Power Systems Engineer II
Grid Integration of Renewable Energy
Quynh joined the Hawaii Natural Energy Institute (HNEI) in June 2019 as a Postdoctoral fellow. Quynh received her PhD in Electrical Engineering from University of Palermo, Italy in 2019. Her graduate work focus on studying the state of the art on Optimal Power Flow (OPF) calculation at present in power systems, studying the potential energy resources in an urban energy hub in relation to the urban and buildings features, and finding solution of the energy management problem in urban microgrids with time-series analysis. Currently, Quynh is part of the GridSTART team. She’s studying the production cost model for power system with the integration of renewable energy resources and developing optimization power flow algorithms on distribution power system. She’s also participating in the research and development of advanced power systems solution to enable grid integration of renewable energy while achieving efficient, secure, reliable and resilient grid operations.
