Khoi Tien Vu attended the University of Washington (UW), Seattle, WA from 1982 to 1990. He majored in Electrical Engineering (BS '85, MS '87 and PhD '90). During 1990-91, he was a post-doctoral research associate at the same university. His dissertation on the topic of Voltage Instability in Electric Power Systems has since served as the basis of study/special projects for senior-level and graduate students in power engineering at UW. In 1991, Dr. Vu joined Clemson University in South Carolina as a visiting faculty. In late 1993, he joined the Transmission Technology Institute, the R&D arm of Asea Brown Boveri (ABB) in the US, where he is responsible for studying and evaluating emerging technologies for power-system application, and developing protection relays and control strategies to counter instability of large-scale power systems. Dr. Vu authored several articles from Systems&Control Letters, IEEE Trans. on Circuits & Systems, book chapters for the EE Handbook (CRC Press) and for a Springer-Verlag book on Control of Power Systems.
