Power Grid Research, Engineering Futures, & Academic All-American

In a recent article from EnergyWire, highlights from a recent power industry conference at the University of Pittsburgh’s Swanson School of Engineering are profiled. The conference gave students a chance to describe their research projects on renewable power generation, semiconductor electronics, direct-current power lines, battery storage and electric vehicle charging. Stephanie P. Cortes, PA L 2017, shared information on her work regarding “bidirectional power control systems to automate when electric vehicle owners recharge their cars, and when they return excess power to the grid.”
