Paul's expertise is in the design and analysis of control systems for wind energy.
Paul co-designed the control system used for field testing of advanced control systems
on the CARTs, located at the NWTC. Since joining NREL, he has researched topics such
as the use of modern control methods for wind turbine control systems, the use of
lidar for wind turbine control, and independent blade pitch control. His current research
topics include active power control (APC) from wind, control of floating wind turbines,
and wind plant control.
