My research consists of leveraging the large diversity of measurement data generated by advanced electricity sensors (e.g., smart meters) for better operation and planning of distribution grids down to the low-voltage level. Data preparation, big data visualization, pseudo-measurement synthesis, state estimation, load disaggregation, and short-term forecasting are among the investigated topics. Based on real-world data, the research intends to bridge some of the gaps that currently prevent power utilities and their customers from using the full potential of actual measurement data in distribution grids.
