Research Description

__Distributed Control and Optimization in Smart Grids
__The ever-growing demand, rising penetration level of renewable generation, and increasing complexity of electric power systems, pose new challenges to control, operation, management and optimization of power grids. Conventional centralized control structure requires a complex communication network with two-way communication links and a powerful central controller to process large amount of data, which reduces overall system reliability and increases its sensitivity to failures, thus it may not be able to operate under the increased number of distributed renewable generation units. Prof. Xu’s group exploresdistributed control strategy that enables easier scalability, simpler communication network, faster distributed data processing, and can facilitate highly efficient information sharing and decision making. Distributed approach is a promising candidate to address the features of modern power grids by providing fast, flexible, reliable and cost-effective solutions.
