Facultad de Ingeniería

Universidad de Talca

Marco Rivera received his B.Sc. in Electronics Engineering and M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from the Universidad de Concepción, Chile in 2007 and 2008, respectively. He earned the degree of Doctor of Electronics Engineering at the Department of Electronics Engineering, Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María, in Valparaíso, Chile, in 2011 with a scholarship from the Chilean Research Fund CONICYT. During 2011 and 2012, he was working as a postdoc researcher and part-time professor at the Department of Electronics Engineering, Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María, in Valparaíso, Chile. His research interests include matrix converters, predictive and digital controls for high-power drives, four-leg converters, and the development of high performance control platforms based on Field-Programmable Gate Arrays. Currently, he is an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Universidad de Talca, Curicó, Chile. In 2013 Prof. Rivera was awarded with the Premio Tesis de Doctorado Academia Chilena de Ciencias 2012, which was awarded to the best PhD Thesis developed in 2011 for national and foreign students in any exact or natural sciences program that is a member of the Academia Chilena de Ciencias, Chile.

In 2015, Prof. Rivera has been awarded with the Premio AIE IEEE Ingeniero Sobresaliente 2015 (Outstanding Professor of 2015), award given by the Association of the Electrical and Electronics Industry and the International Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers – Chile Section.

New Configuration of Power Converters for Grid Interconnection Systems

According the National Energy Strategy proposed by the Chilean Goverment in March 2012, the growing technological development in Chile has lead to the search of energy efficiency and the penetration of renewable energies and other generation systems to the electricity supply network. In this context, power converters play an important role for the management of electric energy, providing the interconnection between the generation and the distribution systems. This project will investigate new multi-modular power conversion architectures within such an integrated power interconnection system. Such architectures allow the grid interconnection of different types of generation and loads enabling a cost effective, clean and sustainable electrical transmission and distribution structure for Chile (which could also be extensible to the rest of South-America and even Europe) with improved power quality. Specific objetives of the proposal are small and lightweight multi-modular power converter structures to enable grid embedded generators. The development of advanced modulation and control algorithms are needed for conditioning in multi-parameter systems. The required control algorithms will be base on a study of the proposed embedded architectures and their behaviour for different grid conditions such as low voltage, high harmonic content, voltage distortion, and frequency variations. Functionality of proposed converter architectures will be verified through hardware validation and testing. A smart electrical system as such should clearly address the two most importan factors for secure, cost-effective energy: improving efficiency and maintaining supply.
