FUTURE GRIDS

RESERVE - smart, safe, sustanaible

To reduce CO2 emissions, consumers and utilities increasingly use renewable power sources, such as solar, wind, and biomass. But utilities face the challenge of maintaining stability of supply from weather-dependent and diverse generation sources. In the RESERVE project will develop and field test new techniques that can enable a stable supply of purely renewable resources.

“Challenges and solutions in Future Power Networks”

11-15 March 2019

Making grids “smart” requires effort which impinges on different areas of knowledge, from power system, power electronics, measurement, control and automation technologies through ICT and cyber security to marketing, social science and business aspects. We are aware of this need for professionals with new skills to manage RES-based energy networks and we want to contribute in making you an expert on this field.

Deliveriable D1.1 Scenarios & architectures for 100% RES and roles of sector actors

This deliverable provides an approach for designing energy scenarios characterized by up to 100% of RES penetration in the electricity generation. Considering as starting point the foreseen scenarios for the evolution of energy systems worldwide, we discuss the technical challenges in terms of operation of power systems under high share of RES and the contribution from ICT technology. Using a multidimensional framework we identify 7 different scenarios, which are related to the two main research questions of the project (frequency and voltage stability) and to the two selected use cases (Romania and Ireland contexts).

TRIALS

TRIAL - Ireland

The objective of the trial is to test new techniques for Voltageand system Stability by Design using SERVO.

TRIAL - Romania

In future, assuming a 100 % RES scenario, frequency will have to be managed in a completely different way and is one of the topics of investigation of RESERVE. A new frequency measurement and assessment technology will be demonstrated in a laboratory testing environement.
