It is a revolutionary platform that is hoped to facilitate larger amounts of renewable integration into the grid and provides a secure environment for larger adoption of electric vehicles.
Three major research problems are identified in collaboration with SEAS-NVE to develop the first version of Flexibility Aggregator Simulation Platform (FRESNO).
The three projects will be conducted simultaneously and in close collaboration with each other.
