Dr. Sisworahardjo received his bachelor, master, and doctorate degrees all in Electrical Engineering.
Before moving to the United States to pursue his graduate degrees, he was a Junior
Researcher and worked in various research projects funded by the state electricity
company of Indonesia in the field of load forecasting, application of geographic information
systems (GIS) for power distribution systems, the effect of electric and magnetic
fields from HV/EHV transmission lines to human health, and power system expansion
planning by using Wien Automatic System Planning (WASP) package. He is also an instructor
for the energy conservation program for commercial buildings and hotels and numerical
analysis and computer applications in power systems for electrical engineers.
During graduate studies at Illinois Institute of Technology and the University of Alabama, he was involved in research on computer modeling and simulation of intelligent agents for power electronics building blocks (PEBB), short-term generating unit asset valuation, and application of modern optimization techniques in power systems.
Prior to his appointment as Assistant Professor at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, he was a Research Associate and Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of South Alabama. He conducted a study of reliability of low power direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC) system, model development of proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC), dynamic characteristics evaluation of PEMFC operation, and dynamic characteristics evaluation of low power portable fuel cell. He also taught various undergraduate and graduate courses at the University of South Alabama.
His research interest including smart grid, distributed generation, renewable/alternative energy, power systems operation, optimization, simulation, and planning.
