Energy Systems,

Analytics & Control

The Smart Grid, which differs from the power grids we know today in that it incorporates computing technology into every aspect of electric power generation, delivery and consumption, will permit the seamless integration of conventional and renewable energy sources while at the same time reducing the environmental impact of energy distribution and consumption, and improving the quality of service provided to all consumers. 

The discovery and innovation backbone of the IExE Energy Systems Analytics & Control cluster is a real-life energy system network and corresponding Energy Management System that allows IExE teams to: examine interactions of multiple energy networks and network components in a real-life energy system operating environment; experience and visualize energy system phenomena in a scaled down EMS; experimentally validate computer and control models; examine the role/effect of novel building sensor and actuation systems on local as well as network-wide control systems; and study the respective roles of traditional and emerging energy storage technologies on Smart Grid energy systems and in optimizing energy management.
