FREEDM combines the research prowess of five universities: Arizona State, Florida A&M, Florida State, Missouri S&T, and NC State.
Members support our work and provide guidance through an Advisory Board. They also hire our graduates, partner on research proposals, and have early access to IP.
How we work together
IEEE partnered with FREEDM, ABB, and Duke Energy to verify new testing procedures for Standard 1547.
Schneider Electric needed a flexible testbed to evaluate a new product that would integrate distributed energy generation and storage into an existing building infrastructure. They chose the FREEDM Green Energy Hub.
New York Power Authority wants to know if they can improve the dynamic performance of their grid using wind farms and data from phasor measurement units to implement wide-area damping control. They took advantage of the Full Member Fellowship program and hired a graduate student to figure this out.
When semiconductor manufacturer, Microsemi, needed a partner to build a three-phase Vienna power factor correction topology reference design featuring its silicon carbide diodes and MOSFETs, they turned to researchers at FREEDM.
