The aim of this thesis is to design partitioning methods and non-centralized
optimization-based controllers for large-scale complex systems with
time-varying topologies, specifically within the framework of power
networks, while taking into account the interaction between the
partitioning and the control approaches towards improving the closed-loop
system performance. Methodologies from graph theory, distributed optimization, game theory, and MPC will be explored.

The work is under the scope of the following projects:
