Dr. Khodaei’s lab (called KLab) focuses on the design, planning, and operation of the electric grid of the future. The growing penetration of distributed energy resources, urgent need to shift towards more renewable and sustainable generation, and the ever-increasing consumers’ expectations in receiving premium power, have motivated global efforts in converting legacy electric grids into more reliable, resilient, cost-effective, and green grids of the future. We study, conduct research, and architect novel models on how emerging technologies can be leveraged to achieve this goal.
