Power Systems


Work description

The research plan involves the development of R&D activity in the area of power system protection and automation, modelling, simulation and power system analysis, aiming to contribute with new smart grid protection and automation strategies for distribution networks with large scale integration of renewable energy sources. The R&D activities will also focus on the development of a protection and network automation laboratorial test system, based in a real-time simulator. Moreover, the researcher should participate in activities of scientific supervision of researchers and development of new R&D projects. Intervention in the scientific and professional communities, as well as coordination and participation in scientific and technological dissemination initiatives.
