Dr. Diego Rivelino Espinoza Trejo was born in Ciudad Valles, San Luis Potosí, México in 1978. He received the B.S. degree in electronics engineering (1996-2001) and the M.Sc. (2001-2004) and Ph.D. (2004-2008) degrees in electrical engineering from the Universidad Autónoma de San Luis Potosí, San Luis Potosí, México.
He has made research stays in the Department of Electrical Engineering, Louisiana State University, United States (summer 2007), in the Faculty of Engineering, Universidad Nacional de Río Cuarto, Córdoba, Argentina (summer 2010 and 2012), in the Faculty of Engineering, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (August 2015 - July 2016), and in the Department of Electrical Engineering, Université du Québec en Outaouais, Canada (summer 2018 and 2019).
His main research interest is the study of Grid-Connected Photovoltaic Systems from the perspective of control theory, optimization and power electronics. The main objective is to integrate, in an efficient and safety way, PV systems into a microgrid. His most recent contributions have focused on photovoltaic maximum power point trackers and model-based techniques for fault diagnosis in power electronics converters used in PV systems.
