Power System Protection and Automation Laboratory (PSPAL)

A power grid is a network of electrical components to generate, transmit and distribute electric energy to customers. With ever larger demand for electric power, power systems are evolving with more complexity. Further, compared to today’s grid, future power grid will integrate more intermittent renewable generations such as Photovoltaic (PV) and Wind Turbines (WTs), which are typically interfaced with power electronics devices. These facts bring additional challenges to the controls and operations of the power grid.

The Power System Protection and Automation Laboratory (PSPAL) at ShanghaiTech University focuses on (1) dealing with faults and (2) tracking states/dynamics in power systems and microgrids. Specifically, the ongoing research topics in the PSPAL include power system and microgrid protection, fault locating, dynamic/static state estimation, parameter identification, HVDC transmission systems, microgrid control and power system cyber security.
