Lecturer in Electrical
Jan 2009 – Dec 2011: Post Doctoral Research Associate
From October 2009 to December 2011, Dr González-Longatt is part of the project “Real-time Frequency-based Corrective Control of Future Networks – FreCon”, (EPRSC Project EP/G055211/1). Its aim is creates a wide-area intelligent system, that empowers the future power grids by providing critical and extensive synchronised information in real-time, assessing system vulnerability quickly, and performing timely corrective control actions based on system-wide considerations. Dr González-Longatt is responsible for the design of a new closed-loop coordinated corrective control scheme, which can be applied to eliminating frequency instabilities, cascading outages and catastrophic blackouts in networks.
From to January 2009 to October 2009, Dr González-Longatt was part of the large-scale Integrated Project co-founded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme (FP7) in the energy area called ADDRESS. "Development of Interactive Distribution Energy Networks". Research interests related to both projects include: - Investigate the potential and the requirements of active demand from the consumers’ and the electricity retailers’ perspectives. - Development of the emerging demand aggregation business whose role will be to gather, coordinate and offer the flexibilities of consumers to the grid and electricity markets. - Development of a number of relevant scenarios representatives of the diversity of the possible evolutions of the European electricity industry and its consumers.
2006 – Jan 2010: Associate Professor in Power Systems
