Dr. McIntyre is a native of Nelson County KY and received his B.S. and M. Eng degrees in 1997 and 2000, respectively, from the Dept. of Electrical and Computer Eng., Univ. of Louisville. He received a Ph. D. in 2006 from the Dept. of Electrical Eng., Clemson University. He was with General Electric as a senior electronic design engineer from 1998 to 2003 and then again from 2006 to 2007. He was the Kerr-Greulich Chair of Energy Systems at Western Kentucky Univ, Dept. of Eng from 2007 to 2011. In August of 2011, he joined the Electrical and Computer Eng. Dept. at the Univ. of Louisville, as an Assistant Professor. He teaches courses in power electronics, and control systems, and does research in the area of electrical energy systems.

Teaching and Research Interests

  • Teaching courses at the undergraduate and graduate level in the following areas: Electrical Energy Systems (Electronics, Power Electronics, and Electric Drive Systems), Controls (Linear Systems, and Nonlinear Systems), and Engineering Design.

  • Advanced Control Applications for Electrical Energy Systems, Electrical Machinery, Power Electronic Interfaces, Renewable Sources, and Smart Grid Applications.

  • Developing Novel Controllers and Observers for Systems with Multiple Types of Uncertainty.

  • Signal Estimation for Electrical Energy Systems.

Research Methodology

  • Theoretical Exploration: Conduct theoretical analysis of novel control/observation/estimation objectives using system models containing hard nonlinearites, constant and time-varying uncertainties, actuator saturation to develop novel schemes through lyapunov's methodes to prove our desired objective(s) are achived and all signals are bounded

  • Simulation Results:Use Model- and Circuit- Based Simulation tools to validate schemes.

  • System Implementation: Implement advanced schmes using real-time hardware and systems.
