Sample Accomplishments


A problem of determining the losses of interconnected power systems led him to conceive a piecewise procedure he called "Diakoptics" for solving large scale systems by tearing in this approach, the subsystems of the larger system are first solved, and then the solutions of these subsystems are modified to take their interconnection into consideration.
