Definition and Objectives


Within the broad field of research in Electrical Engineering, the Electric Power Systems Research Group (GISEL) focuses its activity mainly on three lines of research:

  •     Integration of Renewable Energies in the Electrical System, FACTS and HVDC
  •     Microgrids, Electric Vehicle and SmartGrids
  •     Protection of Electrical Systems

The global objective of the research group is to contribute to the development of research within its areas of activity, through the imbrication in the local productive environment that has a significant presence of companies in the electrical energy sector. To this end, it has been working for more than a decade developing and transferring technology to surrounding companies.
Additionally, the group's objective is to contribute to the training of new researchers through their participation in the Research Master "Integration of Renewable Energies in the Electric System" and in the Interuniversity Doctorate program in "Electric Power Systems".
Both objectives are intended to contribute to solving the challenges that society faces in relation to achieving clean, cheap energy for all, through collaboration with other research entities, and aligning the group's objectives with the objectives. of the RIS3 ('Research and Innovation Smart Specialization Strategy') strategy for smart specialization approved by the European Union.
