Biography:

Ignacio Egido is Associate Professor at the Electrical Engineering Department of the ICAI School of Engineering, Comillas Pontifical University in Madrid. He has worked and lectured extensively on frequency and voltage control, especially on Automatic Generation Control (AGC), on power system modeling and stability, and on renewable energy sources integration in power systems, a field in which he has rendered consultancy services both for Electric Utilities and Transmission System Operators. He has published over 40 papers in national and international journals and conference proceedings. In 2005 he got the best Ph.D. Thesis in Engineering award from Comillas Pontifical University for his dissertation “Regulator Design for Automatic Generation Control (AGC)”. He teaches at undergraduate level courses on Electrical Instrumentation and Measurement, and Electric Drives, and at graduate level a course on Power System Operation and Control.


Areas of interest:

Load-frequency control and voltage control. System modeling and control. Power system stability.
