Mohsenian-Rad Receives $400,000 Grant

Hamed Mohsenian-Rad, UCR’s new assistant professor of electrical engineering, has received a five-year, $400,000 grant from the National Science Foundation. He plans to design an energy management system through a plug-and-play energy consumption scheduling device that can control the amount of energy used by consumers. This system can adapt to changing electricity prices, renewable energy availability, and risks to electric system reliability — all with minimal cost to utility companies. Mathematical tools will also be built to investigate and shape the device’s operation to encourage consumer cooperation, support renewable energy integration, minimize generation cost and to maintain electrical power quality.
