Biography:

Lukas Sigrist received his M.Sc. degree in electrical and electronics engineering from École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in 2007 and his Ph.D. degree from Universidad Pontificia Comillas in 2010. He is a researcher at Instituto de Investigación Tecnológica (IIT) of Universidad Pontificia Comillas, Madrid, and the deputy director of Economic Affairs. His areas of interest are modeling, analysis, simulation, and identification of electric power systems. He has been involved in a large number of research projects related to power-system stability and power-system operation particularly in the area of island power systems. He has published over 90 papers in specialized journals and conferences. His work on designing UFLS schemes of isolated power systems has received the 12th European Talent Award for Innovative Energy Systems. Lukas is the treasurer of the Spanish IEEE PES chapter and has been associated editor of the IET GTD. He was a member of the CIRED working group 2018-3 on "Technical requirements for microgrids operating in both islanded and interconnected mode".


Areas of interest:

Modeling, analysis and control of electric power systems. Energy Systems Models.
