 ONGOING 
In order to unlock the full potential of Europe’s offshore resources, network infrastructure is urgently required, linking off-shore wind parks and on-shore grids in different countries. HVDC technology is envisaged but the deployment of meshed HVDC offshore grids is currently hindered by the high cost of converter technology, lack of experience with protection systems and fault clearance componen ...

The project SmartNet aims at providing architectures for optimized interaction between TSOs and DSOs in managing the exchange of information for monitoring and for the acquisition of ancillary services (reserve and balancing, voltage regulation, congestion management) both at national level and in a cross-border context. Local needs for ancillary services in distribution systems are supposed to co ...

Demonstration of coordinated offshore wind farm connection solutions

Start date: Dec 31, 2009, End date: Dec 30, 2018,

The Krieger’s Flak Combined Grid Solution project is a joint Danish-German project managed by the two Transmission System Operators 50Hertz Transmission, Germany and Energinet.dk, Denmark. It is a project to combine the connection of offshore plants at Kriegers Flak with interconnections between Denmark and Germany.The traditional way to connect offshore wind power plants is to use national, radia ...

"A group of eight Transmission System Operators with a generator company, manufacturers and research organisations, propose 5 demonstration projects to remove, in 4 years, several barriers which prevent large-scale penetration of renewable electricity production in the European transmission network. The full scale demonstrations led by industry aim at proving the benefits of novel technologies cou ...

Europe’s vast coast line harbours a huge potential resource of ocean energy to be exploited as a renewable electricity source contributing towards the 2020 targets and beyond. The ocean is a complex working environment, relatively little is known about it and it is widely used by others, such as fishing, shipping and recreation. However, the prize for introducing ocean energy generation is high, e ...

"Power system reliability management means to take decisions under increasing uncertainty (for instance, related to renewable generation). It aims to maintain power system performance at a desired level, while minimizing the socio-economic costs of keeping the power system at that performance level. Seven TSOs (Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Iceland, Norway), together with ele ...

The key objective of the EcoGrid EU project is to demonstrate efficient operation of a distribution power system with high penetration of many and variable renewable energy resources. The demonstration will take place on the Danish island Bornholm with more than 50 % of electricity consumption from renewable energy production.A real-time market concept will be developed to give small end-users of ...

SmartGrids ERA-NET (SMARTGRIDS ERA-NET)

Start date: Sep 1, 2008, End date: Feb 28, 2014,

SmartGrids ERA-NET develops transnational research activities to speed up the development of a Smart European Electrical Infrastructure. A necessity for a successful realisation of the European Action Plan “Energy Policy for Europe”. This will change the European electricity supply with strong consumer response, large scale supplies of renewable electricity and high levels of distributed generati ...

A group of 6 Transmission System Operators (Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany The Netherlands and Spain) with 2 generator companies, 5 manufacturers and research organisations, propose 6 demonstration projects to remove, in 3 years, several barriers which prevent the electric system from welcoming more wind electricity, and wind electricity from contributing more to the electric system. The full s ...

 FINISHED 
The integration of wind generation into power systems is affected by uncertainties in the forecasting of expected power output. Misestimating of meteorological conditions or large forecasting errors (phase errors, near cut-off speeds etc), are very costly for infrastructures (i.e. unexpected loads on turbines) and reduce the value of wind energy for end-users. The state of the art in wind power fo ...
