Activities within electric power generation, transmission and distribution systems, part 2

The aim of this work package is to investigate and evaluate solutions for an efficient, effective and secure design and operation of the future power systems. In particular, key focus will be on solutions to allow the integration of large scale renewable energy sources in the power grid and on how power-electronics and electro-mechanical based devices can change the way in which electric energy is produced, transported and used. For 2020, the focus will be on
exploiting the impact of digitalization on the control and operation of the future power systems. In the future, there will be the need for advanced technologies, especially involving the integration of ICT and power electronics, to plan, manage, monitor, control and deliver
electricity in a safe and reliable way and at the same time increase the flexibility and efficiency of the power systems. This is at the heart of the digitalization process of the electric power systems, where the combination of advanced power technology together with an extended layer of communication will allow to enhance the performance of the power system by taking advantage of the observability introduced by the ICT and the controllability offered by the different power-electronics based devices connected to the system.
