The award will provide $500,000 over a five-year period for Dr. Sun to establish a new methodology for power system stability analysis and control based on understanding, decoupling and control of nonlinear modal dynamics. The outcomes of the project are expected to create broad impacts on both the power industry and the research community in interconnected power systems and other networked dynamic systems.
