Dr. James Cale is an Associate Professor in the Systems Engineering Department at Colorado State University, with joint appointments in the Electrical and Computer Engineering and Mechanical Engineering Departments. His research focuses on the modeling, control and design optimization of energy sources and systems. His background and interests are in the areas of energy conversion, power-electronic drive systems, microgrids, finite-inertia power systems, computational and applied electromagnetics, design optimization, hardware-in-the-loop, and machine learning algorithms.
Prior to joining CSU, he led the Integrated Devices & Systems group at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colorado. Before that he worked in senior design engineering roles at Advanced Energy Industries and Orbital ATK (since acquired by Northrop Grumman). James earned his doctorate in electrical engineering (with honors) from Purdue University, where he was funded by an NSF IGERT fellowship. He earned his BSEE from Missouri University of Science & Technology (summa cum laude). He is a member of Tau Beta Pi and is a Senior Member of IEEE.
