Power Systems Engineering Research Center (PSERC)- Phase 2

Project: Research project

Description

Background. The university collaborative entitled the Power Systems Engineering Research Center (PSERC) is a multi-university organization focused on electric energy systems. It is dedicated to addressing current and future reliability, efficiency and electric energy security challenges. It works on technological and market challenges in integrating enabling technologies that support public policies, such as those involving renewable technologies and climate change. It is developing applications, such as advanced grid analysis tools and grid control and protection schemes, that take full advantage of data from the time-synchronized measurement network that is emerging in North America. In general, its research areas include power systems, and transmission and distribution technologies, and power markets and policy. It is working toward an efficient, secure, resilient, adaptable, and economic electric power infrastructure serving society. As a university-based collaborative, its mission includes education of the next generation of power engineers. Consortium for Electric Reliability Technology Solutions (CERTS) was formed in 1999 to research, develop and commercialize new methods, tools and technologies to protect and enhance the reliability of the U.S. electric power system. CERTS is conducting research for the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability (OE). CERTS is a consortium involving universities, national labs, and industry.
