Dr. Jose A. Carrasco (EMXYS / Elche, Spain)

Stability criteria on Power Bus Architectures Used in Space Platforms and Electromagnetic Interference Implications

Monday, 19th June, 10:15–11:00, Room A

Jose A. Carrasco was born in Alicante, Spain, in March 1967. After obtaining a M.Sc. in Physics in 1990, he worked for a period of two years as power electronics researcher for the European Space Agency in the European Space Research and Technology Center, Noorwijk, the Netherlands. In September 1993, he joins the Laboratory of Industrial Electronics of the Universidad de Valencia, in Spain, where he obtains his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering in 1996 for a work on high efficiency and reliable power conversion techniques for space applications. In 1999 he joins the Universidad Miguel Hernandez where at present lectures on Electrical Engineering. In 2005 he co-founded the company EMXYS ( where he is currently CEO, leading the strategic plan of the company from a profile of engineering services subcontractor to a full production contractor in space sector. Under his management, EMXYS has led more than 10 ESA and private space projects as main contractor, and 15 as partner, involving players like AIRBUS, GMV, ESA, NASA, JAXA, DLR and ONERA mainly on power electronics, mixed design and instrumentation. At present his interest focuses on optical communications for intersatellite links and LEO to orbit communications.

The standard used by the European Space Agency for the definition and implementation of spacecraft regulated power buses, unlike other existing standards by the American Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics, SAE International or the International Deep Space Interoperability Standards, imposes very tight requirements for load connection to the regulated main bus. Understanding the stability implications of the output impedance requirement and its interaction with payload power supplies is a key for reducing electromagnetic interferences and implementing regulated buses for small spacecraft.


Paulius Kozlovas (Ignitis Group / Vilnius, Lithuania)

Energy Ecosystem Vision for Baltic Sea Region 

Monday, 19th June, 11:45–12:30, Room A

Paulius Kozlovas is an energy professional, currently serving as the head of a technology development team at the leading energy utility in the Baltic region. His research and expertise revolve around effectively tackling the issue of premature saturation in renewable energy generation, particularly emphasizing the critical need to address the lack of flexible demand. By sharing my insights, He aims to enlighten the audience about the formidable challenge of facilitating and encouraging continued investments in sustainable power generation.

The presentation elucidates the visionary Baltic energy ecosystem, poised to propel our region towards a future characterized by increased independence and energy security. It explains the imperative role of flexible demand in nurturing renewable developments, while proffering viable solutions for consideration.
