PhD in Electrical Engineering

Research Interests:

Dr. Steurer received a Master of Electrical Engineering in 1995 from the Vienna University of Technology, Austria, and his Ph.D. in Technical Science in 2001 from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich, Switzerland, Since then, Dr. Steurer is a senior researcher at the Florida State University (FSU) Center for Advanced Power Systems (CAPS) where he leads the power systems group focusing primarily on hardware-in-the-loop real-time simulation and modeling of integrated power systems for all-electric ships and future terrestrial power systems. Dr. Steurer has authored and co-authored more than 50 technical papers in various areas of electric power apparatus and their system interactions. He is a member of the IEEE and CIGRE and contributes to the CIGRE working group A3.23 “Application and feasibility of fault current limiters in power systems” and the IEEE working groups I8 “Power Electronic Building Blocks”, and P1709 “Recommended Practice for 1 to 35 kV Medium Voltage DC Power Systems on Ships”.
