College of Engineering

Dominic Gross is an Assistant Professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. From 2016 to 2019 he was a postdoctoral researcher at the Automatic Control Laboratory of ETH Zürich, Switzerland and he was with Volkswagen Group’s Research Division in Wolfsburg, Germany from 2014 to 2015. He received a Diploma degree in Mechatronics from the University of Kassel, Germany, in 2010, and a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the same university in 2014. His research focuses on grid-forming control of power electronics-interfaced renewable generation such as wind and solar power that is envisioned to be the cornerstone of tomorrow’s resilient zero-carbon power system. Starting from a rigorous foundation in distributed control and optimization of complex networked systems, Gross aims to bridge the gap between power system stability analysis and advanced control of power converters interfacing heterogeneous renewable generation.

  • Control of microgrids and power systems dominated by power electronics
  • Grid-forming control of converter-interfaced renewable generation and energy storage devices
  • Grid-forming control of power converters subject to constraints
  • Distributed control and optimization of complex networked systems
