Renewable energy sources have brought more uncertainties to the operation of energy systems. Two challenges emerge. Firstly, we generally do not know the exact model and parameters of these energy resources. Secondly, robustly incorporating the uncertainties in operations is intractable using traditional control methods. Machine learning, especially reinforcement learning techniques, can potentially overcome these challenges by interacting with the environment to find good control strategies. Despite its potential, reinforcement learning does not readily apply to critical physical systems with hard constraints. My research focuses on closing these gaps to allow for the robust control of inverter-interfaced devices in energy systems.  I will analyze problems with...
