Congestion forecast tool
We are developing a congestion forecast tool for the distribution system operators (DSOs) in order to assist them in forecasting voltage issues and network congestion. The tool also includes development of different visualization features which allows DSOs in identifying the exact location and severity of congestion.
New solutions for monitoring the grid
UNITED-GRID will provide an advanced measurement solution to help DSOs improve the operation of their grid. The solution is based on low voltage sensors and is being tested at three demo sites in three different countries.
The developed software framework is made using Smart State Technologys open platform concept, which will allow third-party developers to experiment, develop new algorithms, test and validate them using live streaming-data from the grid.
Register for our next webinar
The next UNITED-GRID webinar will take place on 25 March 13.00-14.30 CET. We will discuss future steps for DSOs and present interesting results and solutions from the project.
Optimising the grid in real-time
UNITED-GRID provides pathways for the future
Most distribution system operators (DSOs) are well aware that there will be changes in the grid. A major risk in this transformation is to end up with outdated and inflexible technical solutions. UNITED-GRID will be a guide and companion to DSOs in finding possible pathways for them to implement in smart grids, based on technical and regulatory factors as well as on their own, existing infrastructure.
We will offer innovative solutions for tomorrow’s intelligent grids, not in the distant future but as soon they are needed. The project will deliver an advanced distribution management system, ADMS, with tools and services that have commercial and technical potential to support new business models and technical system changes. At the end of the project technical solutions as well as new and accepted business models will be made available.

This report presents the work of collecting near future scenarios (2025-2035) influencing the need and design of future intelligent distribution grids for different European markets: France, Netherlands and Sweden. The capabilities required by the DSOs to fulfil their obligations and requirements in the scenarios are elaborated.
This report contains an analysis of cyber-security related problems and Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) as a viable solution for smart grids, especially in relation to the data streaming paradigm, which is a potential candidate to be the main data processing and handling mechanism in the next-generation power grid systems.
This report gives an overview of the latest developments in the European regulatory framework around energy and climate goals, electricity networks, smart grids, data protection and digitalisation based on literature study of the relevant regulatory documents.
Two workshops / conferences were organized within the scope of cyber security within UNITED-GRID. The workshop included several presentations, which touched security and state of the art data analysis paradigms such as data streaming, as well as a demonstration. The presentations were given by both members of the UNITED-GRID consortium as well as by other researchers from Chalmers University ot Technology, Sweden.
