Smart Grids


The Smart Grid area does research and develops optimal control systems to manage hybridised, distributed microgrids. These systems allow the optimal combination of renewable energy and energy storage in batteries. We also work on the integration of thermal and electric grids.

We develop systems to manage demand flexibility featured by some domestic and industrial devices and processes. These systems allow the generation of ancillary services with no utility or comfort loss that can be marketed, enabling customers to participate actively in electricity markets.

To enhance the systems mentioned, we work on prosumer communities energy production and demand forecasting, as well as on battery models and digital twins.


Research Lines

  1. Research in advance control algorithms for the optimal planification of hybrid energy grids (sector couplling), distributed and with storage.
  2. Research in control algoriths for the flexibility demand, demand response and its participation in markets.
  3. Research in algorithms for the observability and reconfiguration of the electric grid (resilience).
  4. Research in tools for the management of energy communities.
  5. Research in advance and intelligent strategies for the management, operation and maintenance of  buildings based in AI/ML/DL for the generation of support decision making systems.

The proliferation of renewable energies and the electric charges that operates with continuous current originates a growing interest in electric grids that operates with continuous current. This is due to the higher efficiency, security, flexibility and feasability that grids have than those ones that operates with alternate current.
