A. The investigation regarding distribution energy resource on smart grid is compatible with requirements of electric system grid operators and electric utility corporations whereas helping the loads and needs of electricity customers. The research is organized as shown below:
1. Advanced Sensing Modelling and Short Term Control in the Distribution Grid
• Multi objective smart inverter control with micro-sychrophasor data
• FEXLAB Pilot test facility
• VirGIL (Virtual Grid Integration Lab)
• Contact: Emma Stewart, [email protected]
2. Microgrid Supervisory Control and Resource Coordination
• DER-CAM (Distributed Energy Resources Customer Adoption Model)
• Microgrid Design Tools
• Microgrid controller depliyment
• Contact: Michael Stadler, [email protected]

3. Vehicle-to-Grid Integration and Demand Response
• EV as storage and vehicle to grid integration
• EV smart charging and DR
