Research Project Description:

My research focuses on the development of methods enabling a distributed operation of the electric power system with an enhanced communication infrastructure. Specifically, my project has two major objectives: 1) to develop methods for enabling localized but coordinated optimization by the means of agents; 2) to derive an integrated model of communication system and power system and study the inherent vulnerabilities introduced into system operation when relying on increased communication. A distributed optimization framework was formulated and decomposition methods were applied to solve Optimal Power Flow problem. On-going work includes developing a task allocation method in the implementation of distributed optimization to enhance the performance of distributed methods such as reducing convergence time.

Research Interests: Optimization, Communication Networks, Smart Grid, Optimal Power Flow,
