Personal profile


Energy transition from micro grids towards future integrated system requires extensive research on the complex network and on uncertainty reduction, to optimally invoke local flexibility resources.

Research profile

Phuong Nguyen is an associate professor with the research group Electrical Energy Systems at the TU/e department of Electrical Engineering. His research interests include applications of ICT in smart energy systems, distributed state estimation, control and operation of the power system, distributed and computational intelligence, and applications in the future power delivery system. He is a founder of the digital Power & Energy Systems lab (digi-PES) which aims to enable an energy transition from micro energy grids towards the future integrated energy system. This laboratory environment is a cyber-physical ecosystem for students and researchers to explore innovations in various energy-related aspects of (but not limited to) nano/micro-grids, local energy communities, local flexibility/energy markets, optimal power/energy flow, and congestion management. Hand-in-hand with emerging (big) data and Internet-of-Things (IoT) domains, such research provides a foundation for comprehensive data-driven and inter-dependency models of energy system integration.

Academic background

Phuong H. Nguyen obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Hanoi University of Science and Technology (Vietnam) in 2002, and his Master's degree from the Asian Institute of Technology (Bangkok, Thailand) in 2004. Until 2006, he worked as a researcher at the Power Engineering Consulting Company No. 1, Electricity of Vietnam. He then started his PhD research at the Electrical Energy Systems research group at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e, The Netherlands). In 2010, he obtained his doctorate with his thesis entitled 'Multi-Agent System based Active Distribution Networks'. In 2013, after being employed as a postdoc, he was appointed assistant professor at the same group. He was a Visiting Researcher with the Real-Time Power and Intelligent Systems (RTPIS) Laboratory of Clemson University (USA) in 2012 and 2013.
