About

I graduated with a M.Sc. degree in Electrical and Computers Engineering from the Faculty of Engineering, University of Porto (FEUP) in 2016. Drove by a great interest for concepts like “smart grids”, “energy efficiency” and “integration of renewable energy sources” developed a Master thesis about the identification and analyses of solutions for the operation and control of low voltage distribution system with large scale integration of microgeneration units.

I start working in December 2016 as a junior researcher at INESC TEC, in the Centre for Power and Energy Systems

Abstract
Using power-hardware-in-the-loop is a solution for testing the behavior of devices on an emulated grid, with greater flexibility and avoiding the introduction of disturbances or critical operating conditions in the utility grid. This paper highlights the implementation of such a setup, its challenges and the solutions to cope with its limitations. The emulated grid is then used for the experimental validation of a 10kVA converter, regarding fault-ride-through, dynamic reactive current support and frequency and voltage based droop control, leading to the identification of design improvement recommendations.
