Priyanko Guha Thakurta is a power systems engineer specializing in transmission systems (especially Flexible Alternating Current Transmission System and High Voltage Direct Current). He received his Ph.D. from the University of Leuven (KULEUVEN) in Belgium in 2015. He is particularly interested in improving daily operations of power system with the help of controllable devices, that has become a challenge for the system operators in the light of increased intermittency due to renewables.

Optimization of power system operation

Power system control, operation and planning, international coordination with respect to power system operations and application of FACTS and HVDC for a more flexible system operation.
