Georgia Institute of Technology -Dynamic Control of Grid Assets Using Direct Alternate Current Converter Cells
CX(s) Applied: B3.6, B5.1
Office(s): Advanced Research Projects Agency - Energy
Funding will support laboratory and bench scale research and development on a cost-effective and scalable technique for dynamic grid control through the variation of existing assets such as capacitors, reactors, and transformers. The proposed work is consistent with the goal of Building Energy Efficiency through Innovative Thermodevices (BEETIT): the development of energy efficient cooling technologies and air conditioners for buildings, to save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Proposed work consists entirely of research, development, and demonstration work to be completed in laboratories housed on the campus of Georgia Tech. Work performed is limited to in-lab design, analysis, and development.
