Armour Dean’s Distinguished Lecture: Argonne’s Advanced Mobility and Grid Integration Technology Research

The Armour College of Engineering Dean’s Distinguished Lecture will be presented by Thomas Wallner, manager of the Advanced Mobility and Grid Integration Technology Research section at Argonne National Laboratory’s Transportation and Power Systems Division, on Friday, October 21, from 12:50–1:40 p.m. in Room 108 in Siegel Hall.

Abstract

Following a brief introduction of the speaker and the newly formed Transportation and Power Systems Division, this talk reviews highlights of Argonne’s ongoing experimental work characterizing the energy impacts of advanced driver assistance/automated driving systems (ADAS/ADS) and discuss vehicle-grid integration activities at the lab’s Smart Energy Plaza. Featured projects employ novel experimental capabilities including Argonne’s dyno XiL setup, mobile data acquisition system, and enabling grid integration technologies developed at Argonne’s EV-Smart Grid Interoperability Center.
