Smart Grids


The Smart Grid area works on research, development and transfer of optimal planning systems for the operation of electricity grids equipped with renewable generation, storage and controllable loads, as in the case of electric vehicle charging. The integration of thermal and electrical grids to optimise their joint management is another of the points on which it focuses.

It also works on the characterisation, prediction and management of demand flexibility in residential and industrial areas with the aim of providing auxiliary services to the distribution grid and participating in demand-side markets.

It also addresses the modelling of the distribution grid, the design of algorithms for its optimal operation, the modelling of the effect of electric vehicle charging, the detection of congestions and overvoltages, the use of flexibility to solve these types of problems and the detection of non-technical losses.

These activities are complemented by the development of algorithms for the prediction of energy demand, renewable energy generation and the resulting price in some electricity markets.

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.
