Welcome to the Power Information Technology Laboratory in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Tennessee.

The Power IT Lab conducts research and development work in power grid monitoring and large system dynamics analysis. On the monitoring side, it has two main functions. It first serves as the data center for the FNET/GridEye project, which collects high-resolution wide-area frequency data from Frequency Disturbance Recorder (FDR) sensors located throughout the North American power grids and around the world. The Power IT Lab is also used to develop hardware and server software for power frequency dynamics monitoring, as well as design, testing, and calibration of the FDRs.

Our lab is located in the Min H. Kao Building on the UT campus.
