Aranya Chakrabortty


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.
