Dr. Javier Roldán
Javier Roldan Pérez received a B.S. degree in industrial engineering, a M.S. degree in electronics and control systems, a M.S. degree in system modeling, and a Ph.D. degree in power electronics, all from Comillas Pontifical University, Madrid, in 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2015, respectively. From 2010 to 2015, he was with the Institute for Research in Technology (IIT), Comillas University, working in projects related to the application of power electronics to the electrical grid and developing his thesis. In 2014, he was a visiting Ph.D. student at the Department of Energy Technology, Aalborg University, Denmark, where he research about power quality and control systems for microgrids. From 2015 to 2016 he was with the Electric and Control Systems Department at Norvento Energía Distribuida, where he worked in power conversion systems for medium-power wind turbines. In September 2016 he joined the Electrical Systems Unit at IMDEA Energy Institute, where his research topics are the integration of renewable energies, microgrids, and power electronics applications. His research interests include microgrids modeling and control, design and control of VSC-based technologies like dynamic voltage restorers, static compensators, active power filters, and renewable energy sources like wind and solar.
