Research Interest

General interests:

  • Resiliency of distributed systems
  • Distributed nonlinear control schemes
  • Resiliency metrics
  • Electrical grid vulnerabilities

With the increasing deployment of renewable energy sources (RES) in modern electrical grids new challenges for a reliable and stable operation arise. Modern electrical grids as cyber physical systems can face threats like hardware and communication failures alike. While hardware failures probably cause cascading failures further damaging infrastructure and thus may prevent a long range transport of energy, communication failures may destabilize electrical grids preventing a technical necessary or economic beneficial distribution. Especially malicious attacks may even try to exploit a concerted failure in the physical as well as the communications system.

We aim to develop control schemes which are able to increase both the robustness and the ability for recovery of distributed systems while operating as economic optimal as possible. By employing controller networks we hope to ensure a safe and reliable grid operation with reduced vulnerabilities.
