- RESUME - CURRICULUM VITAE

 

RESUME

Joan Peracaula (M'94) received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the Technical University of Catalonía (UPC), Barcelona, Spain, in 1961.

Hís academic career, as Full Professor since 1965, spans a continuous uninterrupted period of more than 40 years at the Technical Universities of Madrid, UPM, and Barcelona, UPC. where he actually is an active Emeritus Professor.

As first professor in the subjects, starting in the middel of the 60's, he pionered the Spanish higher education in Control Systems first and in Power Electronics subsequently, in the Technical Universities of Madrid and Barcelona.

He has been advisor or evaluator of the thesis of several actual Full Professors and Associate Professors at different spanish universities. Some of them had previously been engineering students attending his courses or PhD students enrolled in his research team.

Among his Academic and R&D managing responsabilities, developed during several periodes of his career, can be mentioned:
From 1985 to 1987, was the first Director and reponsible of launching the activities of the Spanish "National Center for Microelectronics"-"Centro Nacionalde Microelectrónica"(CNM).The CNM was founded in 1985

From 1987 to 1991 was the Dean of the UPC's Faculty of Engíneering (ETSII), the largest of the UPC.

Has been active as Lecturer at the IEEE PELS Distínguished Lecturer Regional Program, Región 8.

Is member of the IEEE Power Electronics Society, IEEE Industry Applications Society, IEEE Industrial Electronics Society, IEEE Circuits and Systems Society, EPE Association, and others mentioned in points below.

He has led as the Principal Investigator more than 30 large research and R&D projects and has published extensively in his áreas of expertise, whích include variable speed drives, fuzy logic, neural networks applications, and renewable energíes.

Hís industrial experience includes time with ASEA (Allmënna Svenska Aktiebolaget, at the moment ABB), CAESA (Control y Aplicaciones S.A.), AEG (Allgemeine Elektrizitäts Gesellschaft, subsequently Electrolux), Sperry Rand UNIVAC (subsequently UNISYS)

Juan Peracaula is the recipient of the several AWARDS AND RECOGNITIONS (See the end of the CV)

A list of other activities such as:
Advisor of Ph. D. Thesis / Member of Commissions for Ph. D. Thesis evaluation, Reviewer/Referee of international publications, Evaluation taks, Member of Expert's Comissions, Management responsabilities in R & D / Direction and Management of University Academic & Research Centers, Member of international working groups and other Academic and Research activities is after "Publications"at OTHER ACTIVITIES
