Andreas Procopiou received his BEng degree from Brunel University London, in 2011 and the MSc and PhD degree from the University of Manchester, in 2012 and 2017, respectively. During his PhD studies at The University of Manchester, UK he was part of the industrial research project “Active Management of Low Voltage Networks” jointly funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and Électricité de France (EDF) R&D. He worked also a visiting research engineer at the department of Measurements and Information Systems of Electrical Networks (MIRE) at EDF R&D in Paris (the largest R&D centre in Europe) where he developed and investigated active network management techniques to solve voltage and thermal issues in real French and UK low voltage distribution networks. He has a strong experience in network integration and control of distributed energy resources and future low-carbon distribution networks and has extensive knowledge and experience with key programming and power simulation tools (e.g., Matlab, VBA, OpenDSS). He has authored 8 technical reports for EDF R&D, 5 peer-reviewed conference and journal papers (in top-class international IEEE conferences and IEEE Transactions).
