Fernando José Figueiredo Bento
PhD Student
Fernando Bento received both the BSc and MSc degrees in Electric and Computer Engineering from University of Beira Interior, Covilhã, Portugal, in 2014 and 2016, respectively. Currently, he is a PhD student in Electric and Computer Engineering at the University of Beira Interior, and PhD student of CISE - Electromechatronic Systems Research Centre. His scientific research activities focus on energy efficiency analysis, fault diagnostic and fault tolerance in electronic power converters, namely DC-DC converters.
