Joydeep Mitra elected fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
Michigan State University faculty member Joydeep Mitra has been named a fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) for contributions to the development of power system reliability methods. IEEE is the world’s largest professional organization for the advancement of technology. The prestigious fellow recognition became effective Jan. 1, 2019.
Mitra is an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering, director of MSU’s Energy Reliability & Security (ERiSe) Laboratory, and a senior faculty associate at the Institute of Public Utilities.
The IEEE honor is the highest grade of membership in IEEE. It is recognized by the technical community as an important career achievement. IEEE selects less than 0.1 percent of its voting members for this designation each year.
Mitra conducts research in power system modeling, analysis, stability, control, planning and simulation. He is widely published in power systems reliability analysis and reliability-based planning. He is co-author of the book, “Electric Power Grid Reliability Evaluation: Models and Methods” and of IEEE Standard 762, a standard on reliability reporting. He serves as editor for the IEEE Transactions on Power Systems and Power Engineering Letters.
His research has been funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Energy, U.S. National Laboratories, and several electric utilities.
He received a doctoral degree in electrical engineering from Texas A&M University and a bachelor’s degree with honors in electrical engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur.
