RESEARCH INTERESTS

Coloured Petri Nets and Fault Diagnosis

The PNs provide the ability to apply the techniques of merging places, which allow reducing the size of the resulting models. This synthesis capacity in the resulting models is further accented with the Coloured Petri Nets (CPNs). These CPNs are designed for the general purpose of being a graphical structure based on PNs useful to specify, design, and analyze the concurrent systems that contribute to the possibility of applying merging techniques for the representation of different concurrent subprocesses that coexist in the same PN graphical structure. The CPNs allow assigning the functions in their arcs with lineal transformations capacity, which allows great functional variability to the final model.
All these characteristics of synchronism and concurrency of the PNs, in addition to the merging techniques of the CPNs, provide the necessary robustness for the application of fault diagnosis in any complex system. Among the most recent advances using Coloured Petri Nets for Fault Diagnosis.

Automation and Control Systems

Petri nets, modeling and simulation of complex systems, artificial intelligence, modeling and control of discrete and continuous systems.

Energy Sustainability

In a globalized world, economic growth is an aspect that influences the energy requirements of different countries, some of them with a stronger productive force and a higher population density, such as China, United States, Japan and Germany. Economic powers are those that are at the peak of consumption. Energy has become in a strategic product and is essential to economic growth of developing countries.

In Colombia, energy consumption is linked to climate change, specifically phenomena such as "El Niño" and "La Niña" can affect procurement and generation of the national power grid. In the same way, the country's GDP and the economic situation have an impact on energy demand. According to Unidad de Planeación Minero Energética (UPME) projections, for the period 2010 to 2020 there will be an average growth rate of 3.4% and for the period 2020 to 2030 will be of 3.1% . With environmental problems associated with energy generation from conventional sources and depletion of resources, the country should follow the global trend of using alternative sources of energy generation, because energy demand is increasing and available resources are being consumed continuously, especially from fossil sources. To a greater extent, solar energy is one of the most used options and it has the fastest growing in its implementation
