The Electric Energy Systems Group

The Electric Energy Systems Group (EESG) is a group of faculty, researchers and graduate students pursuing research programs, creation of curriculum and outreach for modern electric energy systems.

Research

The research programs uniquely build on the university’s strength in interdisciplinary research including work across the domains of electric power systems, signal processing, control theory, information technology, computer science, optimization and communication technology. Hence, we view the future electric energy systems as physical systems enabled by sensing, computing, communications and control technologies that shape their performance according to well understood and sustainable goals.

Education

We teach courses which reflect the above understanding of the future electric power system. The objective is to prepare engineers as the workforce needed to reliably operate the future electric power system with increased penetration of renewable generation.

Outreach

The annual electricity conference is a major component of our outreach activities. The conference is well attended by representatives from industry, academia and government.
