Key words:

Distribution systems, Demand side management, Deregulation, Electric machinery, Instrumentation

Research description:

Primarily interested in electric distribution systems, analysis and planning, as well as distribution system loss calculation, control and reduction. Professor Poveda has developed a new method to calculate power distribution losses, based on digital profiles obtained from modern instruments, in order to do away with loss factor estimates. His research activities are aimed at designing distribution systems in Latin American utilities and optimizing their operation. He has also developed comprehensive demand- side management plans for Latin American and Caribbean countries and coordinated technical assistance for the implementation of DSM programs.
