Dr Luis Ochoa

Within the 'big area' of Flexible Low-Carbon Distribution Networks (medium and low voltage) the following are my main research interests:

- Integration of Distributed Low-Carbon Technologies (wind, photovoltaics, electric vehicles, storage, demand side management)

- Active Network Management (Smart Grids)

- Optimisation of Distribution Networks (operation and planning)

- Future Distribution Network Management Systems

- Real-Time Digital Simulator (RTDS) Hardware-in-the-Loop Studies
