Sandia National Laboratories
Exceptional service in the national interest
Sandia leverages expertise and capabilities across the laboratory to investigate the integration, operation, and control of wind power into energy systems to increase system reliability and resilience. As wind power deployment increases, new research challenges and opportunities continue to arise in a range of topics including:
The Microgrids, Infrastructure, and Advanced Controls Launchpad (MIRACL) project is a four-year research effort funded by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Wind Energy Technologies Office, led by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory with partners at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Idaho National Laboratory and Sandia. The project aims to increase deployment of wind turbines in wind-hybrid distributed energy systems to provide flexibility, security, and resilience to distribution systems and microgrids.
