ECE Professor G. Kumar Venayagamoorthy has recently been appointed Series Editor for the IEEE Press Series on Power and Energy Systems.
The series focuses on the areas of energy conversion, power delivery, power systems, industry applications, and industrial and power electronics theory, practice, and applications. While emphasizing the practical aspects of its areas of coverage, the Series strives to provide the reader with comprehensive treatments of the fundamental underpinnings of the most recent developments. The series was previously known as the IEEE Press Series on Power Engineering, and previous Series Editors were Late Dr. Mohammed E El-Hawary (Fellow of many professional bodies) and Late Dr. Paul M Anderson (FIEE, Member NAE).
Professor Venayagamoorthy is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), UK and the South African Institute of Electrical Engineers (SAIEE). He is a Senior Member of the International Neural Network Society (INNS). He was a member of the Board of Governors of INNS (2009-2011, 2011 to 2014).
Over the last 25 years, Dr. Venayagamoorthy’s research contributions have primarily emphasized on the development and implementation of advanced computational methods and artificial intelligence based algorithms for smart grid applications (e.g. nonlinear modeling and control of power systems, power system optimization, predictions of wind and solar energies, energy management systems, wide area monitoring and control systems, dynamic optimal power flow, plug-in electric vehicles, micro-grid systems). His recent focuses in development of synchrophasor applications, and situational awareness and intelligence systems for electric power control center operations and management. Other research activities of Dr. Venayagamoorthy has been in the applications of computational methods have been in the area of sensor networks, cybersecuirty and signal processing.
