The main focus of my research is how to achieve stable, secure, sustainable and economic supply of electricity at high levels of penetration of renewables by taking advantage of the advances in Information and Communications Technologies (ICT). My particular expertise is in Smart Grids, energy system integration, power system dynamics, power system control, power system economics, preventing electricity blackouts. My research is interdisciplinary and I work closely with mathematicians, physicists, economists and social scientists. I am especially interested in application of advanced mathematical methods to solve problems in energy systems.
2 books, 2 chapters in books, 8 published reports and over 180 research papers including nearly 60 refereed journal papers. The publications have attracted over 7500 citations (including nearly 3600 since 2014). The two seminal sole-authored papers on the electricity tracing methodology have attracted over 1550 citations. A seminal paper on the risk-limiting dispatch in smart grids has attracted nearly 500 citations. My h-index is 35, i10-index is 70 (all data as of February 2019, Google Scholar).
A book I have co-authored is widely used world-wide and has attracted nearly 2200 citations. The third edition has been published in 2019
