systems. Distributed generation and storage systems can be managed in various modes assisted by detailed monitoring of power flows obtained from phasor measurement units and revenue grade meters. Device-level data and inverter data is also collected and analyzed in real-time. In the near future, real time active and reactive power management systems will support various experiments on the network. The energy lab also hosts smart grid compatible communication fabric integrable with IEC 61850.
