Outcomes of ERIGrid Virtual Final Conference

With its end date in April 2020, the ERIGrid project presented the performed work and achieved results in the Virtual Final Conference on 1 April 2020. With nearly 100 participants on the line, the ERIGrid consortium successfully disseminated the outcomes of the project and obtained concluding feedback from stakeholders. Read more...

ERIGrid Transforming Education in Power System Testing

New smart energy era calls for new approaches in education and training. Addressing the rising complexity of intelligent energy systems, the ERIGrid consortium has developed a variety of state-of-the-art materials and tools for students, researchers and other professionals in the ICT and power system domain. All of the resources are open-access, and ERIGrid encourages their use and replicability. Read more...

Transient Control in Microgrids: TCMG Success Story

User project TCMG developed a new optimisation method for transient control of networks with a large amount of photovoltaics (PV). Tested at the NSGL facility of SINTEF, the method makes it possible to control all inverters for the PV-system simultaneously. Read more...

Enhancing the Renewable Energy Hosting Capacity of Distribution Networks: HOLISTICA Success Story

Coordinated voltage control concepts can delay expensive and long-term grid reinforcement while increasing the distributed generation hosting capacity of electric distribution networks. In order to develop solutions to this problem, the HOLISTICA user group used ERIGrid lab access for their research at DTU’s SYSLAB facility. Read more...

Networked Feedback Control of DER for Real-Time Voltage Regulation: TEAM-VAR2 Success Story

At the SYSLAB facility of DTU, user project TEAM-VAR2 experimentally analysed whether networked control approaches, which use the reactive power capabilities of inverters in distribution grids, are practically able to solve over- and under-voltage problems. Read more...

Integration of Solar PV Parks in the Power Network of Cyprus: CYPRESS Success Story

User group CYPRESS studied the impact and the interactions that a PV system has with a real part of the Cyprus grid under different operational challenges. Their real-time simulation tests were performed at the SmartEST Lab of Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT). Read more...

Efficiency Testing of PV Battery Hybrid System:
ICVP Success Story

The ICVP user project dealt with efficiency tests of PV battery hybrid system. The project applied for the ERIGrid lab access in order to carry out round-robin testing of the efficiency measurement between AIT and AIST in Japan. Read more...

Outcomes of the ERIGrid/CINELDI Workshop
"Smart Grid Laboratory Developments"

On 28-29 October 2019, ERIGrid organised a joint workshop “Smart Grid Laboratory Developments” together with the Centre for Intelligent Electricity Distribution (CINELDI) and SINTEF.
