December 2020- Ning Lu, Ph.D. was honored with elevation to IEEE Fellow in recognition of her outstanding contributions to the field of electrical and computer engineering. Dr. Lu was elevated for contributions to load modeling and control methods for providing demand side grid services.
“Becoming an IEEE Fellow is a particular honor since it is the result of peers recognizing the significance and impact of one’s contributions,” said Dr. Dan Stancil, the Department Head, “It also reflects well on the Department and University by demonstrating once again that our faculty and students are involved in innovative and cutting-edge research.”
Prior to joining NC State in 2013, Lu was a senior research engineer with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. She was also a substation design engineer with the Shenyang Electric Power Survey and Design Institute from 1993 to 1998. She has conducted and managed research projects in modeling and analysis of power system load behaviors, wide-area energy storage management systems, renewable integration, climate impact on power grids, and smart grid modeling and diagnosis.
