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.
The Management Committee of the ELECTRA Integrated Research Programme is pleased to announce the seventh and final call for applications for smart grid researcher exchanges. Applications from both industrial organisations and research organisations are welcome. For detailed information on call topics and application procedure click the "Mobility" Tab. Also, if you are attending ISGT Europe'17 then you will have opportunity to hear first-hand accounts of the results from recently completed ELECTRA REX Exchanges.
The fourth ELECTRA REX workshop was recently held as part of the ISGT Europe'17 conference programme in Turin. The event attracted around forty delegates, who came to hear the results of six recent exchanges involving researchers from Europe and South America. The presentations by the recipients of ELECTRA REX mobility awards highlighted interesting results from their collaborative research on advancing various aspects of the Web of Cells concept. These initiated some interesting discussion, and stimulated further interest in the current and final call for applications of the ELECTRA REX programme, ELECTRA REX Call 7– follow the link to apply.
Workshop participants heard first-hand accounts from the researchers of the value of their exchanges to prestigious laboratories
