Electric distribution grid identification based on complex network theory using GIS information and limited grid monitoring and smart metering

Project description

Advanced methodology aids in monitoring low-voltage distribution grids

The share of renewable energy sources in the energy mix is rapidly growing, but a great part of them is being integrated into low-voltage distribution grids. Unlike high-voltage distribution networks, accurate information regarding the topology of low-voltage distribution networks is scant. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the GridTIMES project proposes a methodology based on complex network theory that utilises measurement data from metering infrastructures, grid monitoring data, end-user smart meter data and geographic information system data to enhance understanding of low-voltage distribution network topologies. Project methodology could also aid distribution system operators in detecting power losses and in retaining sustainable grid operation and resiliency.
