Professional Preparation:
I am doing research and teaching courses on the modeling and simulation of nanoscale and power semiconductor devices, energy storage devices, magnetic materials, and on computational electromagnetics. I am particularly interested in the modeling of Li-air and Li-ion batteries, fuel cells, analysis of fluctuations, variability, and noise in electronic devices, quantum induced effects in nanoscale devices, redesign and optimization techniques, inverse problems, modeling and analysis of the magnetic properties of nanostructure systems, fast multipole methods, hysteresis, and thermal relaxation phenomena in nanostructures.



NEWS

Read Noise-Driven Phenomena in Hysteretic Systems, Springer (2014)

The book provides a general approach to nonlinear systems with hysteresis driven by noisy inputs, which leads to a unitary framework for the analysis of various stochastic aspects of hysteresis. It includes integral, differential and algebraic models that are used to describe scalar and vector hysteretic nonlinearities originating from various areas of science and engineering. The universality of the approach is also reflected by the diversity of the models used to portray the input noise, from the classical Gaussian white noise to its impulsive forms, often encountered in economics and biological systems, and pink noise, ubiquitous in multi-stable electronic systems.




GROUP & PROJECTS

Petru Andrei's Modeling and Simulation Group

Check out the page of The Modeling and Simulation Group by following this link.

RandFlux

Program for the simulation of nanoscale and power semiconductor devices, Li-ion and Li-air cells, fuel cells, analysis of random doping and oxide roughness induced effects, redesign and optimization, and solving inverse problems in semiconductor and energy storage devices.

HysterSoft

Program for the simulation of hysteresis phenomena in magnetic materials. It provides an user-friendly interface in which phenomenological models of hysteresis can be integrated. Among the hysteresis models implemented so far are: the Energetic model, the Hodgdon model, the Jiles-Atherton model, the Langevin model, the Preisach model (including discrete and analytical distributions), and Bouc-Wen, model.

AnyVSM

Software for the computation of the anisotropy function and critical curve of thin films by using Vibrating Sample Magnetometer (VSM) measurements.

FREEDM

The Future Renewable Electric Energy Delivery and Management (FREEDM) Systems Center is an NSF-ERC that aims at developing a revolutionary power grid based on power electronics, high bandwidth digital communication, and distributed control. It is the "internet for energy" and its goal is to transform the power industry in a similar way that the internet transformed the computer industry from the mainframe computer paradigm to the distributed computing we have today.
