October 2018 - December 2018

Funding entity Iberdrola Distribución Eléctrica S.A.U

The objective of this project is designing and simulating non-conventional electrification solutions to improve supply in a distribution network when there are faults in the power lines. In the project, alternatives based on micro-grids are proposed to improve reliability and use renewable sources. The main components are photovoltaics, storage and diesel power units. The solutions are found with an exhaustive search, being this approach feasible for small scale networks.

    Research topics:
  • Smart grids
  • Green energy integration
  • Planning and operation of DER
  • Steady-state: load flows, analysis of power system constraints, optimal load flows, voltage control ancilliary service,short-circuits, protections in transmission and ditribution networks
