Grid Integration Resesarch Projects
QEERI focuses on the collection, generation and analysis of measurement data from remote sensors and experimental systems to support mission-critical challenges in energy and water security. Our projects focus on:
- Solar Mapping and Forecasting: We record, assess, and forecast solar irradiance as a resource for electricity generation in Qatar; and we are developing a solar atlas portal enabling access to solar maps and analytics.
- Management and Optimization of Operations in the Smart Grid: We are building smart inverters and controllers that ensure reliable power supply from renewable energy resources; creating smart micro-grid simulations and test-beds to test new technologies for integration of renewable energy resources in the national utility grid; designing a smart grid for Qatar Foundation-Education City; and using of Geographic Information System (GIS) technology to support groundwater flow and transport modeling.
