About

I was born in Porto (Portugal) in 8 April 1955, graduated in Electrical Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto - FEUP (1977), and completed my PhD in Power Systems in 1988, also from the University of Porto. In November 1996 I got the aggregation title from the University of Porto. In 1978 I joined the Department of Electrical Engineering of FEUP, where I am Full Professor since 2000. In the period 1990-98, I was also the Director of the Library of FEUP. In the period 2001-08, I was the director of the MSc program on Information Management, and I am presently the director of the PhD program in Sustainable Energy Systems, integrated in the MIT-Portugal program. I lectured several courses in graduation, MSc and PhD courses in Electrical Engineering and Power Systems and supervised the research activities of many graduation, MSc and PhD students. I also collaborated with the Management School of the University of Porto, lecturing MSc courses on Decision-Aid. I am a member of the Senate of the University of Porto since October 2009.

In 1985 I joined INESC (now INESC TEC). Since 1996 I coordinate the Centre for Power and Energy Systems of INESC TEC, leading 60+ researchers (including 20+ PhD). I am presently the President of the Scientific Council of INESC TEC. I have been involved in several national, EU and international RTD projects and in development contracts and consultancy for utilities, TSO, DSO, industrial partners, government agencies and for the Regulatory Authority for the Energy Services of Portugal. In particular, I was or am the responsible for the INESC TEC research team in the EU financed projects “CARE” (Advanced Control Advice for power systems with large-scale integration of Renewable Energy sources), “MORE CARE” (More Advanced Control Advice for Secure Operation of Isolated Power Systems with Increased Renewable Energy Penetration and Storage), “ANEMOS.PLUS” (Advanced Tools for the Management of Electricity Grids with Large-Scale Wind Generation) and “evolvDSO” (Development of methodologies and tools for new and evolving DSO roles for efficient DRES integration in distribution networks). I am presently the Principal Investigator of project “SusCity” (Urban data driven models for creative and resourceful urban transitions), financed by FCT (MPP-Testbed).

I also coordinated the research teams of the contracts “CCR” (Load Profiling and Distribution Network Characterization), with EDP Distribution (the Portuguese DSO), Study on the Impact of Large Renewable Deployment on European Electricity Higher Voltage Systems (JRC-Institute for Energy), “RESERVES” (Mid and Long Term Evaluation of the adequacy of Operational Reserve levels in the Iberian Electric Power Systems), with the TSO of Portugal (REN) and Spain (REE), “RECEP” (Development and testing of methodologies to determine the hosting capacity in the nodes of the National Grid of Portugal) (REN), “ReservaProb” (Software Module for helping setting the operational reserve of the National Electric System) (REN) and “MORA” (Long-term adequacy evaluation of reserves in a multi-area context) (REN). I was also involved in consultancy actions regarding the design of public tenders, namely the call for tenders for new wind power generation in Portugal mainland.

My research interests include classic and fuzzy modeling of power systems, reliability and optimization and decision-aid, with application to renewables’ integration, electric vehicles’ deployment and smart grids. I was involved in the organization of the international conferences PMAPS’2000, IEEE PPT’2001, ISAP’2015 and EEM’2016. I am a member of the Editorial board of EPSR (Top Reviewer in 2010) and of Int J of Multicriteria Decision Making. I am a senior member of IEEE.

Abstract
The penetration of distributed generation in medium (MV) and low (LV) voltage distribution grids has been steadily increasing every year in multiple countries, thus creating new technical challenges in grid operation and motivating developments in distributed optimization for flexibility management. The traditional centralized optimal power flow (OPF) algorithm can solve technical constraints violation. However, computational efficiency, new technologies (e.g., edge computing) and control architectures (e.g., web-of-cells) are demanding for distributed approaches. This work formulates a novel distributed multi-period OPF for three-phase unbalanced grids that is essential when integrating energy storage units in operational planning (e.g., day-ahead) of LV or local energy community grids. The decentralized constrained optimization problem is solved with the alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM) adapted for unbalanced LV grids and multi-period optimization problems. A 33-bus LV distribution grid is used as a case-study in order to define optimal battery storage scheduling along a finite time horizon that minimizes overall grid operational costs, while complying with technical constraints of the grid (e.g., voltage and current limits) and battery state-of-charge constraints. © 2020
