The research topic regards the analysis and control of stochastic hybrid systems with application to large scale complex systems, in particular power networks.
More precisely, the objective of my research activity is to develop methods and computational tools to support the analysis and control of dynamical systems involving the interaction between continuous, discrete and stochastic phenomena. The aim is to establish links between existing methods of model checking, optimal control, and randomized methods, and to leverage their complementary strengths to enable novel applications for large-scale, complex systems.
The methods will be tested on a case study in new-generation power networks, characterized by renewable energy sources and distributed generation.
