The UT Microgrid Team is a group of researchers from across the university whose work focuses on microgrids or distributed generation, a key requirement for a microgrid.  The purpose of the team is to share information so that, together, we can advance the field more effectively than we could individually.  In addition, collaboration permits greater impact as the important aspects of the opportunity can be addressed collaboratively.

An important experimental tool at UT is our 1 MW experimental microgrid that can be operated either ac or dc and can be connected to or disconnected from the grid.  Much of the research at the University rests on modeling and simulation and that work can be validated by selected experiments using the capabilities of the research microgrid. This facility permits us to explore conditions such as faults and instabilities that would never be intentionally imposed on an operational microgrid.
