Faculty Profile - Miroslav M Begovic
Electrical Energy (Group Chair)
Office: VL E168
Miroslav M. Begovic received his B.S. and M.S. degrees, both in Electrical Engineering, from Belgrade University, Yugoslavia. He received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and joined the faculty of the School of Electrical Engineering at Georgia Tech, where he now holds the position of professor and chair of the Electrical Energy Technical Interest Group.
His studies focus on analysis, monitoring, and control of voltage stability in electrical power systems. His research is concentrated on real-time monitoring systems for control of power system dynamics, protective relaying, distribution network operation, and distributed resources in energy systems. He was actively involved in the design and construction of the 340 kW photovoltaic system on the roof of the Georgia Tech Aquatic Center, which was the largest roof-mounted PV system in the world at the time of its construction in 1996. He has been the project director, or principal investigator, in research projects with total funding of well over $12 million. The research projects included sponsors such as the National Science Foundation, the Office of Naval Research, the Department of Energy, and utilities such as Southern Company, Baltimore Gas & Electric, Commonwealth Edison, and several other sponsors who are members of Georgia Tech's National Electric Energy Testing Research and Applications Center (NEETRAC).
Dr. Begovic consults with industry in the areas of wide area protection and distribution system operation, especially photovoltaic systems. He is an audiophile, music lover, and amateur photographer.
