Biography:

Pablo Frías is an associate professor of Electrical Engineering at the Engineering School of Universidad Pontificia Comillas. He obtained the Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering from the Universidad Pontificia Comillas in 2008, and the Industrial Engineering degree in Electrical major in the School of Engineering of the ICAI in 2001. He joined the Institute for Research in Technology (IIT) in June 2001. In the period 2009-2016 he was head of the Research Group "Smart and Sustainable Grids", focused on the analysis of the technical & economic and regulatory implications of the integration of renewable generation on power systems, and the implementation of smart grids. He has been Deputy Director of the IIT in the period march 2016 to september 2018, and currently he is Vice-Dean at ICAI. He has a large experience in international applied research projects in the area of renewable generation and smart grids at European level, being principal investigator on many of these projects. Currently he is coordinator of the Annex 8 at the International Smart Grid Action Network (ISGAN). He has been visiting researcher at INESC (Porto, Portugal) and Imperial College (London, UK). He is also assistant professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering ICAI, where since 2008 he is the Head of the Electric Machines Laboratory. He is also responsible for three graduate courses (Electric Machines, The Challenges of Future Electricity Systems and ICT & BigData in Power Systems) and two post-graduate (Control Specialist Power Systems, Masters in Electricity Generation). His research interests are the integration of renewable generation in electrical systems, the penetration of distributed resources in electricity networks (distributed generation, load management, storage systems and electric vehicles), and the advanced design of electrical machines. He has the accreditations of two six-year research in Engineering and Architecture (Communication Engineering, Computing and Electronics), for the periods 2005-10 and 2011-16, as well as the ACAP Certifications of PhD assistant professor. Since January 2018 he is director of the Observatory of Electric Vehicles and Sustainable Mobility in Comillas.
