Personal profile

Research interests

Federico received his engineering degree from the Technical 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 series resonant 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. Now, In Skoltech, he is leading the research in the microgrid lab. His main research areas are power electronics converters and microgrid control strategies.

Academic Reputation and Societal Impact

During 2019, Federico Ibanez was collaborating with a Spanish research institute, IKERLAN, in the field of supercapacitors. The results was an accepted paper in IEEE Transations on Energy Conversion. In addition he has been participating in two international conferences: IEEE Powertech in Milano, Italy and IEEE ICRERA, Brasov, Rumania. He had published two articles in top power electronic journals: one in IEEE Transactions of Power electronics and one in IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology. These activities show that the faculty is active in the international context and well positioned.

Federico’s expertise is on power electronics field, which is a key component in the new scenario of the power grid. His activities are performed most of the time in the lab, testing new technologies and methods for improving the energy transfer related with the grid, renewables and storage systems. This is very promising for industries.
