#IAS #PES #real-time #Opal-RT


6:00 – Check-in and Networking

6:30 – Dinner Served

7:00 – Presentation

8:00 – Adjourn

Real time application to intergration of DER in Microgrids/Power System  

Summary: The North American power grid is currently undergoing a massive transformation to decarbonize the existing energy supply by interconnecting huge amounts of variable renewable resources supported primarily by power electronics-based converters.  Consequently, it becomes critically important to understand the changing grid dynamics and ensure its reliability and resilience.

Real time application to integration of DER in Microgrids/Power system


Dr. Aditya Ashok 

Dr. Aditya Ashok is the Director of Energy Systems at OPAL-RT Corporation and is responsible for managing their R&D projects in the US as well as for collaborating with various energy sector stakeholders including national labs, universities, vendors, and utilities to pursue new research funding opportunities.

Prior to joining OPAL-RT Corporation, he was a Senior Research Engineer and a Team leader in the Electricity Infrastructure and Buildings division at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in Richland, WA (Feb. 2016 – Feb. 2023).

Aditya received his doctoral degree in Electrical Engineering from Iowa State University in May 2017. His research interests include leveraging high-fidelity, real-time simulation with hardware in the loop to develop, refine, and validate resilient controls and protection algorithms for power electronics-based distributed energy resources in the grid, development of cyber-physical testbeds for smart grid studies, smart grid cybersecurity, and cyber-physical situational awareness to name a few.

He is a senior member of IEEE, an active member of IEEE Power System Communications and Cybersecurity Committee (PSCCC) and a reviewer for several top-tier IEEE journals such as the IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid.
