Anna Palau Mayo

Catalonia Institute for Energy Research (IREC)

Anna Palau obtained her Industrial Engineering Degree from the School of Industrial Engineering of Barcelona (ETSEIB) at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC) in 2016. She developed her Degree thesis at CITCEA-UPC Technology Center on sizing a battery system within a photovoltaic installation to reduce the costs due to prediction errors. In 2017, she obtained a European Master in Renewable Energy Facilities and Grid Integration from University of Oldenburg (Germany) and University of Zaragoza (Spain). In June of 2017, she joined IREC in the Power Systems group to research on resilient distribution systems through the integration of distributed energy resources.


The requirement of system decarbonisation fixed by the EU 2050 plan is leading to an increased establishment of renewable energy sources. Additionally, the disruption of power electronics and ICT technologies has played a... [ view full abstract ]
