Project Overview:

The Intelligent Grid Controller team has built an interactive model that represents the power system of the future. The purpose of this model is to showcase how this future grid will function. The model will be self-healing, able to react to faults and re-route power. It will also take advantage of green energy supplies when they are available, and demonstrate how new advanced energy storage technologies will be used to ease peak loads and provide additional power during faults. The software and hardware components will be integrated in a realistic and scalable network that will demonstrate how the future grid communicates in order to provide cleaner, cheaper, and more reliable power.
