Reliability and Control


  • Integration of EHV underground cables
  • Interaction of onshore/offshore HV grids
  • Grid-code compliance
  • HVAC/HVDC interplay
  • Interplay of transmission and active distribution systems
  • Model-supported control and operations

Models, Simulation, Analytics

  • Numerical EMT and RMS models, also for Power Electronics
  • Model and system identification
  • Co-Simulation EMT/RMS and ICT/RMS
  • Probabilistic methods (Monte-Carlo, etc.)
  • Control engineering methods: Non-linear systems, fuzzy sets,
    control topologies, model-predictive control
  • Optimization
  • Machine learning
  • Sensitivity/behavioral analysis

ICT, Algorithms

  • Real-time automation protocols
  • PMU and other big data for vulnerability assessment
  • Cyber-security for smart grids

Laboratory, Experiments, Metrology

  • Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation, RTDS
  • Controller behavior assessment
  • Control design performance testing
