Stability and Control of Inverter-Based Resources 

Power electronics has become a foundational technology for modernizing electric power grids. The massive integration of inverter-based resources is radically changing power system dynamics. The control dynamics of inverters tend to interact with each other and with the grid, leading to several stability problems. This talk will share a series of real-world stability challenges, and address the recent advances in analytical modeling and robust control techniques of inverter-based resources.  


Xiongfei Wang received a Ph.D. degree in energy technology from Aalborg University, Aalborg, Denmark, in 2013. From 2009 he has been with the Department of Energy Technology, Aalborg University, where he became an Assistant Professor in 2014, an Associate Professor in 2016, a Professor and Leader of Electronic Power Grid (eGrid) Research Group in 2018. He is also a part-time Full Professor at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden, from 2020. His current research interests include modeling and control of power electronic converters and systems, stability and power quality of power-electronics-dominated power systems, high-power converters.   

Dr. Wang serves as a Member-at-Large of Administrative Committee for the IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS) in 2020-2022, a Co-Editor-in-Chief for the IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics Letters, and as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Journal of Emerging and Selected Topics in Power Electronics (JESTPE).

He was selected into Aalborg University Strategic Talent Management Program in 2016. He has received six Prize Paper Awards in the IEEE Transactions and conferences, the 2018 Richard M. Bass Outstanding Young Power Electronics Engineer Award, the 2019 IEEE PELS Sustainable Energy Systems Technical Achievement Award, the 2020 IEEE Power & Energy Society Prize Paper Award, the 2020 JESTPE Star Associate Editor Award, and the Highly Cited Researcher in the Web of Science in 2019-2020.
