Slobodan Pajic

Graduate Studies Online
CPE-Adjunct Teaching Professor

Slobodan Pajic received the Dipl. Eng. degree from School of Electrical Engineering, University of Belgrade, Serbia, with a major in power systems, and M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering with emphasis in power systems from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), Worcester, MA.

Dr. Pajic is a member of the GE Energy Consulting Systems Engineering team since 2012. Since joining he has been involved with transmission planning studies, transient stability analysis, large scale renewable integration studies, frequency response studies of Eastern and Western Interconnection, subsynchronous resonance (SSR) studies, and writing transient stability equipment models. He has extensive experience in the application of several power system analysis packages like GE PSLF and Siemens PSS/E.

Before joining GE, Dr. Pajic was employed by National Grid, USA, Waltham, MA, where he worked in the Transmission Planning Department for more than five years. Dr. Pajic performed detailed steady-state voltage and transient stability studies on the New England transmission system, contributed to numerous generator interconnection and system impact studies, and also represented National Grid at regional (ISO-NE) and national (NERC level) technical committees and working groups.

Dr. Pajic holds an appointment of an Adjunct Teaching Professor at WPI, where he has been involved in teaching and development of power system courses since 2006. His research and teaching interests are in the area of power system stability, power system computation and methods for the solution of large-scale systems, state estimation in power systems and optimal power flow. He has authored and co-authored 15 technical papers in IEEE Journals and Conference Proceedings. In 2015 Dr Pajic was a member of a GE team who received 2015 Annual Achievement Awards from the Utility Variable-Generation Integration Group (UVIG) for its leadership in improving the understanding of power system dynamics for the Western Electricity Coordinating Council under high variable generation conditions.
