Research - Energy Center - Purdue University


As part of the Crossroads Smart Grid Training Grant, Purdue has developed the Integrated Smart Energy Technology (INSET) Lab in the College of Technology, that focuses on:

  • Batteries
  • Electric Vehicles
  • Electric Vehicle Charging Station Technologies
  • Vehicle-2- Grid Technology
  • Distributed Automation Technology

The lab also focuses on modeling on traffic and power demands to improve our understanding of electric vehicle charging, power demand forecasting and economics of deferring power grid investments.

In addition to Purdue’s INSET Lab, Purdue’s Smart Grid research touches a wide variety of specialized areas, such as energy storage, electric vehicles, cyber security, integration of renewable energy, agent based modeling, consumer behavior, power and energy devices and systems, robotics and much more. Below are Purdue’s key research faculty in Smart Grid technologies. For more information on their individual research, click on their pictures.
