Anita Martinčević, PhD(c)
Anita Martinčević (born in Varaždin 1990.) graduated from University of Zagreb Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (UNIZGFER) in 2013 in the area of automatic control. The same year she starts to work on UNIZGFER as a research assistant on Department of Control and Computer Engineering and starts her Ph.D. studies.
She participated on a research project Enhancement of Research, Development and Technology Transfer Capacities in Energy Management Systems for Buildings (ENHEMS-Buildings) funded by European Regional Development Fund as one of the lead researchers. Within this project research and development infrastructure for comprehensive and energy-efficient control of comfort in buildings was established on UNIZGFER through implementation of energy efficient optimal control on two floors of UNIZGFER skyscraper. Her work was oriented on development of advanced estimation algorithms for identification of mathematical models suitable for predictive control of buildings and estimation of unmeasurable disturbance heat fluxes affecting the building.
Second part of her work was oriented on development of algorithms for energy (price) optimal control of zone temperature and development of algorithms for direct power control of thermal actuators. Currently, she is working on international project Smart Building – Smart Grid – Smart City (3Smart) funded by the Interreg Danube Transnational Programme which follows the main idea of ENHEMS-Buildings by integrating the building zones into general system for building energy management able to coordinate all the building subsystems including thermal energy production, microgrid, distribution grid or any other consumer with a goal to reach the mutual benefits which are beyond the ones achievable by individual control of every building subsystem.
She is the author of 10 research articles on international scientific conferences and co-author of one journal paper.
