Details of the project
||Advanced solutions for the Spanish Electrical Grid towards 2025: Sub-project 1: Power Electronics Applications
||January 2010 - December 2010
||Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación
||Red Eléctrica de España (líder subproyecto), Ingeteam Technology, Acciona Energía, Acciona Windpower, Grupo Isastur, ZIV, Greenpower, AICIA, Univ. Oviedo, UPM, Univ. Polit. Cartagena
||*Power Electronics and Control Systems
*Steady-state: load flows, analysis of power system constraints, optimal load flows, voltage control ancilliary service,short-circuits, protections in transmission and ditribution networks
||The main objective of this sub-project is to accelerate the development of Power Electronics within the Spanish industry gathering together a research team consisting of private companies and research institutions (from the public and private sectors). This team will carry out coordinated research and viability studies together with promotion activities in order back the advance of the Spanish Electricity Sector towards the knowledge fortier of Power Electronics applied to electrical grid control. The participation of Universidad Pontificia Comillas in this sub-project will focus on the study of High Voltage DC transmission systems (HVDC) based on Voltage Source Converters (HVDC-VSC). The work to be carried out will consist, mainly, on (a) a state-of-the-art review of this technology, (b) the analysis and development of models to be included in steady-state and dynamic analysis of the Spanish Grid and (c) the detailed analysis of possible applications of this technology in future developments of the Spanish Grid.
This project is partially funded by the Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación and co-funded by FEDER as a Singular and Strategic Project. More information.
