About Research Publications Teaching Group


Our research group addresses modeling, analysis, and control challenges to increase renewable integration in power and energy systems. In particular, we are interested in the interplay of power electronics circuits within small footprint power systems. Our philosophy in adopting a circuits-to-systems approach is guided by the goals of ensuring sustainability, reliability, and cost effectiveness in next-generation power and energy systems.
