Francinei Vieira. I am from Brazil. I am 26 years old. I received a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Federal University of Itajuba - UNIFEI, on 2017 and 2019, respectively. I was with the Smart Grids Group, where I performed an analysis among different digital models for transient studies in power systems. As a master’s student, my main investigation was the impact of load models on power harmonic metrics in power systems. In 2014, I joined the Brazil Scientific Mobility Program (BSMP) for a year of study and research abroad. I was hosted by the University of West Florida, and Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT), both in the USA.
Research in the Etopia project:
I am working on reproducible in-situ transient magnetic field measurements for power electronic applications, since transient currents are a dominant EMI source. This research project mainly focuses on the modelling of transient field measurements in the low-frequency range, including the analysis of calibration techniques on measurement devices and its application to EMC compliance in the power sector. The objective is to optimize the measurement and calibration procedure for validation of transient magnetic field probes.
