Projects per year
Milana Plecas is a Research Associate at the Electronic and Electrical Engineering Department at the University of Strathclyde. Milana is working on the Horizon 2020 SmartNet project. Her role involves investigation of different ways to integrate Distributed Energy Resources in the power system networks and electricity markets. It includes developing models and tools that can enable participation of DERs in electricity markets and provision of ancillary services.
Before joining the SmartNet project in January 2016, Milana was working on an industrial project: the Accelerating Renewable Connections with SP Energy Networks since February 2014. Her role involved distribution network analysis to evaluate the effects of the integration of renewable generation into the network.
Milana received a Master degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Novi Sad, Serbia, with a specialization in the field of telecommunications, in 2010. Following that, she was awarded a PhD scholarship from the University of Strathclyde under the EPSRC grant – Novel Asynchronous Algorithms and Software for Large Sparse Systems. Her research has been focused on developing scalable numerical optimization methods for power system analysis tools through the utilisation of High Performance Computing.
