Biography

Marcelo Elizondo joined Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in October 2009. He has experience and interest in multidisciplinary research related to power system engineering. His Ph.D. research focused on the economic valuation of fast power system controllers in an electricity market environment. Dr. Elizondo’s research included modeling linear and nonlinear power system controllers, preventive generation rescheduling to enhance transient stability, and the relationship between power system security and reliability. Dr. Elizondo was an industry consultant for two years during which he managed projects on wind generation impact on power system stability, and was involved in the technical design of a new ancillary services market.
