Biography

Antonello Monti’s visionary research is delivering advances in providing stable, secure, and efficient energy supply systems in buildings and urban environments. With a focus on automating complex power systems based on network dynamics and information and communication technologies, his power hardware in the loop (PhiL) simulation tools have made it possible to link real-life power equipment to real-time simulation of power systems to validate the impact of dynamics and delay times of algorithms, controllers, converters, and communication systems on electrical distribution grids. He has also been a leader in exploring the potential of cloud-based platforms for complete virtualization of power infrastructures, which will revolutionize how utilities operate by providing service-based energy solutions in extremely short time periods.

An IEEE Senior member, Monti is a professor and institute director with the E. ON Energy Research Center, RWTH Aachen University, Aachen, Germany.
