FREEDM Research Team Receives Funding to Develop Tools for Grid Resilience
Researchers in the FREEDM Systems Center led by NC State have received a $3.1 million research award from the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) to advance solar energy’s role in strengthening the resilience of the U.S. electricity grid. The project will develop a Photovoltaic (PV) Analysis and Response Support (PARS) platform to provide real-time situational awareness and optimal response plan selection for electric utilities.
New Electric Car Charger is More Efficient, 10 Times Smaller Than Current Tech
Researchers at North Carolina State University have built an electric vehicle fast charger that is at least 10 times smaller than existing systems and wastes 60 percent less power during the charging process, without sacrificing the charging time.
Register for the January 2020 FREEDM Tech Webinar
Presented is an introduction to ParaPower, a new open-source FDA simulator from the Army Research Lab. The tool is demonstrated on a solid-state circuit breaker under transient fault conditions and compared to COMSOL. A quick temperature and stress analysis for different environmental conditions (heat coefficient and ambient temperature) and materials suitability will be carried out to refine the design.
