Wilmington, North Carolina, United States
Robert Broadwater serves as a Product Manager at NISC and is a Professor Emeritus at Virginia Tech. He has been developing software for system analysis for 40 years. He designed the Distribution Engineering Workstation for the Electric Power Research Institute. He developed real-time, power plant simulations for Babcock & Wilcox and the Tennessee Valley Authority. He holds software patents related to electric power plant controls, and has experience working on nuclear, fossil, and hydro plants. In electric power system operations his software has been used to prevent power outages in St. Louis. He developed the Discrete Ascent Optimal Programming algorithm that solves large, constrained systems. He has developed a new approach to system analysis, Graph Trace Analysis, where system equations (i.e., Kirchoff Voltage and Current laws) are implemented dynamically.
