About

I have graduated in Electrical and Computer Engineering in the area of Power Systems from the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP) in July 2003. In the following year, I joined the Power Systems Unit of the Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering of Porto (INESC Porto) where I have been developing my research activities. In December 2005 I obtained the MSc degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering with a specialization in Power Systems from FEUP. I later obtained my PhD degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering, also from FEUP, in November 2010.

My research interests have been directed towards the integration of Distributed Generation and Microgeneration in electrical distribution grids as well as to the development of advanced functionalities for Smart Grids involving Renewable Energy Sources, storage devices and Demand Response. In these areas, I have actively participated in the European FP5 MICROGRIDS project, FP6 MORE MICROGRIDS project and FP7 MERGE, SuSTAINABLE, iTESLA and evolvDSO projects, to name but a few. I was also involved in the national INOVGRID project with EDP Distribution (Portuguese DSO) and participated in several consultancy projects for EDP Distribution, EFACEC (Portuguese equipment manufacturer), EDA (System Operator of the Azores islands), GeSto Energia (Consulting company), among others. I was invited Assistant Professor at FEUP in 2015. In addition, I gave advanced training and presented technical workshops within the field of Microgrids and Smart Grids both in Portugal and abroad.

Currently I am a Senior Researcher in the Centre for Power and Energy Systems (CPES) of INESC Technology and Science (INESC TEC), coordinated by INESC Porto, where I am involved in European H2020 FEEdBACk, InteGrid and SENSIBLE projects and ERA-NET SmartGuide project. My main responsibilities are project management, preparation of proposals for R&D / consultancy projects and writing of deliverables, technical reports and scientific papers. I am also Assistant Professor at the Lusófona University of Porto (ULP) since 2011.

I am author of more than 40 papers in international journals and conferences, author of a book and co-author of four book chapters.

Abstract
This work is within the scope of set of consultancy studies made for Portuguese islands. It focuses on the integration of Pumped Storage Power in isolated islands. The paper starts to address several power systems circumstances about two Portuguese islands on the energetic level. For each of these islands, an independent examination of the conditions to install a reversible hydro power plant is accomplished. Therefore, the energy volume to be stored due to excess of renewable generation and the ideal power and number of the pumps and turbines to be installed were identified and evaluated for the sake of using the produced energy surplus as to be pumped and later generated. The paper enhances the importance of storing energy in the operation of isolated and small systems with considerable amount of intermittent power resources as well as the conditions for the viability of installing new exploitations of this kind.
