High Power, high Reliability offshore wind technology (HIPRWIND)

Start date: Nov 1, 2010, End date: Jun 30, 2015,

The aim of the HiPRwind project is to develop and test new solutions for very large offshore wind turbines at an industrial scale. The project addresses critical issues of offshore WT technology such as extreme reliability, remote maintenance and grid integration with particular emphasis on floating wind turbines, where weight and size limitations of onshore designs can be overcome.HiPRWind will t ...

 FINISHED 
Power transmission in Europe is entering a period of significant renewal and technological change because the electrical transmission grids face increases in new and variable energy sources, especially from large scale wind power generators. They therefore face future challenges of operation and control. Changes happening in the process industries will also have an impact on electrical supply beca ...

Price-based Control of Electrical Power Systems (E-PRICE)

Start date: Feb 1, 2010, End date: May 31, 2013,

The EU electric power system experiences a fundamental change in the quasi-monopolistic, top-down oriented, stable, and reasonable predictable arrangements of the past. It now spans continents, has hundreds of millions consumers and hundreds of thousands of producers, from nuclear power plants to privately-owned and operated badly predictable renewables such as solar cells, wind and microturbines ...

Future INternet for Smart ENergY (FINSENY)

Start date: Apr 1, 2011, End date: Apr 30, 2013,

The energy sector has entered a period of major change which will continue for many years to come. The increasing proportion of electricity from renewable sources means that the architecture of the energy grid will have to support the distributed, in addition to the centralised, generation of energy and to adapt to a highly volatile supply e.g. from wind and solar generators. From the consumption ...

Society is increasingly dependent on the proper functioning of the electric power system, which in turn supports most other critical infrastructures: water and sewage systems; telecommunications, internet and computing services; air traffic, railroads and other transportation. Many of these other infrastructures are able to operate without power for shorter periods of time, but larger power outage ...
