Professor Alejandro Domínguez-García’s research interests lie at the interface of system reliability theory and control, with special emphasis on applications to electric power systems and power electronics. In particular, the problems he is currently working on involve i) assessment of the impact of intermittent renewable resources on power system dynamic operation, ii) development of fault diagnosis strategies for electrical energy systems for enhanced reliability, iii) development of reliability models of cyber and physical layers in power systems, and iv) development of coordination and control strategies for utilizing distributed energy resources to provide ancillary services. Domínguez-García received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, in 2007 and the degree of Electrical Engineer from the University of Oviedo (Spain) in 2001. After finishing his Ph.D., he spent some time as a postdoctoral research associate at the Laboratory for Electromagnetic and Electronic Systems of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Prior to joining MIT as a graduate student, he was with the Department of Electrical Engineering of the University of Oviedo, where he held the position of Assistant Professor. He has been an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois since 2008. He received the NSF CAREER Award in 2010.
