The researcher will participate in research projects related to the electricity sector. The main line of the working group is the modeling of the distribution electricity networks and the analysis of the impact of distributed energy resources (e.g. electric vehicle, distributed generation, storage, demand response, etc.). These works are carried out in collaboration with renowned international institutions. Thanks to the work done, the researcher will acquire and put into practice knowledge related to the electricity sector and distribution networks. To carry out this work, models are used to simulate the planning and operation of these networks.
