Improvements to the existing electric power grid infrastructure have been identified as a key aspect of the current U.S. strategy to improve energy efficiency, grid reliability, and power security.  Join Dr. Gregory Reed, director of the Electric Power Initiative in the Swanson School of Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh, to learn about advanced power electronics-based technologies and explore the history of the AC vs. DC controversy, dating back to the days of Westinghouse, Tesla, and Edison — and find out why that battle is being renewed today.
