Fernando José Figueiredo Bento
PhD Student
Fernando Bento received both the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Electric and Computer Engineering from the University of Beira Interior, Covilhã, Portugal, in 2014 and 2016, respectively. Currently, he is a Ph.D. student in Electric and Computer Engineering at the same institution. His scientific activities focus efficiency analysis, fault detection and fault tolerance in electronic power converters, namely DC-DC power converters.
