Abdel-Aty Edris


  “Holistic Understanding of Electric Grid Performance”


Abdel-Aty Edris, IEEE Fellow. Dr. Edris has a broad experience in utility and industrial power systems, including power system analysis, dynamics, control, and problem mitigation. He has extensive project management expertise, and has more than 30 years of industry experience, including positions at  ABB, EPRI, Siemens Energy, and Quanta Technology. Dr. Edris is currently a Sr.  Manager at Exponent, Inc. in Menlo Park, California, USA 

Dr. Edris specializes in solving challenging problems from their main root cause rather than treating or mitigating the effect of the problems

Dr. Edris is an international top expert in managing and controlling electric grids using Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS) and High Voltage Direct Current technologies (HVDC). He managed the design, development, and installation of the world’s first FACTS installations at TVA, AEP, and NYPA. He also has extensive expertise in reactive power compensation, dynamic thermal circuit ratings, power electronics, smart grid technologies, integration of renewable energy resources, and energy storage. The decisions made for selecting these technologies were based on transmission system planning, root-cause analysis of system reliability, and the development of sound value propositions. Dr. Edris holds numerous patents in the US and Sweden. These include patents related to the mitigation of subsynchronous resonance, maintaining synchronism under fault conditions, and smart inverters for distributed energy integration. In addition, Dr. Edris has a wealth of teaching experience in Egypt, the USA, Sweden, China, South Africa, and Middle East countries.

Dr. Edris hold B.Sc. from Cairo University, M.Sc. from Ain Shams University, and Ph. D. from Chalmers University, Gothenburg, Sweden
