Power System Control


Team Leader: Marco Cupelli



The H2020 RESERVE project started in September 2016. In the project we are performing and field-testing newly developed techniques that will enable a stable supply with 100% renewable resources. This ambitious but achievable goal starts with the specification of the required components and functions that future automation systems must have for frequency and voltage control in a system with 100% RES.

DC-Direkt is concerned with the technical and economic study of Medium-Voltage DC systems (MVDC) at the distribution network level, in particular for industrial installations, ship networks as well as for connection of wind power plants. In addition to increasing system efficiency and reliability, due to the stronger meshing of the subcomponents in a DC bus, the main focus is the reduction of the total cost, by eliminating or simplifying conversion components.

IN2RAIL – Innovative Intelligent Rail

A significant increase in traffic demand for both passengers and freight is expected in the near future. This will require a substantial improvement of the transport system infrastructure and of the quality of service provided to the customers. In this context, current European policies are pushing for a shift of the medium distance transport mode towards railway systems, because of their lower environmental impact and their better efficiency and safety with respect to other transport modes.
