About

Filipe Joel Soares received the Physics degree (five-year course) from the Faculty of Sciences and an Electrical Engineering (Renewable Energies) Postgrad from Porto University, Porto, Portugal, in 2004 and 2007, respectively. He also received the Ph.D. degree in Sustainable Energy Systems, in the MIT|Portugal Program, from Porto University, Porto, Portugal, in 2012.

Currently he is a Senior Researcher in the Centre for Power and Energy Systems of INESC Porto and Assistant Professor in the Lusophone University of Porto. His research activity is directed towards the integration of distributed energy resources (i.e. controllable loads, electric vehicles, renewable energy sources and stationary storage) in distribution grids, as well as to the development of advanced algorithms and functionalities for their management and participation in electricity markets.

He is author of more than 50 papers in international journals and conferences.

Abstract
This paper presents a data-driven spatial net-load forecasting model that is applied to the distribution network expansion problem. The model uses population census data with Information Theory-based Feature Selection to predict spatial adoption patterns of residential electric vehicle chargers and photovoltaic modules. Results are high-resolution maps (0.02 km2) that allow distribution network planners to forecast asymmetric changes in load patterns and assess resulting impacts on installed HV/MV substation transformers in distribution systems. A risk analysis routine identifies the investment that minimizes the maximum regret function for a 15-year planning horizon. One of the outcomes from this study shows that traditional approaches to allocate distributed energy resources in distribution networks underestimate the impact of adopting EV and PV on the grid. The comparison of different allocation methods with the presented diffusion model suggests that using conventional approaches might result in strong underinvestment in capacity expansion during early uptake and overinvestment in later diffusion stages. © 2018

Abstract
Demand management is becoming an indispensable part of grid operation with its potential to aid supply/demand balancing, reduce peaks, mitigate congestions and improve voltage profiles in the grid. Effective deployments require a huge number of reliable participators who are aware of the flexibilities of their devices and who continuously seek to achieve savings and earnings. In such applications, smart meters can ease consumption behavior visibility, while building automation systems can enable the remote and automated control of flexible loads. Moreover, gamification techniques can be used to motivate and direct customers, evaluate their performance, and improve their awareness and knowledge in the long term. This study focuses on the design and field demonstration of a flexible device-oriented, smart meter and building automation system (BAS) compatible with a gamified load management (LM) platform for residential customers. The system is designed, based on exploratory surveys and systematic gamification approaches, to motivate the customers to reduce their peak period consumption and overall energy consumption through competing or collaborating with others, and improving upon their past performance. This paper presents the design, development and implementation stages, together with the result analysis of an eight month field demonstration in four houses with different user types in Istanbul, Turkey.
