Reliability Analysis

The work in this area focuses on understanding the impact on power system  performance of uncertainty in the physical layer for generation and transmission, and the cyber layer for communication and control that arises from random and human-induced faults. Work in this area has been a constant since my arrival at Illinois, although the applications in which I have focused have substantially evolved  over the years.
