Ricardo Faia with an outstanding PhD Thesis

Ricardo Faia concluded his Ph.D. in Informatics Engineering at the University of Salamanca with a maximum classification. The thesis title is “Decision Support for Participation in Electric Markets considering the Transaction of Services and Electricity at the Local Level”.

His Ph.D work contributes to the advancement of the state-of-the-art with models that enable the active involvement of the end-users in electricity markets in order to become key participants in the management of power and energy systems. Aggregators are expected to play an essential role in these models, making the connection between the residential end-users, electricity markets, and network operators. Thus, this work focuses on providing solutions to a wide variety of challenges faced by aggregators. The main results of this work include the developed models to enable consumers and prosumers participation in electricity markets and power and energy systems management. The proposed decision support models consider demand-side management applications, local electricity market models, electricity portfolio management, and local ancillary services.
