Webinar – Contribution of the Osmose project to the enhancement of the IEC61850 standard: Improvement of the engineering process and storage data modeling

28 January 2022 - 13:00 - ISGAN Academy Webinars invites you to discover the contribution of the Osmose project to the enhancement of the IEC61850 standard: Improvement of the engineering process and storage data modeling

IEC standards are essential to ensure a successful industrial uptake of innovative smart grid solutions, however further research and innovation are requested in order to develop standardized descriptions of innovative components.

This webinar introduces the activities performed in the OSMOSE project regarding the engineering process and the functional tests performed on a dedicated demonstrator, based on the international standard IEC 61850.  It addresses in particular the following questions aspects:

  • Engineering process: configuration of the system, having devices from different manufacturers
  • Results of functional tests: validation of the system configuration.

Join the webinar: 2022-01-28 at h 13:00 CET (UTC+1)

Webinar – Optimizing the value of storage in power systems and electricity markets – the Smart4RES project

9 December 2021 - 12:00 CET - ISGAN Academy Webinars invites you to discover how optimize the value of storage in power systems and electricity markets - the Smart4RES project

ISGAN Academy invites to to the fifth episode of the Smart4RES webinar series. The webinar will provide an industrial view on the problematic and role of storage and a discussion on utilities needs and expectation through addressing the different Smart4RES use cases. The webinar will also focus on the joint optimization and dispatch of RES power plants and storage topic through different angles.
Finally, a presentation of the work done by ICCS will focus on the dispatch of RES and storage in isolated power systems including storage ancillary services and frequency security.

Webinar – Dynamic Virtual Power Plant to combine flexibilities of dispatchable and non-dispatchable RES – the POSYTYF project

18 November 2021 - 15:00 CET - ISGAN Academy Webinars invites you to discover the Dynamic Virtual Power Plant (DVPP) concept under development by the POSYTYF project.

This webinar introduces the Dynamic Virtual Power Plant (DVPP) concept under development by the European Commission funded project POSYTYF, that aims to facilitate Renewable Energy Sources (RES) integration into the electrical network. After an overall project presentation, the webinar will introduce the proposed DVPP concept and detail the first project deliverable: the definition and specification of DVPP scenarios.

More info on https://posytyf-h2020.eu/

Join the webinar: 2021-11-18 at h 15:00 CET (UTC+1)

Key messages

  1. The new DVPP concept fully integrates the dynamic aspects at all levels: locally (for each RES generator), globally (for grid ancillary services and interaction with other neighbour elements of the grid) and economically (for internal optimal dispatch and participation to electricity markets)
  2. A DVPP is a set of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) along with a set of control and operation procedures. This means methodologies for:
    • choosing the participating RES, optimal and continuous operation as a whole (especially in case of loss of natural resources – e.g., wind, sun – on a part of the DVPP),
    • regulation (in the dynamic sense) to ensure local objectives for each generator,
    • participation to ancillary services of the DVPP as a unit and to diminish negative effects of interaction with neighbour dynamics elements of the power system,
    • integration in both actual power systems scenarios (with mixed classic and power electronics-based generation) and future ones with high degree of RES penetration.

Intended audience

  • Power system engineers, from students to senior experts.

Speakers Bio

Bogdan Marinescu was born in 1969 in Bucharest, Romania. He received the Engineering degree from the Polytechnical Institute of Bucharest in 1992, the PhD from Université Paris Sud-Orsay, France in 1997 and the “Habilitation à diriger des recherches” from Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan, France in 2010. He is currently a Professor in Ecole Centrale Nantes and LS2N laboratory where he is the Head of the chair “Analysis and control of power grids”  (2014-2024) and the Coordinator of the European project POSYTYF (Research & Innovation Action, 2020-2023). In the first part of his carrier, he was active in R&D divisions of industry (EDF and RTE) and as a part-time professor (especially from 2006 to 2012 in Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan). His main fields of interest are the theory and applications of linear systems, robust control and power systems engineering.

Oriol Gomis-Bellmunt received the degree in industrial engineering from the School of Industrial Engineering of Barcelona (ETSEIB), Technical University of Catalonia (UPC), Barcelona, Spain, in 2001 and the doctoral degree in electrical engineering from the UPC in 2007. In 1999, he joined Engitrol SL where he worked as Project Engineer in the automation and control industry. Since 2004, he has been with the Electrical Engineering Department of the UPC where he is Professor and participates in the CITCEA-UPC Research Group. He is involved in a number of research projects in national and international consortiums (medium-long term research oriented) and technology transfer projects with several manufacturers, operators and developers worldwide (short-term research and practical application). His research interests are focused on the understanding of modern power systems, based on power electronics (HVDC, FACTS, energy storage and renewables) and grid integration of renewable energy, especially onshore and offshore wind and solar photovoltaics. Since 2020, he is an ICREA Academia researcher. Since 2021, he is IEEE Fellow.

Carlos Collados-Rodriguez received the Bachelor’s degree in Energy Engineering and the Master’s degree in Industrial Engineering from the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC), Barcelona, Spain, in 2014 and 2017 respectively.

Webinar: The need to model coupled energy networks to transition to a decarbonized future

The coordination between planners and operators of coupled energy systems will allow the further integration of renewable energy sources in the electricity network by storing energy in fuel form over long periods of time using power-to-gas, the recovery and more efficient use of heat, and the decarbonization of industrial processes and transportation modes that can’t be electrified. Energy networks, such as electricity grids and natural gas pipeline networks, have traditionally been planned and operated independently. In order to enhance the integration and coordination of different energy networks, they must be planned and operated in coupled ways. Different energy networks have historically been and are still modelled by different tools.

27 Feb 2020 @ 14:00 CET

Duration: 1h

In this webinar it will discuss the need to model coupled energy systems in a single framework and we will introduce encoord’s Scenario Analysis Interface for Energy Systems (SAInt), a software application to model, plan, and operate coupled energy networks.
