Research Summary:

As the trend towards electrification continues, improving thermal management control has become an important consideration in designing reliable systems. My current research is to understand and build models of electro-thermal systems so that we can quickly simulate and analyze how these complex multi-domain power systems perform. Our models allow us to analyze the sensitivity of each of the system components and inputs on the plant. We are developing these tools to aid in the co-design of the plant and controller which can produce the desired response during a mission profile.

Research Interests:

  • Dynamic Modeling and Control
