The ELITE Grid Research Lab is led by Prof. Yunwei (Ryan) Li. The lab’s objectives are to develop key technologies and train highly qualified personnel (HQP) for Canada’s next-generation electric grids. We aim at developing grids with high percentages of renewable energy generation; highly efficient transmission and distribution structures; reliable and efficient power electronic interfaces to integrate renewable energy and high efficiency loads; and the highest cyber security and system reliability.
