GISMo Laboratory
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory

PhD/MASc, Mechanical Engineering, University of Victoria
BS, Building Sciences, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Dr. David Chassin leads GISMo R&D on modeling, simulation and analysis of power systems. He managed the development of the DOE’s GridLAB-D simulation system, which is widely used to study smart-grid and renewable energy technology integration in electricity distribution systems. He led the design of the transactive control systems for DOE’s smart-grid demonstrations, and serves on the North American Electricity Reliability Corporation Load Modeling Task Force.

Dr. Chassin can speak and advise on the following technical fields:

  • Demand response and building system performance.
  • Agent-based energy system modeling and simulation.
  • Data-driven distributed energy resource integration.
  • Flexible load-to-grid services.
