Fernando Ribeiro Arduini, ESR15 (Fraunhofer INT)

Fernando Ribeiro Arduini is an Early Stage Researcher (ESR) of the MSCA ETN PETER project at Fraunhofer Institute for Technological Trend Analysis INT, Euskirchen, Germany. He is working on the development of an EMI Risk Management on the Scale of the Smart Grid as a Network of Systems. His focus lies in applying an EMI risk assessment on a typical smart grid as a large, interconnected system-of-systems and proposing guidelines on hardware and software mitigation measures to recover the electrical network from EMI-induced faults.

Fernando holds a B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from the Federal University of Triângulo Mineiro in Brazil. He completed part of his studies at the University of Glasgow in the United Kingdom, where he also performed an internship on wind energy integration into the power grid. In 2019 and 2020, respectively, he accomplished his M.Sc. degree in Power Systems and MBA in Business Management with Distinction, both from the University of São Paulo in Brazil. His Master’s thesis was focused on emerging hardware and software Fault Ride-Through strategies applied to DFIG-based wind turbines. In 2019, Fernando worked at CITCEA-Barcelona Tech, Spain, on the modelling and integration of Superconducting Fault Current Limiters applied to smart grids applications.

He aims to explore smart grid applications, particularly in the EMI–risk management context. He aspires to contribute to the transition towards a secure, environmentally friendly, and economically prosperous power system.
