Lina Bertling Tjernberg
Lina Bertling Tjernberg (Docent, Ph.D., MSc.) is Professor in Power Grid Technology at KTH – The Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. She is Director of the Energy Platform at KTH which coordinates and supports multidisciplinary research initiatives within the energy areas. She is the coordinator of life long learning at the EECS school at KTH.
Her research and teaching are focused on applying mathematics (e.g. statistics, optimization, life cycle assessment) for predicting and modelling reliability, impact of maintenance efforts for various electric power system applications. The research interests include future technologies (e.g. micro grids, battery storage, wind/solar), designs and operation of the power grid including electrified transportations. Currently projects are performed within the following research areas:
- Asset management . Further developing the Reliability Centered Asset Management (RCAM) methodology. The project is listed on IVAs 100 list in 2019 . During 2021 a project is started with application for transmission power grid using machine learning for predictive maintenance within the SweGRIDS research center.
- Reliability and Life Cycle Cost Evaluations and developments of local energy systems. Including a joint Ph.D. student project with Addis Ababa University and a pre-study with Gävle Port.
The overall objectives of the research are to; contributing to a secure and high level of reliability in electricity supply, and efficient use of energy resources, and reduction of the use of fossil fuels. The objectives are key solutions for the sustainable development of society.
She is actively involved as an advisor and expert in various professional organizations and is a frequent keynote speaker (being a distinguished lecturer of IEEE Power & Energy Society). Currently selected appointments includes Board member of the Swedish Electromobility Center (SEC), Member of the Program Committee of the World Energy Council, Vice-chair of the Board of Parliament and researchers, Member of the National Strategic Council for Wind Power, member of the nomination committee of the Polhelmspriset, and Chairman of SEK Svensk Elstandard. She is the national expert in the ISGAN Academy of Smart Grid, and the IEEE PES ISGT Europe Steering Group.
Previous appointments include Steering committee IVA Energy Crossroads, Member of the Swedish Government Coordination Council for smart grid, Program Manager within the Centre of Excellence on Electric Engineering (EKC) at KTH.
She is the author of 100+ scientific papers in journals and international conferences including the book on Infrastructure Asset Management with Power System Applications, CRC Taylor & Francis, April 2018. She is a senior member of the IEEE, CIRED, and Cigre, past chairman of the IEEE Reliability Risk and Probability Applications (RRPA) Subcommittee, and has severed as an external reviewer for the EU commission.
