UCR Awarded $2.1 Million to Enhance Solar Power Integration

June 1, 2017

Dr. Alfredo Martinez-Morales (PI), Associate Professor Hamed Mohsenian-Rad, Dr. Sadrul Ula, and Professor Matthew Barth are awarded a $2.1 Million grant from the California Energy Commission to fund research on enhancing integration of solar generation units at high penetration rates at electric power distribution feeders. The project will develop advanced control algorithms for solar panel inverters to provide distribution level services, such as volt-VAR support and volt-Watt support. The project brings together multiple research centers and departments on campus, including the Winston Chung Global Energy Center (WCGEC), the Southern California Research Initiative for Solar Energy (SC-RISE), the Center for Environmental Research and Technology (CE-CERT), and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE).
