This research focuses on the development of systems analysis, control, and monitoring technologies for the distribution segment of the electrical grid. This is one of the parts of the grid where there is substantial need and opportunity for technological enhancement. The primary purpose of this research is to address the impact on the system of future distributed renewable generation, storage, demand management, and electric vehicle charging systems. Our approach is based on computational analysis and simulation, making use of dynamical models, statistical inference, and optimization.
