Justino Miguel Rodrigues was born in Penafiel (Portugal) on 9th September 1985. He graduated in Electrical Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto - FEUP (2010) and obtained his M.Sc. in Renewable Energy Systems in July 2011.
He has joined INESC TEC in 2010 as member of the REIVE Project (Smart Grids with Electric Vehicles), where he was responsible for the development of computational simulation models for prototypes of power electronic converters integrating advanced control functionalities developed in the scope of the project.
He has integrated in COMUTE-DC project in 2013, participating in the development of a laboratorial setup of a small-scale multi-terminal DC grid. Was also responsible for executing the laboratorial validation of the advanced functionalities developed for multi-terminal DC grid developed in the scope of the project.
He is currently integrating the SENSIBLE project since 2016, being responsible for the development of computational simulation models to validate the integration of energy storage systems in low-voltage grids regarding fault-ride-through and islanded operation capabilities. He is also involved in the development of optimization algorithms for the optimal management of energy storage systems integrated in the medium-voltage and low-voltage grids which will integrate the final demonstrator site.
He is also responsible for the development of Lab Device Manager software, designed to make the implementation, management and monitoring of laboratorial experiments easier and more accessible, making use of the equipment and infrastructure available in REIVE laboratory.
An additional and solid knowledge in automation and programming was obtained from the developed work, constituting a valuable complement to the accumulated knowledge in power systems and renewable energy systems.
