While developing mathematical models for keeping aloft individual aircraft, whole squadrons, or end-to-end systems for the U.S. DoD logistics networks after suffering damage, Massoud Amin, chairman of the IEEE Smart Grid Newsletter, discovered how power systems and interdependent coupled networks for fuel supply, energy and power, communication and energy markets could be retrofitted or designed to automatically stabilize and correct themselves. He carried those ideas first to the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and then to the University of Minnesota, where he holds the Honeywell/H.W. Sweatt Chair in Technological Leadership.
