A joint ELECTRA - C/sells workshop was held in Stuttgart (DE) on 19th October 2017. Very significant potential synergies were found about approach and proposed solutions to the grid management, and the basis for common actions focused on the possible implementation of the web-of-cells concept developed by ELECTRA were established (read more).
ELECTRA project is now in its final phase and use cases for the validation of the web-of cells concept are implemented at several laboratories. On the 24th of October 2017, live demonstration of ELECTRA Post-Primary Voltage Control (PPVC) was shown to representatives of five Norwegian DSOs (Skagerak Energi AS, Eidsiva Nett AS, TrønderEnergi Nett, Helgeland Kraft Nett, NTE Nett AS) and Energy Norway Association. PPVC was implemented as Power Hardware in the Loop (PHIL) in SINTEF Energy/NTNU Smart Grid Laboratory. On the picture Merkebu Zenebe Degefa explains the PPVC implementation.
