Unlisted key words: Distributed Generation

Research description:

Research interests focus on the application of power electronics to utility systems and technical issues which arise from the restructuring of the power utility system. This work includes interfacing micro-turbines and fuel cells to the distribution grid; control of power systems through FACTS controllers, use of power electronics in distribution systems, harmonic interactions, simulation methods, power electronic circuits and converter. He is a Fellow of IEEE, an expert advisor to CIGRE SC14, and chairman of IEEE WG on modeling and analysis of distributed resources.
