In the Green Solar Solutions

Team: Omana, Santacroce, Boswell, Nguyen, Tinges

Class: 192A

This project utilizes the natural humidity of a greenhouse to supplement the efficiency of the existing home AC. Additionally, the entire system is powered via solar energy to keep the system net-zero.

Coordinated Charging Methods for Electric Vehicles

Group 3: Cortez, Ho, John Gidcumb, Le, Hernandez

Class: 192B

Electrical Vehicle (EV) has a benefit of energy saving, environment, protection, and less reliance on petroleum. However, in this transition it is crucial to understand the charging behavior of electric vehicles (EVs). Smart charging/discharging strategies of EVs can decrease daily cost of EV owner assist in peak load saving in power grid, and improve reliability of power system.

Power Line Fault Prevention and Detection

Group 4: Baul, Castro, Green, Jacquez, Mora-Soto

Class: 192B

We need a solution that can prevent a high impedance fault from occurring, as well as a reliable detection method if a HIF occurs.

Instability Caused by Inverters Connected to the Power Grid: The Simulation and Observations

Group 5: Almond, DeBortoli, Koshavenko, Arcinas

Class: 192B

Weak grids are types of grids that are weak in strength, or their efficiency to maintain a constant voltage regardless of the load. With Weak grids, they are extremely sensitive to distorted voltages and frequencies.

Pumped Storage Hydropower Simulation

Group 6: Tinker, Quezada, Kaiser, Silvia

Class: 192B

With increasing pressure from consumers and government, the effects of global warming, and depletion of our natural resources we must look into renewable and green technologies for power production. That's why our team chose to explore the topic of PSH (pumped storage hydropower) as a way to implement unstable renewable energy systems (RES) onto the grid.
