Phuong H. Nguyen was born in Hanoi, Vietnam. After completing Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering in 2002 at Hanoi University of Science and Technology, Vietnam in 2002, he joined the Master program in the Electrical Power System Management group, Electrical Energy department at the Asian Institute of Technology in Bangkok, Thailand. He graduated in 2004 with his thesis entitled “Transient Stability and Contingency Ranking”. From 2004 to 2006, he worked as a researcher at the Power Engineering Consulting Company No. 1, Electricity of Vietnam. Since 2006, he joined the Electrical Energy Systems group, Electrical Engineering department at the Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands as a PhD researcher. He worked on a national funded project entitled “Electrical Infrastructure of the Future”, of which the scientific results were presented in his PhD dissertation entitled “Multi-Agent System based Active Distribution Networks”.
By the end of 2010, he received the Ph.D. degree and was employed at the same group as a postdoctoral researcher. Since 2013, he has become an assistant professor at the same group. He was a Visiting Researcher with the Real-Time Power and Intelligent Systems (RTPIS) Laboratory, Clemson University, USA, in 2012 and 2013. He was the program and paper review chair of the IEEE PowerTech 2015 conference at Eindhoven. 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 has published more than 60 research papers in peer-reviewed top ranked journals and top class international conference.
