Presenter: Andrew (Lu) Liu, Ph.D., associate professor, Purdue University

There has been a rapid growth of distributed energy resources (DERs) at the distribution level of power systems, which, if managed properly, can help improve the entire power grid’s efficiency and reliability, offset electricity price volatility, and promote renewable energy. However, due to the large number of DERs and the fact that they are owned by autonomous consumers, direct control by centralized authorities, such as system operators (e.g. ISOs) or utilities, is impossible.
