Home page of Sid Suryanarayanan at CSU



Broadly, I work in the area of modern electric power systems. Specifically, I work on design, operation, and economics of finite-inertia power systems, applications of cyber-physical social systems (CPSS) concepts to emerging Smart Grids, and integration of renewable energy to electric grids. I direct the Advanced Power Engineering Laboratory (APEL) in the Dept. of ECE at CSU.

Some examples of my sponsored research projects include:

  A scalable sustainability-based approach to the emerging Smart Grid (NSF)

  Real-time hardware-in-the-loop experimentation for microgrids (INL)

  Home energy management systems based on end-user behavioral aspects (NREL)

  High performance computing in Smart Grid resource allocation (EI, CSU)

  Resource allocation and visualization techniques in the Smart Grid 

  Modeling and simulation of a distribution feeder on a real-time platform (NREL)

  Cyber-enabled efficient energy management of structures (CEEMS) (NSF/CSM)

  Interconnection level transmission planning analysis (DOE/WECC)

  Complexity in design of µgrids (CSU Clean Energy Supercluster)

  Verifiable algorithms for reconfigurable microgrids (JISEA/NREL)

  Implications of Smart Grid Initiative on distribution engineering (PSerc)

  A holistic approach to customer-driven microgrids (NSF)

  A notional mission-specific microgrid for a military campus (NREL/USMC)
