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.

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. He joined CITCEA-UPC research group in 2013, where he is currently pursuing the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering. His research interests include power converters, HVDC systems, grid integration of renewable energy and power system analysis, especially in power-electronics-dominated power systems.
