ELITE Grid Lab Research

Power electronic technology plays a vital role in today’s energy systems in terms of its applications in efficient energy conversion, integration of dispersed energy resources, electric vehicles, etc. The ELITE Grid Research Lab aims at developing key technologies for Canada’s next-generation electric grids. The goal is to develop 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. More information on our research outcomes can be found in our publications.

The following is the list of our current research topics:

1. Grid Integration of Renewable Energy Systems and Energy Storage Systems.

2. Modeling, Control, and Energy Management of Microgrid and Smart Distribution Systems.

3. Smart Grid-Interfacing Power Converters.

4. High-Power Converters and Industrial Drives.
