Technology Director - Controls & Optimization
Justin John leads the Controls & Optimization team at GE’s Global Research Center. His team is responsible for developing advanced controls, optimization algorithms and physics-based models to improve the performance and security of GE assets. Prior to joining the GRC in 2014, he was a Technical Leader with the Controls team at GE Energy tasked with creating high fidelity power plant models which were used for design, controls and operability validation. Justin has spent a large portion of his career developing advanced controls and models for large combined cycle power plants. Justin is currently leveraging his controls and physics background together with AI to develop a new way to detect and neutralize cyber-attacks on critical infrastructure. He holds a M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology.
To fully understand how a machine should operate, you must know the underlying physics and controls driving it. Embedding this information into a continuously learning model called a Digital Twin provides us with the ability to understand how a machine should perform under any operating conditions. Digital Twins can be used to understand performance, degradation […]
