Research Trajectory

I’m driven by applying automation (modeling, simulation, automatic control and artificial intelligence) to optimize concentrating solar thermal processes with the aim of reducing costs, improving efficiency and minimizing the use of energy and water.

In my Ph.D., I worked on the dynamic modeling of two-phase flow evaporators for direct steam generation in parabolic trough solar thermal power plants. In the scope of several international projects, I worked on the modeling and control of a heat recovery system in an innovative design for the coupling of a biogas turbine with a solar power plant. I’ve been also involved in the recovery of wasted thermal energy from a solar power plant to produce water in a distillation facility to reduce the fresh water consumption. I worked in several national projects, modeling parabolic trough collectors, heat exchangers, thermal energy storage systems, and coupling a solar tower power plant, a gas turbine and a solar distillation facility.

Currently, I’m motivated by applying artificial intelligence in solar thermal power plants, since they exhibit a low degree of intelligence and autonomy in general, with new ideas like a software tool for electricity mix optimization based on artificial intelligence, and a smart solar tracker based on machine learning and computer vision.
