CARES Research Laboratory

CARES logo

We are a research center located in the Powell Marine Engineering Complex (Bldg. 3027, PMEC) on the campus of Texas A&M University at Galveston, Texas.

Our Research    

Welcome to the Clean And Resilient Energy Systems (CARES) Research Lab Website.

Our research is focused on optimization and control of smart energy networks in particular on the application of power electronics in the control of clean energy resources e.g. solar, wind, tidal and wave energy resources. Further, our research team also works in improving the resiliency of energy system by taking various approaches, e.g. integrating the energy storage systems and changing the paradigm of traditional energy system. The CARES is a results oriented lab which produces a consistent stream of intellectual property and practical products.

Visitors & Interns    

We are very happy to host academic visitors and fellowships. The subject can be in power electronics, power systems, renewable energy such as wind power, solar power, smart grids, microgrid, HVDC, energy storage systems, marine power systems, automotive electronics, etc. We usually do not provide funding for visitors.
