Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Andrea Benigni received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from Politecnico di Milano in 2005 and 2008, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree from RWTH Aachen University in 2013. From 2014 to 2019, he was an Assistant Professor with the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of South Carolina, Columbia, SC, USA. While at USC, Prof. Benigni developed an independent research group acquiring third part funding from the Office of Naval Research, National Science Foundation and private industries. His research focused on the development of simulation, monitoring and control solution for multi-modal energy systems. Major achievement during this period of time: -development of a parallelization method that allowed the smallest ever achieved time resolution for real-time simulation of power electronics systems -leading of an industry founded project where a new concept of DC microgrid operation and protection was conceptualized, verified in the lab and deployed in the field in less than a year. In 2019, he joined RWTH-Aachen as professor of “Methods for Simulating Energy Systems” and Forschungszentrum Jülich as director of the Institute of Energy and Climate Research – Energy Systems Engineering (IEK-10). Prof. Beningi is also actively serving the scientific community, participating in several working groups and technical committee. Most noticeable, he has recently been elected chair of the smart grids technical committee of the IEEE industrial electronic society.
