Abstract
In the last few decades, the vast majority of world states have faced increased energy consumption using more environmentally friendly production technologies. The use of traditional renewable energies like hydro, wind and solar has been the solution found. Despite this, new technical solutions and strategies are beginning to emerge, of which Floating Solar Photovoltaic (FSPV) systems are part. In this framework, southern European countries have excellent climate conditions for reinforcing the use of solar energy. This research assess the existing Portuguese potential for floating PV systems and its integration in the power grid. A floating solar power plant of 1MW in Gouvães dam included in the Tâmega hydroelectric complex, under construction in northern Portugal was sizing and evaluated its energy potential. A techno-economic feasibility study was also carried out taking into account the current investment costs and energy tariffs in the Iberian liberalized market. This integrated analysis allowed to obtain important results on the current state of the art, types of technologies available, their costs and the payback period for this type of projects.

ENERGY CONVERSION AND MANAGEMENT

Abstract
A vital element in making a sustainable world is correctly managing the energy in the domestic sector. Thus, this sector evidently stands as a key one for to be addressed in terms of climate change goals. Increasingly, people are aware of electricity savings by turning off the equipment that is not been used, or connect electrical loads just outside the on-peak hours. However, these few efforts are not enough to reduce the global energy consumption, which is increasing. Much of the reduction was due to technological improvements, however with the advancing of the years new types of control arise. Domestic appliances with the purpose of heating and cooling rely on thermostatic regulation technique. The study in this paper is focused on the subject of an alternative power management control for home appliances that require thermal regulation. In this paper a Model Predictive Control scheme is assessed and its performance studied and compared to the thermostat with the aim of minimizing the cooling energy consumption through the minimization of the energy cost while satisfying the adequate temperature range for the human comfort. In addition, the Model Predictive Control problem formulation is explored through tuning weights with the aim of reducing energetic consumption and cost. For this purpose, the typical consumption of a 24 h period of a summer day was simulated a three-level tariff scheme was used. The new contribution of the proposal is a modulation scheme of a two-level Model Predictive Control's control signal as an interface block between the Model Predictive Control output and the domestic appliance that functions as a two-state power switch, thus reducing the Model Predictive Control implementation costs in home appliances with thermal regulation requirements.

The IEC 61850 in the Portuguese distribution substations: Contemporary challenges and possible solutions

Abstract
Interoperability may be defined as the ability of intelligent electronic devices (IED's) to exchange and use information correctly. Although the IEC 61850 standards define a consistent methodology for interconnecting IEDs in substation using LAN based technologies to promote interoperability, this ability to exchange information correctly is not always achieved between different IED's from different manufactures. This paper reports the assessment of IED's, featured with IEC 61850 standards and connected to the same communication network from different manufactures. Different interoperability tests are performed and the difficulty and challenges to exchange and receive information is also reported. Possible solutions on the XML schema to generate a compliant SCL file as well as the way to scale up the standardization of the substation project is also explored and discussed in this paper.

Abstract
Voltage stability has been of the major concern in power system operation. To prevent these problems, technical staff evaluates frequently the distance of the operation state to the voltage collapse point. This distance normally is calculated with power flow equations. This classic technique is very slow for electric power systems with large dimension. In abnormal exploration situations it may introduce serious limitation in the voltage stability analysis process. So, the application of a fast and reliable evaluation technique is very important to diminish the evaluation time. This paper presents a study of the application of artificial neural network (ANN) to the evaluation of this distance to the voltage collapse point. To detection the point of collapse the new method FSQV was used.

A system approach to the analysis of traffic dynamics

Publicação
Conference Proceeding - IEEE International Conference on Networking, Sensing and Control

Abstract
This paper presents the Simulator of Intelligent Transportation Systems (SITS). The SITS is based on a microscopic simulation approach to reproduce real traffic conditions in an urban or non-urban network and considers different types of vehicles, drivers and roads. A dynamical analysis of several traffic phenomena is then addressed. The results of using classical system theory tools point out that it is possible to study traffic systems, taking advantage on the knowledge gathered with automatic control algorithms. In this line of thought, it was also presented a new modelling formalism based on the embedding of statistics and Fourier transform.
