Biopic

    Nowadays, and for the last 1 year, he has been working in CERE as Project Engineer. He works in different areas of the company, such as: testing data analysis, certification of PV converters and PPCs simulation of PV converters and PPCs, and simulation and certification of renewable energies power plants.

    Chiefly, Samuel has worked in the simulation department since its beginning participating in projects for:

    • Model validation for PV inverters and Power Plant Controllers (PPCs), model evaluation in terms of LVRT response, PQ curves, Active Power support curves according frequency, grid quality, etcetera.
    • Power system simulations for the evaluation of grid code compliance of full power plants, static and dynamic evaluation in electrical nodes, harmonic evaluation in grid connection points for renewable energies power plants and for the requirements of the different countries’ grid codes, power plant sizing based on PQ diagram for CAPEX optimization and renewable energies power plants certification.

    Expertise on field of simulation software, such as PSSe and DigSilent.

    Initially, he started in CERE while he was studying for his bachelor’s degree. Before CERE, he had participated in an internship program in Plenum instalaciones y proyectos for over 2 months, taking the very first step in the professional engineering world and learning about low voltage (up to 1000 Vac) electrical installation design.

    Education

    • Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain.
