PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The main objective of this project is to develop a commercial prototype and to investigate the technical and commercial merits of the HybMic converter.  Wide-bandgap (WBG) semiconductor devices will be used in this effort.  This work aims to demonstrate the benefits of WBG semiconductors both at the component and system levels.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
To reduce the vulnerability of the grid to high penetration levels of renewable resources, this project will study the effects of renewable-resource stochasticity on the load flow within a grid and will perform a cost-benefit analysis of integrating battery storage systems to cope with production intermittencies. To this end, an optimization platform will be developed to select the technology, capacity, location, and optimal dispatch of an energy storage system to regulate the production of a renewable energy resource.
