José Rueda Torres is an associate professor for Intelligent Electrical Power Grids at the Department of Electrical Sustainable Energy, TU Delft, The Netherlands. He received the Electrical Engineer Diploma (cum laude) from Escuela Politécnica Nacional, Quito, Ecuador in 2004. In 2009, he received the PhD degree in electrical engineering (mark: outstanding) from the National University of San Juan.
In July 2017, he was elected as chairman of the Working Group on Modern Heuristic Optimization (WGMHO) under the IEEE PES Analytic Methods in Power Systems (AMPS) Committee. He was vice-chair of the WGMHO between July 2014 and July 2017. Since August 2017, he is an associate editor of the Swarm and Evolutionary Computation Journal (Elsevier). Since October 2017, he is member of the Technical Committee on Power and Energy Systems of IFAC (International Federation of Automatic Control). He is a member of the Colegio de IngenierosEléctricos y Electrónicos de Pichincha (CIEEPI), member of the International Council on Large Electric Systems (CIGRE), and senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE).
His current research interests include power system reliability, modelling for stability studies (off-line and real-time digital simulation), optimal control design (local and wide-area), dynamic vulnerability assessment, system identification, probabilistic and artificial intelligent methods, HVDC and FACTs devices, and renewable energy technologies.
