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.

Advanced measurement

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.
