Engineers at Texas A&M University have developed a one-of-a-kind diagnostic software called Distribution Fault Anticipation that can discover problems on utility lines before outages, before power failures spark deadly wildfires, or before fears of wildfires prompt massive, pre-emptive power outages.
To support the progression of solar power, a team led by Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station researchers received a $4.4 million Department of Energy grant to develop and demonstrate a cyber-resilient operation for power distribution systems with massively photovoltaic generation, such as rooftop solar panels.
Levi McClenny, a doctoral candidate who holds a Design of Energy Materials fellowship and was recently appointed student regent for the state of Texas, has utilized the program to gain insight as to what happens at the microstructure level in materials.
Some of the greatest minds in smart grid research came to Texas A&M University during the first ever Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) International Conference on Smart Grid Synchronized Measurements and Analytics. Leaders from academia, research organizations and industry from all over the world facilitated innovation, knowledge transfer and technical progress in addressing synchronized sampling and synchrophasors.
The Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES), a member of The Texas A&M University System, announced the creation of the new Hewlett Packard Enterprise Center for Computer Architecture Research, made possible with an $11 million donation from Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
Researchers at Texas A&M University are working on new Specially Adapted Housing Assistive Technology that could help veterans with severe spinal cord injuries and disorders achieve even more independence with a grant from the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Dr. Arum Han and a Texas A&M University-led research team received a grant from the DARPA program totaling more than $15 million to develop a way to quickly detect and determine which bacterial pathogens are present in a soil or water sample.
