ELEC0018-1 Energy Markets

Lecture slides. Organization of European day-ahead electricity markets and the algorithm used for solving the market coupling problem.


Since October 2016, I am assistant professor in smart-microgrids within the Montefiore research unit. I am doing my best to apply optimization and machine learning to practical applications in electrical power systems. Before turning to microgrids, I worked on active network management in distribution systems (GREDOR Project), I lead for some time the development of Euphemia, the algorithm that is used by European Power Exchanges for clearing the day-ahead electricity market, and I developed some algorithms for the optimal scheduling of EDF's power plants. I am currently participating to the MeryGrid project that aims at building a pilot community microgrid with and advanced energy storage system and an advanced energy management system.

I am also a contributor and big enthusiast for the ride sharing application that we are developing for the university.


I have one PhD student, Ioannis Boukas (participation of microgrids to markets), and I am working in close collaboration with the team of Pr. Damien Ernst.

Master theses

I am proposing several master thesis topics related to microgrids / optimization / AI / ride sharing. They can be consulted on the website of my faculty.
