Prior to receiving his PhD from NCSU, he received a B.S. in Energy Engineering and an M.S. with highest honors in Energy and Nuclear Engineering from the University of Bologna.</p> <p>His current research project is about HTS-based superconducting magnets quench detection. Nuclear fusion technology, high energy particle physics, power transmission, energy storage, magnetic resonance imaging are some of the fields where superconducting materials play a crucial role. They would all benefit from the use of HTS materials. However one of the unsolved issues that prevent the use of HTS materials from becoming widespread is their quench protection. Federico is developing and investigating a novel quench detection system based on the use of optical fibers as distributed sensors. The measurement system takes advantage of Rayleigh back-scattering that occurs in optical fibers to estimate quantities related to temperature and strain. Thanks to a high spatial resolution and quick measurement, normal zones can be detected and localized and their size monitored in time. These features, along with an understanding of the minimum propagating zone (MPZ) enables a new simple quench detection logic, based on the size of the MPZ instead of a threshold voltage.</p> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-cc-contact-position field--type-string field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Position:</div> <div class="field__item">Young Professionals Chair</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-cc-contact-email field--type-email field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Email:</div> <div class="field__item"><a href="mailto:fscurti@ncsu.edu">fscurti@ncsu.edu</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-cc-contact-dir-ref field--type-entity-reference field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Directory:</div> <div class='field__items'> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/38" hreflang="en">Administrative Committee (AdCom)</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/50" hreflang="en">Committee/Chapter Chairs</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-cc-ieee-region-ref field--type-entity-reference field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Region:</div> <div class="field__item">3</div> </div> Fri, 24 Aug 2018 19:50:47 +0000 email_registration_tWR87Mmstd 351 at https://dev.ieeecsc.org
