Intelligent Power Routers for Distributed Coordination in Electric Energy Processing Networks Grant uri icon


  • A $499,849 project sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Office for Naval Research (ONR) to develop a model for the next generation power network using a distributed concept based on scalable coordination by an Intelligent Power Router (IPR). Our goal was to show that by distributing network intelligence and control functions using the IPR, we will be capable of achieving improved survivability, security, reliability, and re-configurability. Our approach builds on our knowledge from power engineering, systems, control, distributed computing, and computer networks.
