Synopsis: Autonomous power system control for a spacecraft is an enabling factor for human travel in deep-space.  The design requires the utmost levels of integration, control, and reliability.  This presentation provides an overview of the power system control designs to overcome these challenges with specific applications to the Gateway, a lunar-base, and future space vehicles that will take humans beyond Low Earth Orbit.  The contents of this presentation should also be of interest to professionals in Microgrid, Smart Grid and related Power System industries; from the perspectives of control system, power distribution and modeling.

Our Speaker & Presentation: 
Marc A. Carbone is a Controls Engineer at the NASA Glenn Research Center in the power management and distribution branch.  He is also a Ph.D. Candidate in Systems and Control Engineering at the Case Western Reserve University, focusing on model-based fault detection and diagnosis in electrical power systems. His areas of expertise include electrical power system control, autonomous systems, stability analysis and estimation. Marc received a B.S. degree in engineering physics from John Carroll University, Cleveland, OH in 2014 and an M.S. degree in Systems and Control Engineering from the Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH in 2016.
