Professional
Christopher S. Edrington received his BS in Engineering from Arkansas State University in 1999 and his MS and PhD in Electrical Engineering from the Missouri University of Science and Technology in 2001 and 2004, respectively, where he was both a DoE GAANN Fellow for his MS focusing on control systems and NSF IGERT Fellow for his PhD focusing on variable speed drive systems. He was previously a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering with the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering and was the lead for the Energy Conversion and Integration thrust for the Florida State University-Center for Advanced Power Systems. His research interests include modeling, simulation, and control of electromechanical drive systems; applied power electronics; distributed control; integration of renewable energy, storage, and pulse power loads. Dr. Edrington has published over 160 papers (including 2 IEEE Prize Awards), has graduated 23 MS students and 16 PhD students (with 5 in process) and has 6 patents (in real-time stability and complexity metrics) with an additional 1 patent pending (for the design of a linear actuator for automotive applications).
