CFPER welcomes visiting scholars

CFPER research community warmly welcomes Prof Haritza Camblong and A/Prof Roberto Fernandez who recently joined the research centre as visiting scholars to engage in collaborative research with our researchers.

Prof Haritza Camblong received the Electr. Eng. degree from the ENSIEG, Grenoble (France), in 1996, and the Ph.D. degree in Control Eng. from ENSAM in 2003.

After his graduation in 1996, he worked in Ikerlan research center for two years in mechatronics applications. Later, he worked with MSI engineering company for other two years. In 2001, he joined ESTIA Engineering School, where he created EneR-GEA research group.

Since November 2008, he is member of the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU). He is currently with the Systems Engineering and Control Department, and SI+E research group in Donostia-San Sebastián (Spain). His current research interests include AI-based energy management systems, production and demand prediction, PV power collective self-consumption and smart grids. He was included in the Stanford University's List of the Top 2% Scientists in the World in 2021.

His visiting professor term is for 6 months from September 2023 to February 2024. He is hosted by Prof Tek Tjing Lie for a collaborative project on development of a smart energy management system for self-consumption of PV electricity.

A/ Prof Roberto Fernandez received the Ph.D. degree in Industrial Engineering from University of La Rioja, Spain, in 2012. He is an Associate Professor at University of the Basque Country UPV/EHU. His research interests are focused on implementing data mining and machine learning techniques to solve and optimize real electrical problems and obtain knowledge previously unknown.

His visiting professor term is for 10 weeks from beginning of October to mid of December 2023. He is hosted by Dr Ramon Zamora for an ongoing project about machine learning application for sub synchronous oscillation detection and its damping optimization in a system with high penetration of renewable energy sources.
