About

I was born in Viana do Castelo and received my MSc degree in Electrical Engineering in 2014 from the Faculty of Engineering from the University of Porto (FEUP), Portugal. Currently I am a PhD student in Electrical Engineering in University of Porto, and a Researcher at INESC TEC in its Center for Power and Energy Systems.

My research interests include demand side management, energy efficiency, renewable integration, optimization techniques and machine learning.

AnyPLACE - An Energy Management System to Enhance Demand Response Participation

Authors
Abreu, C; Rua, D; Costa, T; Machado, P; Pecas Lopes, JAP; Heleno, M;

Publication
2017 IEEE MANCHESTER POWERTECH

Abstract
This paper describes an energy management system that is being developed in the AnyPLACE project to support new energy services, like demand response, in residential buildings. In the project end-user interfaces are designed and implemented to allow the input of preferences regarding the flexible use of shiftable and thermal appliances. Monitoring and self-learning algorithm are used to allow additional information to be collected and an automation platform is available for the management and control of appliances. An energy management algorithm is presented that processes end-user preferences and devices characteristics to produce an optimal dispatch considering demand response incentives. Results show the successful implementation of an optimized energy scheduling.

Automation and User Interaction Schemes for Home Energy Management - A Combined Approach

Authors
Rua, D; Abreu, C; Costa, T; Heleno, M;

Publication
2016 IEEE 21ST INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES AND FACTORY AUTOMATION (ETFA)

Abstract
This paper presents the development framework for an energy management platform that is being developed within the AnyPLACE project. In order to ensure that end-users become active participants in services like demand response, a combined approach is necessary in terms of monitoring, automation, and user interfacing. The success in engaging the end-user, as the centerpiece of the energy management challenge, is vital in taking advantage of a more efficient use of energy, as it is shown in this paper. The proposed framework can be run in a single board computer.
