Dr. Luis Olmos was born in Madrid, Spain, in 1976. He belongs to the research staff of the Instituto de Investigación Tecnológica, Pontificia Comillas University. He got the degree in Industrial Engineering from the Pontificia Comillas University in 2000. In 2006, he got the PhD. in Industrial Engineering from the Pontificia Comillas University. The title of his PhD. disertation was “A regulatory framework for the transmission network in regional electricity markets”. He has extensively reasearched the regulation of energy markets and the economics of power systems, with a special focus on the regulation of the transmission of electricity and all the problems that are related to it: allocation of sunk costs, design of tariffs, management of congestion and plannification of the expansion of the grid.rnrnThroughout his professional career, he has been involved in a large number of reserach and consultancy projects commissioned by public entities and companies from several countries. As a consultant for the Directorate General for Energy and Transport of the European Commission, he has been intensively involved in the design and implementation of the Internal Electricity Market of the European Union. He has also got experience in the identification and control of industrial systems of any type. Dr. Olmos has published contributed to several books and published more than 10 papers on these topics in scientific journals and international conferences.

Areas of interest:

Regulation of the energy sector. Transmission of electricity. Power economics. System identification.
