Professor and Department Head, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering University of Calgary
Dr. Bill Rosehart is an expert in complex power systems and is working towards preparing our electrical system for a whole new wave of renewable technologies. His research investigates the electrical system as a whole, with a focus on making it more efficient, reliable, and secure. This research is increasingly vital to the ongoing shifts in the electrical landscape—including deregulation and an energy mix that increasingly incorporates renewable and "smart" technologies. His research areas include optimizing energy systems, controlling wind-based energy production, and studying the benefits of distributed generation.
Dr. Rosehart received a number of early career awards, including recognition as one of Calgary’s Top 40 under 40 in 2007 by Calgary Inc. magazine and the Award for Early Achievement from the Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists and Geophysicists of Alberta. He holds a Professional Engineer designation and earned his PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Waterloo.
