Dr. Glenn Y. Masada earned his Sc.D. in mechanical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1980. He joined the faculty of The University of Texas at Austin the same year. He is affiliated with the Dynamic Systems and Control program.

Dr. Masada researches the design, control and optimization of energy conversion systems. He develops mathematical models and control strategies for electric-generating power plant boilers, hybrid ground-source heat pump systems, isolated microgrids, and other thermal systems to increase their thermal efficiency, reliability and transient performance.

Research interests:

  • System dynamics
  • Automatic control
  • Energy conversion engineering
  • Mechatronics
