Electra IRP at EDST 2015

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!
