Emeritus Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Ph.D. Electrical Engineering University of Wisconsin 1991

Professor Overbye is concerned with improving power system trust by researching techniques to better glean information from the ever-growing stream of data generated by the normal operation of the power grid. If we could figure out how to properly present this data, human operators will have a fighting chance to address and contain blackouts before they cascade out of control. This work is part of the project "Effective Power System Control Center Visualization" which is funded by PSERC (the Power Systems Engineering Research Center), an NSF IUCRC.
