The electrical energy system is facing a number of emerging technologies. These have to be integrated into the existing power transmission system in a "smart" way to alleviate the future changes the grid is exposed to. The emerging technologies which can support the improvement of the existing grid includes better measurements in PMUs, new types of generation (wind, solar), improved long distance, and potentially underground, transmission with HVDC technology and energy storage both dedicated for the grid and possibly also utilizing electrical vehicles.
The objectives of the project are to:
Develop innovative methods for efficient design of a smart grid. Develop innovative methods for efficient operation of a smart grid. Coordinate applications of innovative smart grids.
