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. Since 2009 he is Head of the Smart and Green Networks Research Group, 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. In 2016 he became Deputy Director of the IIT. He has large experience in applied research projects in the area of renewable generation and smart grids at European level, being principal investigator on many of these projects. He has been visiting researcher at INESC (Porto, Portugal) and Imperial College (London, UK). He is also a 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 two graduate courses (Electric Machines, The Challenges of Future Electricity 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 design of electrical machines.
