IAP 2010 Activity

Assessing Alternative Energy Designs with Simulink
Terry Denery The MathWorks, James Cain OEIT
Tue Jan 12, 10am-12:00pm, 4-231

No enrollment limit, no advance sign up
Limited to 60 participants.
Single session event

In this session, we will demonstrate the use of MATLAB and Simulink in assessing the designs of new technologies for generating electricity using examples that include solar and wind power generation. We will show how MATLAB and Simulink can be used develop controls that maximize power generation and transmission and ensure that the generated AC power is synchronized in frequency and phase with the national electric grid. We will feature the use of SimPowerSystems, SimElectronics, and SimMechanics for modeling the electrical and mechanical components that make up these systems.
