Abed co-PI of a new NSF SGER grantISR Director Eyad Abed (ECE/ISR) is the co-PI of a new National Science Foundation SGER grant, "Optimal Stochastic Unit Response Subject to Ramp and Network Constraints." This one-year grant will address the optimal response of a power utility's thermal plant to price and network uncertainties. The principal investigator is Professor Chung-Li Tseng of the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department. Professor Abed's continuing research projects include an ONR effort, "Nonlinear Dynamics and Control of Supercavitating Bodies," joint with co-PI Professor Balakumar Balachandran of the Mechanical Engineering Department; an NSF grant, "Nonlinear Dynamics-Based Robust Congestion Control," in which ISR Post-Doctoral Research Associate Dr. Priya Ranjan is playing a major role; and an ARO grant, "Dynamics and Control of Biologically Inspired Mobile Networks," pursued jointly with co-PI Professor John Baras (ECE/ISR).
