What We Do
We tackle fundamental modeling, control and estimation questions to both improve efficiency and longevity of existing energy systems and at the same time optimize the development of the new generation energy systems with the ultimate goal to accelerate the transition to clean energy grid and transportation. We work closely with major industry players, academicians from domestic and international universities and practitioners in the field of transportation and utility grid.
Currently, our group is focusing on:
- Understanding the physical phenomenal governing the operation and evolution of electrochemical energy storage systems – lithium ion batteries - and new generation emission control devices - catalytic converter and particulate filters
- Translating such an understanding into physics-based models for design optimization and real-time estimation and control
- Investigating the interplay between physics-based parameters and system level performance
- Optimizing energy storage technologies for electrified vehicles
