Presentation

0000-0002-1392-4582Gilney Damm is Associate Professor at the Paris-Saclay University, France, in the Laboratoire des Signaux et Systèmes – L2S. He received his Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches in 2010 and Ph.D. in 2001 at Paris-Saclay University; his M.Sc. in automatic control in 1997 and his Bachelor in Electronic Engineer in 1995 at the COPPE – Rio de Janeiro Federal University. His research interests concern nonlinear and adaptive control and observers applied to power systems (SmartGrids, SuperGrid, MicroGrids). His main applications are in the field of large scale renewable energy integration; Multi-Terminal HVDC systems; Variable Speed Pumped Storage Plants; Mixed AC/DC MicroGrids; Control of power generators (transient stabilization, frequency and voltage stability); synchronization of power networks; energy integration in SmartCities.

He has a large experience as coordinator or Work-Package Leader in several European and French research projects as the European Network of Excellence HYCON2 and the European Virtual Smart Grid Lab from the KIC EIT Digital. He is co-leader of the French research forum on SmartGrids.

Currently his main research activities are connected to the Institutes for Energy Transition SuperGrid (on large scale high voltage electrical grids) and Efficacity (on MicroGrids and SmartCities).

He has received the French research excellence grant (Prime d’Excellence Scientifique) since 2008, and is member of the IFAC Technical Committee TC 6.3 Power and Energy Systems since 2015. He is Associate Editor from the European Journal of Control since 2010.
