INTERPLAN project featured in DERlab’s Public Activity Report 2018-2020 “The Pan-European Smart Grid: Innovative Tools and Demonstration Activities for Future Grid Planning and Operation”, presenting the activities of DERlab and its members in the form of international networking and knowledge exchange on the topic of smart grids operation, planning and control strategies.
This Activity Report provides an overview of cutting-edge advances in the smart grid and DER domain from over 30 member institutes. Furthermore presented in the report is a selection of EU-funded and national research efforts towards increased share of DER. Among these projects is INTERPLAN, developing an integrated network operation planning tool, consisting of a set of tools for the operation planning of the Pan-European network, and addressing a significant number of system operation planning challenges of the current and the future 2030+ EU power grid, from the perspective of the transmission system, the distribution system, and with a particular focus on the transmission-distribution interface.
Read more about the project’s advancements, including the operation planning tool developments, the grid clustering and equivalenting method, the role of the Opsim co-simulation tool in the project and interesting interviews with INTERPLAN’s project coordinator Giorgio Graditi (ENEA) and technical coordinator Helfried Brunner (AIT).
