Energy Systems Technical Committee

Purpose of the Energy Systems Technical Committee

The purpose of the committee is to provide a coherent forum for engineers and scientists working on systems for generation, storage, conversion, and utilization of energy. It intends to promote research and education in the broader areas of modeling, dynamics, control, and experimentation of energy systems. It brings together experts from the active energy systems application areas of the DSCD to share ideas and expertise and therefore accelerate and recognize innovative research or energy solutions.

Meeting minutes are available here.

Committee Operating Guide is available here.

Topics of interest include

  • Renewable energy (Wind, Solar, Thermo, Ocean, etc)
  • Electrochemical Energy (Batteries, Ultracap, Fuel Cells, Fuel Processing, etc)
  • Electromechanical Energy (Flywheels, Piezos, etc)
  • Combustion Energy (diesel, otto, free piston, sterling, turbines, etc)
  • Hybrid Energy Systems
  • Grids, hubs and distributed power
  • Building efficiency
  • Converters, Electric Machines and Power Electronics
  • Micro-power
