Steve Glover

Manager of the Advanced Pulsed Power Systems

Sandia National Laboratories

Steven F. Glover He received the Associate of Technology degree in electronics from Linn Technical College, Linn, Missouri, in 1990, the B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from the Missouri University of Science and Technology (Summa Cum Laude), Rolla, Missouri, in 1995 and 1997, and the Ph.D. degree with research on modeling and stability analysis of power electronics based systems from Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, in 2003. 

He was a Research Engineer for P.C. Krause and Associates from 1996 to 2001 where he designed and analyzed power electronics based systems. From 1997 to 1998 he served as an Associate Research Engineer with the University of Missouri-Rolla and then as a Research Engineer at Purdue University until 2003, pursuing interests in power electronics based systems. In May 2003 he joined Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque, NM, where he performed research in advanced power systems and components.  In 2012 he became Manager of the Advanced Pulsed Power Systems Department which evolved into the Electrical Sciences and Experiments Department.

Present department research thrusts include: 1) Networked microgrids and power electronic systems with a focus on development of advanced design, analysis, and control techniques utilizing Informatics theory for adaptive behavior, Hamiltonian based nonlinear distributed controls, Communication Theory, and experimental validation in the secure, scalable networked microgrid test bed.  2) High voltage sciences with a focus on the physics of electrical breakdown.  3) Experimental electromagnetics with a focus in coupling, shielding, susceptibility.
