Liang Min is the Grid Operations Leader in LLNL’s National Security Engineering Division. He joined LLNL in November 2011 and specializes in research on developing computation methods for the solution of power system operations and applying probabilistic methods to power system planning. In addition, he is dedicated to developing new techniques and methodologies that enable reliable and efficient grid operations by integrating renewable generation and demand options into planning for a carbon-constrained world.
Prior to LLNL, Liang worked at the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) as a Senior Project Manager in the renewable integration, grid operations and planning program. He also led the grid operations research area and managed a team of project managers and contractors charged with delivery of more than 20 projects a year. Liang worked as sub-recipient and EPRI lead of the Entergy’s DOE smart grid project, using synchrophasors to assess voltage stability. For the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, he managed smart grid research projects related to synchrophasors and sensor technologies applications to grid operation.
Liang received a B.S. and M.S. degree in electrical engineering from China’s Tianjin University and a Ph.D. from Texas A&M University. He has published numerous papers in journals and conference proceedings and has served as a panelist and invited speaker in various industry forums. He holds two U.S. patents in the area of measurement based voltage stability assessment.
