Pablo Velarde Rueda

Lecturer at the Universidad Tecnológica Equinoccial

P. Velarde received an engineering degree in electronics and control from the National Polytechnic School in Quito, Ecuador, in 2011, the M.Sc. degree in automatic, robotics, and telematics and the Ph.D. degree, both from the University of Sevilla, Spain, in 2014 and 2017, respectively. His thesis was entitled Stochastic Model Predictive Control for Robust Operation of Distribution Systems and was supervised by J.M. Maestre and C. Bordons. This work was focused on stochastic MPC applied to energy and water systems to guarantee a robust operation taking into account some vulnerabilities of the distributed systems.

Currently, he is working as a lecturer at the Sciences of Engineering and Industrial Faculty at Universidad UTE, in Quito, Ecuador. His research interests include model predictive control, stochastic MPC, energy management, cybersecurity, and other ones.
