ENERGISE grant award from DoE!

We just received an ENERGISE (Enabling Extreme Real-time Grid Integration of Solar Energy) award from the Department of Energy (DoE).

Project Description: The project seeks to overcome the challenges of managing an increasingly variable and uncontrollable power supply due to roof-top solar by adapting advanced real-time control and optimization concepts from high-voltage power systems to low-voltage three-phase distribution grid operations. This will allow us to develop state-of-the-science analytical and software tools necessary to ensure reliable and resilient distribution system operations under extreme penetration of solar PV generation. The team will also study the role and capability of novel energy market formulations and validate the resulting technology in multiple phases with industry partners.
