Smart Energy Networks

Smart Energy Networks

Energy distribution system such as electrical power systems are facing one of the largest technological changes ever. Coming from a bottom-down structure based on centralized power plants today more and more small units feed into the system at different locations. Many individual and different micro generators and storage units have to be combined to contribute to system stability.

The following are aims of this research group:

  • Development of systems and components for high-voltage direct current transmission and high-voltage direct current grids
  • System integration of renewable energy converters and storage devices
  • Monitoring and optimizing smart grids
