Francisco Martín was born in Madrid in 1990. In September 2011, he joined the Institute for Research in Technology (IIT) as an invited student in the Intelligent Systems Area (ASI). He obtained an Industrial Engineering degree (major in Electrical) in June 2013, a Master's degree in Research in Engineering Systems Modeling in June 2015, and his Ph.D. in July 2017, all of them from Universidad Pontificia Comillas. During the Ph.D. student period, he made a 3-month stay in the Smart Polygeneration Microgrid (SPM) of the University of Genoa in Savona, where he was able to test his models. He has published several works about the electrical sector in high impact factor magazines and conferences, some at system level and also some focused on the consumers and deployment of distributed energy resources. He has also participated in technical studies and in book chapters together with other IIT researchers using his model, SPLODER. He is currently working as a Researcher at the Institute for Research in Technology (IIT) where he works on projects for companies from the electricity sector (Endesa, Iberdrola, Gas Natural…). As a teacher, he has supervised more than 15 final projects of degree, master or final degree projects and given classes of digital electronic systems at ICAI.
Areas of interest:
My research focuses on demand flexibility, energy usages, optimization models, and specifically on aggregation and microgrids issues. I am developing studies in electrical systems and the impact of different energy resources. I am also working with digital electronics systems for the control and monitoring of residential consumption.
