Federico Martin Ibanez

Senior Research Scientist
Center for Energy Systems

Professor: Janusz Bialek

Federico received his engineering degree from the Technologic National University (UTN-FRBA) at Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2008. He has 9 years of experience in electronic designs, mostly in lab activities. He worked as a prototype designer for electronic circuits related to gas sensors, impedance meters and electrolyzers in the National Commission of Atomic Energy (CNEA-CAC), Buenos Aires between 2007 and 2008. In 2008, he moved to San Sebastián, Spain. There, he started his PhD studies in power electronics at CEIT, a research center of the University of Navarra. He has participated in several European and national and regional projects related to power electronics. In those projects, he designed, developed and tested several DC/DC and DC/AC converters for energy storage and electric vehicle applications in the range between 1 and 100 kW. In 2012, he completed his PhD thesis which proposes a step-up mode control method for bidirectional resonant series converters. By using the proposed method, this kind of converters can be used in energy storage applications. The research resulted in a series of publications in peer-reviewed journals, mostly as a first author.

Power electronics architecture and control strategies.

Microgrid sizing strategies.
