The Energy and Climate Policy Research Seminar Series presentsInterconnected Energy Grids – A Future for Electric Energy” with Professor Aleksandar Stanković, Alvin H. Howell Professor in Electrical Engineering.

The area of energy processing, which includes power electronics, electric drives and power systems, is at a crossroads. Its challenges are both external (contribution to climate change, nonfunctional markets) and internal (inability to integrate renewable sources and efficient loads). The promise of energy processing comes from a growing array of potentially transformative technologies that currently exist in energy components, power electronics, distributed sensing, and networked control. The first part of this talk will review available energy technologies, and outline salient features of the existing energy systems. The second part will outline desirable future developments in electric energy systems with an emphasis on interconnection of networks with different energy carriers.
