 Areas of Interest:

Power system dynamics and stability; Power system control; Fast energy storage and renewable energy integration.

 Current Work:

My current research is focused on designing controllers and identifying the best locations for fast energy storage systems to improve power system dynamics. In this regards, poorly damped low frequency oscillations and electric frequency excursions are one of the main features of interest.
