GloudGrid

Start and end dates: 
March, 2016 to March, 2019
Prevailing Stage of Development: 
Research & Development
Brief description and/or other information regarding the project: 
In the CloudGrid project, R&D on smart grid solutions will be focusing on three main areas: - System stability - Ancillary services & energy management - Converter interoperability The method used in the CloudGrid project to improve the research is to increase the cooperation between the part-ners based on an interconnection between smart grid labs. The establishment of this transnational smart grid cloud shall facilitate possibilities to validate research result in dif-ferent laboratory environment, in this way the project will be able to provide solutions with a broader level of validation and suitable for a wider range of equipment. The goal of the CloudGrid project is to provide recommenda-tions and strategies to meet the challenges of the future power system, to facilitate larger amount of intermittent renewable generation together with less nuclear production while providing a secure and reliable electrical power supply.
