Grant number: 12/10002-8
Support Opportunities:Research Grants - Visiting Researcher Grant - International
Duration: August 14, 2012 - October 31, 2012
Field of knowledge:Engineering - Electrical Engineering - Power Systems
Principal Investigator:Fernando Pinhabel Marafão
Grantee:Fernando Pinhabel Marafão
Visiting researcher: Alessandro Costabeber
Visiting researcher institution: Università degli Studi di Padova, Italy
Host Institution: Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP). Campus Experimental de Sorocaba. Sorocaba , SP, Brazil


Several studies related to the visitor´s program of activities are currently in progress at Group of Automation and Integrated Systems (UNESP / Sorocaba) and at the Department of Information Engineering (UNIPD, Italy). Thus, the activities planned for the visit will be programmed so that the researcher could contribute to the realization of various projects, as well as to the study of a central problem, which has not been addressed by any of the other projects or researchers. Thus, special attention will be directed to the problem of dynamic mapping of micro-grids parameters, i.e. dynamic identification of line impedances and equivalent circuits for load and supply circuit modeling, by means of the measuring voltages and currents and, the application of the Conservative Power Theory. It is also expected the participation of Dr. Costabeber as a lecturer in some classes of the Master's Program in Electrical Engineering from FEB / UNESP, as well as in workshops with the participation of UNESP's internal and external audience. Therefore, considering the 3-month duration of the visit, the work schedule is organized around four main activities, and the corresponding 12 weeks in Brazil. Such activities can be indicated as: 1) The study of possible techniques of dynamic mapping of micro-grid parameters; 2) The study of the impact of the network dynamic mapping for monitoring and controlling a residential micro-grid; 3) Participation in workshops; 4) Participation in post-graduation courses.
