November 12, 2013

In the third part of the Electrical Energy Research and Commercialization symposium, the formal research agenda for the WAcees project is presented by the UW’s Daniel Kirschen and PNNL’s Carl Imhoff. The WAcees research focuses on the systems aspects of the smart grid, encompassing system-level architecture, planning, operation, protection and control, as well as computational issues. Specific research topics include flexibility, implementation of energy storage, demand-side participation, optimal investment in distribution networks, and cyber security.
