The route towards a more energy sustainable world goes through an improved energy system on all levels from the producers to the consumers. The technological challenges that need to be addressed to realize the strategic energy objectives are faced in the program "controllable and intelligent power components".
The objective is to develop innovative power components with advanced control and monitoring that pave the path towards an optimum power transmission and distribution system. This implies investigates how to add smartness (intelligence and controllability) and added novel functions to power components used in grid connections.
The impact of CIPOWER will be to provide the fast developing Smart European Electricity Grid with innovative power components, methods, services and solutions that can provide the most reliable, available, flexible and economic power grid for the future.
