Summary - more information can be found in my personal page:

I was born in Genoa, Italy, in March 1983. I received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Genoa, in February 2005 and November 2007, respectively and the European Ph.D. degree in power systems, from the same university in March 2011 with a dissertation related to wind and storage modeling and integrated control.

Since September 2012, I have been with the Technical University of Denmark, where I currently work as associate professor in distributed energy resources driven electric power systems. My research interests include power system integration studies, wind and solar data analysis, demand-side and electric vehicles management, and distributed energy resources modeling.


Research involvement: currently working in 3 EU and national projects (previously involved in other 13 research projects).

- ACES – Across Continents Electric Vehicle Services (Project leader). EUDP (Danish) funded project, which intends to holistically investigate technical and economic system benefits and impacts by large scale electric vehicles integration in Bornholm, augmented by real usage patterns, grid data and field testing for across continents replicability (Project scale: 1.4 M€; 04/2017 – 09/2020). Website: 

- ELECTRA - European Liaison on Electricity grid Committed Towards long-term Research Activities (WP vice-leader and tasks leader). European FP7 funded IRP project. The ELECTRA IRP will develop radically new control schemes for the real time operation of the 2030 power system and moreover will reinforce the EERA Joint Programme on Smart Grids activity and support the realization of the European SET Plan objectives. The EERA JP on Smart Grids intends to facilitate and encourage European coordination of member state research in the domain of Smart Grids. (Project scale: 13 M€; 12/2013 – 02/2018). Website:

- ELECTRA Top-up (Project technical leader). EUDP (Danish) funded project which extends DTU contribution in the FP7 ELECTRA project. (Project scale: 0.6 M€; 11/2014 – 10/2017).


PhD student supervision (ongoing):

Antonio Zecchino, “Electric vehicles in the Nordic countries: Control strategies for coordinated grid services”, Ph.D. in E.E. connected to a Nordic collaboration with NTNU, DTU, 12/2015 – 12/2018 (supervisors: M. Marinelli, C. Træholt, M. Korpås).

Michel Rezkalla, “Validation of decentralized and coordinated operation of frequency and voltage control systems in the control room,” Ph.D. in E.E. connected to ELECTRA FP7 and to ELECTRA Top-up project, DTU, 04/2015 – 03/2018 (supervisors: M. Marinelli, H. W. Bindner, K. Heussen).

Michael Pertl, “Observability and decision support for supervision of distributed power system control,” Ph.D. in E.E. connected to ELECTRA FP7 and to ELECTRA Top-up project, DTU, 12/2014 – 12/2017 (supervisors: H. W. Bindner, M. Marinelli, K. Heussen).

Sergejus Martinenas, “Enabling technologies for Smart Grid integration of Electric Vehicles,” Ph.D. in E.E. connected to Cotevos and to Nikola project, DTU, 08/2014 – 07/2017 (supervisors: C. Træholt, M. Marinelli, P. B. Andersen).
