Grid Engineering for Accelerated Renewable Energy Deployment (GEARED): FEEDER Consortium

Grid Engineering for Accelerated Renewable Energy Deployment (GEARED):FEEDER Consortium
FEEDER is one of three regional consortia under the US DOE Grid Engineering for Accelerated Renewable Energy Deployment (GEARED) program. Pitt’s role is to participate in course sharing amongst the other universities and to develop new courses, including “Electromechanical Design” in collaboration with UT Dallas, and “Distribution System Simulation Methods” in collaboration with Florida State and San Diego State. When Pitt joined FEEDER, some of our existing industry partners(Duquesne Light, Dominion Virginia Power, MEPPI) joined the FEEDER advisory board, which meets at least annually with FEEDER schools to help ensure that our curricula meets industry needs, for both new graduates and for continuing education of working professionals.
