Grid & Power Systems
New power system concepts are necessary to meet rising energy demand and evolving energy supply. "Smart grids" and "micro-grids" are part of this more comprehensive "smart energy" system. Including information-rich architectures, dynamic user clusters, and independent power producers, this new layered configuration requires multiple innovations:
CWRU’s grid research builds on strengths in controls and sensors, providing a foundation for smart grid connectivity of renewables and storage, as well as micro-grid development.
