Konstantinos was born in Athens, Greece in 1991. He received his diploma degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering in February 2015 from National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). His thesis covered an extended research in Decentralised Voltage Regulation for Radial MV Networks with high presence of Distributed Generation. In 2015 he accomplished his military service. From January to June 2016, he was involved in two SCADA projects of the Greek DSO (HEDNO) as representative engineer of Efacec (in collaboration with ENERTA S.A.). Konstantinos was responsible for the database configuration of SCADA and DMS servers, providing technical support on DMS applications and participating in commissioning of several HV/MV substations. Currently he is conducting his PhD research on Efacec in collaboration with Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto (FEUP), as member of INCITE network. Among his main research interests are Integration of Distributed Energy Resources, Power System Analysis, Voltage Regulation and Muti-agent Based Systems. Konstantinos with his competence on the above fields will contribute on the implementation of Advanced Functionalities for the Smart Secondary Substation.
