Biography and CV

Anurag K. Srivastava is an Adjunct Professor of electric power engineering at Washington State University and the director of the Smart Grid Demonstration and Research Investigation Lab (SGDRIL) within the Energy System Innovation Center (ESIC). Starting July 2021, Dr. Srivastava moved to the West Virginia University as a Raymond J. Lane Professor and Chairperson of the Computer Science and Electrical Engineering Department. He also has a joint appointment as a Senior Scientist with the Pacific Northwest National Lab (PNNL). He received his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology in 2005. In past years, he has worked in different capacity at the Réseau de transport d´électricité in France; RWTH Aachen University in Germany; PEAK RC, Idaho National Laboratory, Pacific Northwest National Lab, PJM Interconnection, Schweitzer Engineering Lab (SEL), GE Grid Solutions, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Mississippi State University in USA; Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur in India; as well as at Asian Institute of Technology in Thailand. His research interest includes data-driven algorithms for power system operation and control including resiliency analysis. Dr. Srivastava high impact research projects resulted in tools installed at the utility control center supported for more than $50M by US Department of Energy, National Science Foundation, Siemens Corporate Research, Electric Power Research Institute, Schweitzer Engineering Lab, Power System Engineering Research Center, Office of Naval Research and several National Labs. He is a senior member of the IEEE, chair of the IEEE Power & Energy Society’s (PES) PEEC committee, co-chair of the microgrid working group, vice-chair of power system operation SC, chair of PES voltage stability working group, chair of PES synchrophasors applications working group, co-chair of distributed optimization application in power grid, vice-chair of tools for power grid resilience TF, past-chair of the IEEE PES career promotion subcommittee, past-chair of the IEEE PES student activities committee, past vice-chair of the IEEE synchrophasor conformity assessment program and member of CIGRE C4C2-58 Voltage Stability, C4.47/ C2.25 Resilience WG, CIGRE 2.18 Wide Area Monitoring Protection and Control Systems – Decision Support for System Operators, CIGRE D2.52 AI Application and Technology in Power Industry. He organized NSF sponsored “Data analytics workshop for the power grid resiliency” in 2018, Siemens sponsored “data analytics for the smart grid” workshop in 2017, North American Power Symposium in 2014, and IEEE sponsored workshop on Testing and validation of synchrophasor devices and applications in 2012. He also co-chaired Workshop on “Modeling and simulation of Cyber-Physical Energy Systems” supported by IEEE and IES in 2016-2020. Dr. Srivastava is serving or served as an editor of the IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid, IEEE Transactions on Power Systems, IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications, and Elsevier Sustainable Computing and guest or past editor for numbers of other IEEE Transactions and IET Journal. He has delivered 30+ keynotes/ tutorials/ IEEE distinguished lecture in more than 15 countries. He is author of more than 300 technical publications including a book on power system security and 4 patents.
