Flexible DC-Energy Router based on Energy Storage Integrated Circuit Breaker

 

 

 

 

NASA is looking to U.S. universities for lunar-focused research to bring about advancements in sustainable power solutions and available resource utilization.

Goal: Create and demonstrate a modular DC-energy router that can function as a power flow controller and an intelligent circuit breaker  for the lunar microgrid

CAR Role: Define and implement diagnostic algorithms capable of diagnose and isolate the many faults that can happen in a complex grid architecture to support the DC-energy router functions.

NASA, $1.6M        Lead: OSU CHPPE        Dates: 2021-2023
