Luís Miguel Miranda was born in Barcelos (Portugal) on 9th October 1987. He graduated in Electrical Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto - FEUP (2011), and completed his M.Sc. in Power Electronics and Systems in July 2011.
In December 2010 he joined INESC TEC (formerly INESC Porto as a member of the REIVE project (Smart-Grids with Electrical Vehicles) research team. His main activities were focused on develop power electronics converter prototypes to integrate within the smart grid management strategies demonstrated with this project.
In 2013 he integrated the research team of the COMUTE-DC project, being in charge of development of the laboratory equipment to implement small-scale multi-terminal DC link, including line simulators and VSC converters.
From 2014 to 2016 he was engaged in the project Sustainable, specifically in the development of power converters with advanced functionality for PV and energy storage to be installed in a pilot village in Évora – Portugal. Since 2016 he is with the project Sensible, involved in the development of a novel storage system for low-voltage grids with fault ride through capabilities, which would be installed and tested in a real grid.
He also has field experience in cooperation with companies, such as Omniflow. Within this cooperation, a net-zero public light system was developed, combining PV cells and a unique wind turbine design.
This work results in an extensive experience in electric and electronic design, as well as solid knowledge of commercial solutions for smart grids and its integration in laboratory environment. He also has skill in electrical measurement and analysis with laboratorial instruments.
