IOANNIS LESTAS Engineering
Fellow and Director of Studies
Professor of Control Engineering
The research of Professor Lestas is associated with the analysis, modeling and control of large scale networks, using advanced methodologies in control theory and optimization, with a focus on the control of power systems and smart grids. Areas of interest include distributed control and optimisation of microgrids, control of converter-based grids, decentralized schemes for frequency and voltage control, control of hybrid AC/DC networks, demand side management, and the development of generalized frameworks through which robust stability guarantees can be provided despite the complexity of these networks.
