Electricity Systems

The DOE is considering formulation of an ‘Electricity Systems Hub’ as part of efforts to transform energy systems through modernizing the Electric Grid. The Electric Systems Hub will address the basic science, technology, economic, and policy issues that affect our ability to achieve a seamless and modernized grid. The Energy Center is facilitating a campus wide research community to position Purdue to this national need. Purdue’s capabilities include: (1) cyber infrastructure/security, (2) modeling and simulation, (3) power electronics/control design and materials, (4) policy and governance, and (5) consumer engagement.
