The Center for intelligent Power and Energy Systems (CiPES) at ShanghaiTech aims to integrate the cutting-edge technologies including distributed microgrid, smart grid, plug-in electric vehicle, Internet of Things, big data, and artificial intelligence, to comprehensively optimize the whole process of power generation, energy storage, power distribution, and utilization. CiPES will serve as a pillar of ShanghaiTech’s path to a world-class research university by cultivating top talents and pioneering the research in the field of power and energy systems. We continuously devote ourselves to promote low-carbon, intelligent, and highly reliable power and energy systems in China and world wide.
CiPES' research on power electronics is revolved around modeling, simulating, prototyping, and validating power electronics systems in the applications of electrified transportation, renewable energies harvesting, smart home, power management of wearable devices and many more. We develop power management solutions that take advantage of advanced topologies, power devices, magnetic materials, and control strategies in those emerging fields.
Power system is a network of electrical components to generate, transmit and distribute electrical energy. Modern power system evolves with increasing complexity, encountering challenges brought by growing penetration of renewables and power electronic interfaced devices. CiPES focuses on developing advanced modeling, protection, and control methodologies to ensure reliability, resiliency, safty and efficiency of modern power systems.
We are actively developing the core technology and additional intellectual property that will take wireless power transfer and apply it to charge various devices, such as medical implants, IoT sensors, mobile phones, household appliances, automatic robots, and electrical vehicles.
We develop energy harvesting technology for the highly distributed electronic devices in the future "Internet of Everything" scenarios. Those energy-self-contained motes will further advance the informatization and intellectualization in our society.
We work on energy storage devices and systems for various applications such as power grids, electrified transportation, and Internet of Things. Our research efforts cover modeling and characterization of energy storage technologies (e.g., batteries and supercapacitors) as well as design and analytics of energy storage applications.
