Vanfretti was also recently elected to the Modelica Association. The nonprofit organization “develops coordinated, open access standards and open source software in the area of cyber physical systems.”



To be considered for membership, individuals must contribute
to the goals of the association. Vanfretti was elected, he said, for the work
he has done to adopt Modelica language in power systems, and for organizing the
first American Modelica Conference in 2018.




Vanfretti is the director of the Analysis Laboratory for Synchrophasor and
Electrical energy Technology at Rensselaer
, also known as the
ALSETLab. The acronym is a tribute to Nikola Tesla, which becomes apparent when
read in reverse. Vanfretti and his team conduct research on cyber-physical
power system modeling and simulation.
