Key Words:

load modeling, nonlinear systems, dynamic equivalencing, sensors and apparatus monitoring, stability

Research description:

My research involves the monitoring, modeling and analysis of power systems and their components. I have been involved with research regarding the development of sensors for use in studying fundamental failure mechanisms in transformers, the development of load models, uncertainty analysis in large-scale power system simulations, reduced-order modeling, and nonlinear dynamics in power systems.

Lab Facilities:

The MIT Laboratory for Electromagnetic and Electronic Systems provides space and equipment that has been useful for our work. This includes a Couette facility for testing our sensors in a well-monitored transformer-like environment and the MIT pilot transformer facility which was used for developing on-line transformer monitoring techniques.
