The "2015 International Symposium on Smart Electric Distribution Systems and Technologies" (EDST 2015) will be held in Vienna, on September 8-11, 2015.
The main objective of this symposium is to bring the research and industry community together to discuss recent developments and approaches to support the roll out of Smart Grid solutions with a strong focus on replicability, scalability and system validation.
ELECTRA project will deliver two oral presentations:
Reinhilde D'ulst (Vito) "Voltage and Frequency Control for Future Power Systems: the ELECTRA IRP Proposal".
Angelo Frascella (ENEA) "Looking for the unified classification and evaluation approach of SG interface standards for the purposes of ELECTRA IRP".
Moreover, on 9th September, a special session "Experiences from the ELECTRA IRP Researchers Exchange (REX)" is organized. The six researchers who were successful in REX Call 1 will present their results and share their experience of exchange working in leading smart grid organisations. Come along to hear first-hand the researchers, learn more about ELECTRA project, evaluate the opportunity to participate to the next calls for Researchers Exchange!
Important contribution of ELECTRA to Session 3: Operation, Control & Protection. Luciano Martini delivered the oral presentation: "ELECTRA IRP approach to Voltage and Frequency control for future power systems with high DER penetration." The poster "Scenarios and requirements for the operation of the 2030+ electricity network" was displayed by Tecnalia.
VITO will present the ELECTRA Web-of-Cells architecture at the Smart Energy Workshop in Konstanz (Germany) at July 14th 2015.
This workshop is a joint organization of the SmartGridsBW-Platform and the European Project consortium CoSSMic (Collaborating Smart Solar-powered Micro-grids) and will be attended by scientists, component suppliers, utility companies and system operators to discuss innovative technologies and approaches to integrate a high fraction of renewable energy.
This workshop provides an excellent opportunity to engage with other leading Euopean projects, such as CoSSMic, IDE4L and evolvDSO as well as industry stakeholders to explain the ELECTRA proposed Web-of-Cells architecture, the rationale behind it and the technical challenges. The learnings and feedback that we receive this way will be input for further fine-tuning of the web-of-cells concept.
