Prof. M. A. Pai

Dr M.A.Pai is Professor Emeritus at the University of Illinois, where he was on the Faculty as Professor from 1981-2003. His research interests includes Large Scale Power System Dynamics, stability and Control. In addition, Computational issues, Model Reduction, Sensitivity Analysis of such systems have been part of his research. In recent years system aspects of Smart Grid, Micro Grid, Renewable Energy Sources and their integration with the main grid are being investigated. He has been a consultant to the U.P State Electricity Board in India in Computer Applications to Power Systems from 1971 -79. He is now a consultant to PNNL in the area of Model Reduction and Dynamic Security of Power System using PMU measured data. He has over 125 publications in Journals and major Conferences, Over 6 Chapters in edited research monographs.

He got his Bachelor degree from University of Madras, India in 1953, Master's and Doctorate degrees from UC Berkeley in 1957 and 1961 respectively. He was acting Asst. Professor at UC Berkley 1961-62 and UCLA 1962-63. He was on the Faculty of IIT Kanpur from 1963-81 and developed both the Teaching as well as the R and D programs in Control and Power. He has held visiting Prof. positions at Memorial university of Newfoundland, Canada and at Iowa State University. Dr Pai's industrial experience includes working as a Power Engineer in Bombay Electric Supply and Transport undertaking from 1953-1957.

Prof Pai has written seven books both from a teaching and research perspective. He was the Series Editor of Springer Series in Power and Energy systems from 1996 -2013, Over 20 books were published during that period. His books on Power System Stability by Lyapunov's method have influenced research in that area in a major way. His research in model reduction of large power systems is well known.
