  • Danilo Brandao was born in São Gonçalo do Sapucai, Brazil in 1986. He received his B.Sc and M.Sc degrees in control and automation and electrical engineering from Universidade Estadual Paulista, Brazil in Jul/2011 and Jan/2013. He is currently a Ph.D student from State University of Campinas, Brazil making one year internship at University of Padova, Italy. He has been a scholarship student from FAPESP since 2008 and he worked at Colorado School of Mines in 2009 and 2013. His main interests are power filters, power theory, power quality, photovoltaic, selective compensation, distributed generation control and cooperative control/compensation.


  • Cooperative Power-Based Control of Low-Voltage Microgrids - Cooperative control of several and dispersed distributed generators in order to improve the overall system power quality, stability and efficiency. Such cooperative control allows distributed units, equipped with simple/conventional control in each switching power interface, to contribute to a global objective within the microgrid.
