Overall, the research is intended to be exploratory and methodological. The Chair aims at complementing and integrating the different approaches to complex system analysis (from abstract network theory to detailed simulation, from analytical to empirical modeling, from probabilistic to non-probabilistic uncertainty analysis) in order to be able to effectively respond at the specific needs of the different analyses that can be performed (design, operation, maintenance, protection, etc.) on the different objects of analysis (components, plants, networks, etc.).

Currently, there are two main research axes:

Axis 1: Characterization, representation, modeling and prediction of the aging and failure behavior of systems, structures and components

Axis 2: Modeling and optimization of electrical network systems
