Isolated power systems: knowledge and technology sharing: distributed generation, grid and demand management (IS-POWER)
Start date: Oct 9, 2007, End date: Apr 8, 2010 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Social pressures, linked to protection of natural resources and environment, hinder the expansion of electricity grids and the installation of conventional electrical generation units in isolated power systems. Those systems can be defined as systems not interconnected with other neighbouring systems by tine lines and restricted to use their own resources for maintaining synchronous operation.Comprehensive solutions should be established based on efficient integration of renewable energies and distributed generation in power grids, new technologies and new regulatory schemes. Specific Support Actions and knowledge sharing are appropriate to overcome these threatens and new technologies take advantage of the natural resources available in these territories. Based on cooperation, this project suggests developing technical and regulatory frameworks to improve the performance of these systems (reliability, supply guaranty) and enable the integration of renewable energies and other distributed generation.
