Dr. Gurupraanesh RAMAN - Research Fellow at the Singapore-ETH Centre
Praanesh is currently a postdoctoral research fellow under the Future Resilient Systems project, involved with mitigating data corruption in power systems with high renewable integration.
He received the Ph.D. degree in Power and Energy Systems from the National University of Singapore in 2021, where he was the recipient of the President's Graduate Fellowship. He received the gold medal and the President's medal in 2016 for his undergraduate work at the National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli, India.
His research interests include the stability analysis and control of islanded microgrids, with a focus on the development of control strategies to expand the stability region of droop-controlled inverters, and for handling stability contingencies.
Dr. Gururaghav RAMAN - Research Fellow at the Singapore-ETH Centre
Raghav received his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computing Engineering from the National University of Singapore, where he was a President's Graduate Fellow from 2016 - 2020. His Ph.D. research investigated how individual consumers' behavior could be manipulated by an adversary using strategically designed disinformation in order to attack a nation's critical infrastructure such as power grids and urban traffic networks. He has a B.Tech. degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering and was a gold medalist at the National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli, India in 2016.
Raghav is currently a Research Fellow at the Singapore-ETH Centre working on the Future Resilient Systems programme. His research focuses on consumer behavior in power systems, and how it could be leveraged to improve the system resilience.
Andrey GORBUNOV - Ph.D. Candidate
Andrey received his Bachelor in Applied Mathematics and Physics with honors from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) in 2017. By the end of the third year at (MIPT), he started to work at the Institute of Energy Systems under Dmitry A. Novitsky’s supervision. Firstly, he was involved in the development of a group regulator of active and reactive power for the isolated microgrid. His next project was the development of a new functional architecture for the System Operator of Russia, where Andrey Gorbunov investigated the connection between selections of generating equipment (Unit Commitment problem) with intraday optimization on balancing market (Optimal Power Flow problem). In July 2015, Andrey defended the Bachelor’s thesis at MIPT on this topic.
Moreover from September 2015 to 2017, Andrey studied at Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (SkolTech) for his Master degree. During this time, he investigated possible applications of PMU measurements under the supervision of Prof. Janusz Bialek. During the summer internship at the Institute of Energy Systems, he was involved in the development of a method for automatically determining participation in the general primary frequency control for the System Operator of Russia. In July 2017, he graduated from SkolTech with the best research thesis award.
Andrey is currently a Ph.D. candidate at PEng Lab. His research focuses on studying the stability of microgrids in power distribution systems.
ZHANG Jingqiu - Ph.D. Candidate
Jingqiu received both his B.ENG. and Master degree in Electrical Engineering from Tianjin University in China in 2016, 2019, respectively. He worked on the control as well as fault analysis on HVDC and proposed quantified methods to calculate critical voltage drop considering different fault moments. His bachelor thesis investigated allocation algorithm for active power considering responding speeds of different inverters.
Jingqiu joined PEng Lab in Jan, 2019. He is currently working on developing a cyber resilient grid.
YANG Yang - Ph.D. Candidate
Yang received his B.ENG. and Master degree in Electrical Engineering at Zhejiang University (ZJU), Hangzhou, China in 2017 and 2020, respectively. He also received the Diplôme d'Ingénieur at CentraleSupélec, Paris, France in 2020. He was a recipient of Chinese Government Scholarship and France Eiffel Excellence Scholarship. His master thesis investigated issues in reliability analysis and optimization research of power system considering down operating reserve.
He joined PEng Lab. in Aug. 2020, and is currently pursuing his Ph.D. degree at the National University of Singapore under the President's Graduate Fellowship programme. His research focuses on cyber resilience of power system.
