The UNITED-GRID project has now been up and running for half a year and the team had a meeting in Eindhoven, Netherlands, to sum up the results so far.
– I would say the overall project has been progressing well according to plan in terms of activities in work packages that have been started. In some particular tasks, the progress has been even ahead of the plan, which is great, says the project leader Tuan Le at Chalmers University in Gothenburg, Sweden.
One of the objectives is to develop methods for optimizing the operation of the future grids, such as handling advanced forecasting systems. A lot of distribution grid data has to be collected from the Distribution System Operators (DSO:s) by Ankur Srivastava, PhD student at Chalmers.
– This data would be used for running simulations for the developed algorithms and tools in UNITED-GRID and as well develop some kind of database for future research work.
Another partner in the project, Smart State Technology, has developed a sensor-system, where the frame-work has an open character. That allows researchers, PhD students and third party developers to implement and deploy their own grid algorithms on the measurement-system in a secure and reliable way.
– The biggest challenge for us is to create an affordable advanced measurement solution from which developers will benefit and consequently create new solutions to enable the energy transition, says Omar Mansour, director at Smart State Technology.
Using this tool, developers can experiment and create new and emerging algorithms using real data from the field, without the need for expensive equipment and data simulation tools.
In this final online event of UNITED-GRID, we present the developed solutions for advanced forecast, congestion management, real-time monitoring, control and protection for future intelligent distribution grids.
In this webinar three different distribution system operators explain how they include innovative grid modernization tools and new grid operator responsibilities in their own daily business as a necessary step to tackle future challenges.
Technologies developed in recent years for the intelligent distribution grids are becoming more connected and hence vulnerable to cyberattacks.
In this webinar you will see a live demonstration by Smart State Technology over their advanced measurement Sensor, Open Platform and Analytics dashboards installed at Enexis, Strijp-S, in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
In this webinar, that was held on 3 November 2020, we demonstrate the UNITED-GRID toolbox. It has a unique dual approach, that will help DSOs to better manage their grid with advanced automized solutions and local supervision.
UNITED-GRID develops a toolbox and an open cross-platform, with a unique dual approach, that will help Distribution System Operators (DSOs) to better manage their grid with advanced automized solutions and local supervision.

Parts of the UNITED-GRID team met in Paris on March 5th to discuss exploitable results of the project.
Research on cybersecurity for smart grids is crucial to ensure the safe operation of the power grid and to protect the privacy of consumers.
A workshop was arranged by UNITED-GRID on 2 December to give a better understanding of needs and worries for cyber security for the smart grid.
Lucile Lemius, ATOS Worldgrid, explains the work with the UNITED-GRID tool-box and cross-platform integration for demonstrator sites.
This film about the project explains how DSOs can benefit from the solutions that can be plugged in to existing systems.
