Northeastern University Facilities
The Electric Power and Energy Systems group maintains three laboratories: the Power Systems Lab, the Power Electronics and Motion Control Lab, and the Energy Processing Lab. The laboratories include specialized equipment for measurement and control development for energy processing systems including LED-based lighting, solar cells, and electromechanical systems. Analytical software available in these labs consists of industry-grade simulation applications including the EPRI power system analysis programs (IPFLOW, ETMSP, and DYNRED), PSCAD for simulations of high-power electronics, and Saber for power electronic systems. The main areas of research include power system dynamics and control, state estimation, design and control of power electronic converters, power quality, and web-based instructional development.
