Scientific advisor: Prof. Aldo Bischi
Ph.D. thesis: “Operation Optimization of Integrated Multi-Energy Systems.”
Alvaro completed as a distinguished student his B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering, specializing in energy harvesting at the Universidad del Norte, Colombia, in 2015. In 2017 he received with honors his M.Sc. degree in Power Engineering at the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech), Russia. His M.Sc. thesis “Dynamic multi-site Combined Heat and Power Economic Dispatch (CHPED) under transmission constraints” was awarded by the Interdisciplinary Contribution Merit Award.
Alvaro currently is a Ph.D. student at Skoltech in the working group of the Prof. Aldo Bischi. In particular, he is involved in the research connected with the integration of Multi-Energy Systems, i.e., Combined Cooling, Heat and Power Systems. His research will be focused on the optimization of the operation of such systems. The research will provide a mathematical model for the integration and characterization of the generation units, energy networks, and storage. Furthermore, Alvaro will assist with the teaching of the graduate course Energy Systems (Physics) and Technology, and the course Introduction to Power Systems.
