Towards Intelligent DC-based hybrid Grids Optimizing the network performance

Project description

Novel technologies and tools are directing attention to improved power grid architectures

Alternating current (AC) has dominated power grids historically, in part because conventional generators naturally output AC, and the devices at the end of the line are designed for AC input. Renewable energy sources are increasingly replacing generators, and direct current (DC) technologies such as electric vehicles and energy storage systems are growing. Therefore, it makes more and more sense to begin switching to more efficient, reliable and sustainable DC-related technologies. The EU-funded TIGON project is developing a comprehensive portfolio of power electronics, management software and tools supporting optimised and intelligent DC-based hybrid grids. Outcomes will be demonstrated in a variety of applications including the railway sector.
