Sigurd Bjarghov received the M.Sc. degree in electric power engineering from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim, Norway, in 2017, where he also defended his Ph.D. thesis titled "Designing grid tariffs and local electricity markets for peak demand reduction in distribution grids". His research interests include distributed energy resources, grid tariff design, energy communities, local flexibility markets and optimization.
Master of Science degree in Energy and Environmental Engineering, and a PhD from the Electricity Market and Energy System Planning group at NTNU Department of Electric Power Engineering (now Electric Energy).
Competence and research areas
My research focus lies on system- and grid-friendly integration of generation and flexibility in distribution grids. My main experience is grid tariff design and design of local electricity markets, local flexibility markets and load flow analysis, with the main angle on incentive design and local coordination mechanisms. My research has mainly been conducted using optimization methods such as linear, mixed-integer, stochastic and equilibrium programs.
