Biography

Dr. Annakkage has more than 30 years of experience in teaching, research and consulting. His main research strength is in the area of power system control and stability. He received the B.Sc. (Eng.) degree from University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka, in 1982 and the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST), Manchester, U.K., in 1984 and 1987, respectively. He has supervised more than 20 PhD students and several MSc students at the University of Manitoba (Canada) and the University of Auckland(New Zealand). He has served on several IEEE and CIGRE working groups. He was an editor of IEEE Transactions on Power Systems from 2009 –2012 and the Head of Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Manitoba from 2008 -2012, and 2020-2021.
