Energy System Control and Operation (ESCO) Laboratory

About Us

ESCO Lab is developing technologies for energy system operation and control. Specifically, we are focusing on DC grid, multi energy system (MES), and renewable energy integration

We are currently working with many partners including Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO), Korea Electrotechnology Resesearch Institute (KERI), and Korea Power Exchange (KPX)

We are currently seeking to recruit researchers and graduate students that can work with us. If you are interested in joining us, please email to Gyu-Sub Lee at

Current vacancies (as of July 2023):

Also, we have positions available for undergraduate students who are interested in ESCO lab.  please contact us.


Research Topics

DC Grid

High-voltage DC (HVDC), Medium-voltage DC (MVDC) technology to integrate power electronic-based resources into power grid

Multi Energy System

Power-to-gas (P2G), power-to-hydrogen (P2H2), power-to-heat (P2H) technology for optimal operation of multi energy system

Renewable Energy Integration
