Aranya Chakrabortty

Professor

Dr. Chakrabortty is an Associate Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering at NC State. His main research areas are in modeling, dynamics, stability analysis, and control of large-scale power systems at both transmission and distribution levels. His most recent research interests are in the applications of cyber-physical system theory for distributed control of power system networks, and also in online learning of uncertain grid models for real-time computation of grid controllers. His group is also working on evaluating the impacts of renewable penetration and power electronics in conventional grid models from a dynamics and stability perspective, and using this knowledge for retuning existing controllers for enhanced stability and performance of the grid.
