Solutions for intelligent distribution grids

UNITED-GRID aims to secure and optimise operation of the future intelligent distribution networks. 


We are in the energy transition phase, where increasing amounts of renewable energy sources and new loads such as heat-pumps and electrical cars are being connected to the distribution systems. This results in a number of challenges for distribution system operators, including voltage variations, network congestion and undesirable relay operations.


The project will provide integrated cyber-physical solutions and exploit the opportunities provided by the new actors and technologies.
The core deliverable is the UNITED-GRID tool-box that could be “plugged in” to the existing Distribution Management System (DMS) via a cross-platform for advanced energy management, grid-level control and protection. This cross-platform allows interoperability from inverter-based Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) up to the distribution grid at the low and medium voltage levels, thus going beyond the state-of-the-art to optimise operation of the grid with real-time control solutions in a high level of automation and cyber-physical security.
