He has BSEE and MSEE degrees from the University of Toledo and an MBA from the University of Pittsburgh. He was vice chairman of the IEEE SCC 22 Power Quality Standards Coordinating Committee and a technical advisor for the IEC SC77A (International Power Quality Standards). He has taught seminars and workshops around the world had has worked with electric utilities and end users to solve power quality problems.

Surya Santoso

Dr. Surya Santoso (Austin, TX) is an Associate Professor at the University of Texas. He earned MSE and PhD degrees from the University of Texas at Austin in electrical engineering. Dr. Santoso's research interests are in electric power quality and wind power systems. His most significant contributions are in pioneering and advancing the engineering science of root-cause analysis of electric power quality disturbance phenomena, education of electric power quality, and in the time-domain modeling and simulation of electromagnetic transients and wind power systems for integration studies. While working in the industry, he was a principal investigator for over twenty industrial and utility studies in power quality and wind power integration. His research in academia has been supported by EPRO, TVA, ONR, NSF, NREL, Electrotek, and Manitoba HVDC Research Center.
