CAPS Strategic Faculty Search
The Center for Advanced Power Systems (CAPS)
is a multidisciplinary research center organized to perform basic and
applied research to advance the field of power systems technology. CAPS
emphasis is on application to electric utility, defense, and transportation, as
well as, developing an education program to train the next generation of power
systems engineers. The research focuses on electric power systems modeling and
simulation, power electronics and machines, control systems, thermal
management, cyber-security for power systems, high temperature superconductor
characterization and electrical insulation research.
With support from the U.S. Navy, Office of Naval Research (ONR) and the U.S.
Department of Energy, CAPS has established a unique test and demonstration
facility with one of the largest real-time digital power systems simulators
along with 5 MW AC and DC test beds for hardware in the loop simulation. The
center is supported by a research team comprised of dedicated and highly
skilled researchers, scientists, faculty, engineers, and students, recruited
from across the globe, with strong representation from both the
academic/research community and industry.
