ADVANCED POWER SYSTEM INITIATIVE AND LABORATORIES
Cal Poly Electrical Electrical Engineering has a long continuous history for education of students in the electric power systems area. Key current facilities include the Energy Conversion Laboratory 20-102, the Power Electronics Laboratory 20-104, the Renewable Energy Systems Lab 20-150, and the Power Systems Projects Laboratory 20-101. The EE department is in the process of augmenting these laboratory facilities for teaching and research purposes. Key initiatives include:
a. Easily Configurable Microgrid Energy System with generation, energy storage, and extensive metering as part of building 20.
b. Advanced Electric Machines Equipment.
c. Real Time Digital Simulator to complement our Electric Power Systems CAD tools.
d. Cyber Security Teaching and Research Network focusing on Smart Energy Systems.
e. Projects Laboratory focused on Sustainability, Energy Conservation, Electric Vehicles, and "Internet of Things"- enabled Efficient Homes.
Electrical Engineering needs your help in the build out these new initiatives and laboratories! Please contact Professor Taufik, Director or the Electric Power Institute, or Department Chair Dennis Derickson.
