PEIK Presents Federal and Utility Sponsored Research

May 17, 2022

Power and Energy Institute of Kentucky (PEIK) graduate students from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering participated in-person at this year’s IEEE Power and Energy Society (PES) Transmission and Distribution Conference and Exposition (T&D) in New Orleans.

The biennial IEEE PES T&D Conference and Exposition is one of the largest technical events organized by the IEEE Power and Energy Society. This year’s edition, which resumed the long tradition of in-person meetings, had over 10,000 attendees and hosted more than 600 exhibitors.

Students, who had of yet to attend in person a large IEEE conference, were able to connect with industry professionals and academic experts and present their research within the following posters:

  • Alden, R. E., and Ionel, D. M., “Simulation of Smart Home Loads for Large Scale DR and VPP Studies using Synthetic Data from Hybrid ML Black Box Models”
  • Gong, H., and Ionel, D. M., “Distribution Power System Level DR and Detailed Modeling for Electric Water Heaters with CTA-2045 Controls”
  • Jones, E. S., Hadi, A., and Ionel, D. M., “Co-simulation Framework for Smart Homes and Grids employing an Ultra-fast HVAC and Building Model for VPP Control”
  • Lewis, D. D., and Ionel, D. M., “Grid Impact Studies for Dynamic Wireless Charging of Moving Electric Vehicles”

These presentations reported on technical findings and ongoing collaboration with projects supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), Department of Energy (DOE), Department of Education (DoEd), the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), and Louisville Gas and Electric and Kentucky Utilities (LG&E & KU). Author’s versions of the manuscripts are available online from the SPARK Lab publications web page.
