Dante Recalde received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from the National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan, in 2010 and 2012, respectively. His master thesis focused on synergistic control of hydrogen storage systems and offshore wind farms for grid operation.
In 2012 he joined the Laboratory for Clean Energy Research at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore as a PhD student. He worked as a research associate in the energy management group during the phase I of TUMCREATE. For his thesis, he proposed a flexible charge scheduling algorithm for electric vehicles in distribution grids. In July 2016 he took up the position as a research fellow in the Electrification Suite & Test Lab research area.
During the first phase of TUMCREATE, Dante Recalde studied different charging strategies for private electric vehicles and proposed charging algorithms for provision of ancillary services. He also studied the impact of different charging strategies in the distribution grid. For Phase II, his research will focus on optimization of the power system operation considering an electrified transportation system and high penetration of renewable energy sources. Algorithms will be proposed to minimize the effect of charging operation while ensuring efficient and reliable operation of both the distribution and transmission networks.
