Information and Computing
The lab is used for research into high-performance and reconfigurable computing systems with a special focus on using Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) to enhance the performance and energy efficiency of data analytics, computational science, and embedded applications.
Renewable Energy and Advanced Power Electronics
The Renewable Energy and Advanced Power Electronics Research Laboratory investigates the fundamental engineering and scientific basis of electrical energy conversion, and the current concentration is photovoltaic systems. Our goal is to move photovoltaic energy (aka solar energy) out of the alternative energy category and into the mainstream portfolio of energy resources in a technologically and economically sustainable way.
Smart Grid Center
Electric energy is a key to every economy and for societal prosperity across the globe. The smart grid effort aims to transform this critical infrastructure into the 21st century using computer-based remote control and automation. The smart grid has been called “electricity with a brain,” the “energy Internet,” and the “Electronet.” Basically, it integrates electricity and information and communication infrastructures to produce electricity more efficiently and reliably, as well as cleanly and safely for the environment.
