The CUNY Smart Grid Interdependencies Laboratory (SGIL) at the City College of New York is a research group focused on: the rising interdependencies between the power grid and other critical infrastructures; power system resilience; microgrids; renewable energy; and electric vehicles. We use our expertise with power system fundamentals, control, operation and protection, as well as analytical and machine-learning based tools to contribute to the national call for a greener, more efficient, reliable and resilient power grid. The following list summarizes some of the research thrusts that we are currently focusing on.

  • We utilize our expertise with power system fundamentals to contribute to the national call for a greener, more efficient, reliable and resilient electric grid.

  • Prof. Mohamed receives the NSF CAREER Award.

  • We employ concepts of complex network analysis and AI to analyze and mitigate the rising inter dependencies between the smart grid and other critical infrastructures.
