Workshop: Coordinating Onshore AC Grid Operation with Offshore Transmision Design
Shahil Shah is a senior engineer for grid integration at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, CO. He received his Ph.D. degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in Troy, NY. He has been working for the past fifteen years on modeling, control, and stability of wind and PV plants, HVDC transmission systems, and power systems with high levels of inverter-based resources with specific emphasis on impedance-based methods for analyzing the stability of IBR grids. He is leading several DOE projects at NREL on these topics, and he has led the development of groundbreaking impedance measurement system for utility-scale wind turbines and inverters.
He is currently serving as an editor of the IEEE Transactions on Energy Conversion, and he recently received the ESIG Excellence award for leadership in the design and analysis of grid-forming inverter systems. He has been actively contributing to IEEE, IEA, ESIG, and CIGRE working groups focusing on stability of power systems with high levels of inverter-based resources.
