Who we are
Assembled to investigate how a new technology, micro-synchrophasors (µPMUs), can be used to understand electric power distribution grid stability, our research team includes: California Institute for Energy and Environment (CIEE); Power Standards Lab; University of California, Berkeley (UCB); Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL); and, individual consultants.
Researchers & roles
CIEE - Prime contractor, involved in all parts of the project
UCB, EECS Department - developing wireless network, installing prototype µPMU PQubes
LBNL - modeling of distribution systems, development of algorithms
W. Mack Grady and Ron Hofmann - consultants to the project
Our three-year project is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy's ARPA-E (Advanced Research Projects Agency - Energy) program, under the supervision of ARPA-E’s Tim Heidel. View our team photo on the project kickoff page.
