3 new H2020 project granted

3 new H2020 project have been granted to professors from our Department.

Congratulations to project leaders prof. Pandzic and prof. Capuder on this great achievement.

1.       FAcilitating Regional CROSS-border Electricity Transmission through Innovation – FARCROSS

(48 months, 165k Eur)
The project will promote state-of-the-art technologies to enhance the exploitation/capacity/efficiency of transmission grid assets, either on the generation or the transmission level. The hardware and software solutions will increase grid observability to facilitate system operations at a regional level, exploit the full potential of transmission corridors for increased electricity flows that will facilitate transition to flowbased regional market coupling, consider cross-border connections and their specific ICT and grid infrastructure, planning to use a wide-area protection approach to ensure the safe integration of renewable energy sources into the grid, mitigate disturbances, increase power system stability.

2.       A novel smart grid architecture that facilitates high RES penetration through innovative markets towards efficient interaction between advanced electricity grid management and intelligent stakeholders – FLEXGRID

(36 months, 244k Eur)
FLEXGRID project proposes a holistic future smart grid architecture able to accommodate high RES penetration through the advancement, interaction and integration of: i) innovative models that are based on recent advances in game theory in order to quantify and highly improve the trade-off between the various future energy markets’ requirements and guarantee the “fairness” of the equilibrium points that energy markets reach, ii) grid system models that use optimization theory to achieve more efficient market clearing and Optimal Power Flow algorithms, and iii) innovative Business Models through the use of artificial intelligence, which can be exploited by modern Energy Service Providers and RES Producers.

3.       Interoperable solutions for implementing holistic FLEXIbility services in the distribution GRIDFLEXIGRID

(48 months, 448k Eur)
FLEXIGRID project proposes to improve the distribution grid operation making it more flexible, reliable and cost-efficient, through the development of 4 hardware and 4 software solutions. Four demo sites will be used to upgrade FLEXIGRID solutions towards TRL8: a rural and peri-urban network in Spain with a RES share of 39%; a resort in the Greek Island of Thasos able to integrate 10% of RES; an urban grid in the city of Zagreb with congested areas, and an isolated valley in the South-Tyrol region of Italy with more than 50% of hydroelectric energy.

četvrtak 11.12.2014. u 12 h u Sivoj vijećnici održati će se predavanje u sklopu IEEE Odjela za elektroenergetiku i IEEE Odjela za industrijske primjene:

"Distribuirana energetska skladišta u prijenosnoj elektroenergetskoj mreži."

Predavanje će održati doc. dr. sc. Hrvoje Pandžić.


Sažetak predavanja:

Osnovna paradigma elektroenergetskog sustava od njegovog začetka je da proizvodnja slijedi potrošnju električne energije. Međutim, integracijom značajnih količina obnovljivih izvora, javljaju se dva velika problema:

1.       Vjetroelektrane i solarne elektrane su neupravljive, njihova proizvodnja je promjenjiva, te stoga nisu u mogućnosti usklađivati proizvodnju s potrošnjom u sustavu.

2.       Pogodne lokacije vjetroelektrana najčešće su udaljene od centara potrošnje i nalaze se u slabo razvijenom dijelu sustava. Stoga se javljaju problemi zagušenja prilikom prijenosa električne energije, što pak može uzrokovati kaskadne ispade sustava.

Kao rješenje ovih problema predlaže se integracija distribuiranih spremišta energije u prijenosnu mrežu. Na predavanju će se prezentirati rezultati istraživanja određivanja optimalnih lokacija i parametara energetskih spremišta u prijenosnoj mreži. Također će se prezentirati i diskutirati uloga energetskih skladišta kao imovina Operatora Prijenosnog Sustava. Naime, energetska skladišta istovjetna su prijenosnim vodovima, uz razliku što prenose energiju u vremenu umjesto u prostoru. Stoga se korištenje tih skladišta može naplaćivati na isti način kao i korištenje prijenosnih vodova.
