Kristina Sadovskaia

M.Sc. Technology: Electrical Engineering (Lappeenranta University of Technology)

Former guest researcher


Kristina Sadovskaia has been a visiting researcher at RLI between September and December 2017. She is currently working on the global electricity transmission lines data collection and analysis at the Solar Economy Laboratory of Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) in Finland and cooperates with the research field Off-Grid Systems at RLI.

Kristina’s research interest focuses on the integration of the renewable energy into the existing electrical grid, further development of the grid, and global solutions modelling. She is also interested in improving the grid structure and supply sources structure in a way that reduces inequality among countries and global regions. At RLI, she is combining grid data from different countries and merging LUT and RLI databases in order to create a reliable foundation for future research on grid development methods.

Kristina has previously been working on the creation of a statistical database and mathematical formula for power loss estimation, which is now part of the LUT global energy transition model. Her earlier work experience includes electricity markets studies, especially for Russia. Kristina has developed and structured a range of major technical and financial parameters for the main Interregional Distribution Grid Companies of the Russian Federation and prepared a dataset for research in this context. Earlier, she has been working as an engineer at the Institute for the Design of Machine Building Enterprises for five years, where she has been designing internal power supplies for industrial enterprises.
