In the past year, ELECTRA finalized the detailed definition of 6 main Use Cases which are part of the overall ELECTRA Web-of-Cells concept. The use cases are namely Inertia Response Power Control (IRPC), Frequency Containment Control (FCC), Balance Restoration Control (BRC), Balance Steering Control (BSC), Primary Voltage Control (PVC) and Post Primary Voltage Control (PPVC).
For each Use Case detailed control functions are developed and implemented, as well as simulated. Main objective and challenge in the final year is to further consolidate the concepts and to perform lab-scale testing and validation of the ELECTRA use cases, their combinations and all related control functions. The attached WP7 fact sheets provide an overview of simulations and lab-scale experiments to be performed.
EERA JP Smart Grids members will meet in ISPRA for the Steering Committee meeting which will be focused on defining strategy, objectives and activities of the R&D plan for the next four years. The outcomes of the review meeting of the ELECTRA IRP with the EU Commission will be also illustrated and key actions and perspectives for the last year of the project will be discussed.
Moreover, on 5 April, a Workshop on International Cooperation will be held (see the attached Agenda). During the workshop ELECTRA IRP activities such as researchers exchanges mobility scheme and International Cooperation will be presented. Links and synergies with Mission Innovation will be also discussed.
First meeting of the National Stakeholders Coordination Group on Smart Networks for the Energy Transition
Brussels, 28th March 2017
The National Stakeholder Coordination Group (NSCG) is a sounding board and exchange platform for national R&I stakeholders in the area of energy systems and networks, enabling them to contribute actively and in a coordinated way to the goals as agreed in the Stakeholder Declaration on SET-Plan Action 4. After the constitutional NSCG meeting in Barcelona on November 2016, stakeholders from the above named groups are invited to a first regular meeting on 28 March 2017 in Brussels (see the Agenda). The EERA JP on Smart Grids and the ELECTRA IRP will be represented by a few key members and in particular by the Coordinator, Luciano Martini (RSE).
