DER-IREC 22@Microgrid

Start and end dates: 
January, 2009 to December, 2011
Prevailing Stage of Development: 
Research & Development
Brief description and/or other information regarding the project: 
DER - IREC 22 @ MICROGRID is a research project focused to create products and services around Distributed Energy Resources (DER) and EV. The main goal is to build a platform where research could be done in order to integrate all those components into a new system of energy supply. This platform will integrate in a micro grid a set of existing DERs: conventional micro generation technologies (diesel or natural gas engines). emerging technologies (micro turbines and energy storage devices). and renewable technologies (small wind turbines or solar generators). The project will identify one or more micro grid models joining (1) electric power system as energy player. (2) power electronics technology as DER integration facilitator. and (3) information and communication technologies as new ways of operation and control facilitator.
