Months of entry
Countries all around the world are seeking to make systems more energy efficient and create a Smart Grid that integrates renewable energy sources. The worldwide action towards low carbon emissions and renewable energy sources has led to an urgent need for efficient electric vehicles and wind, wave and solar power generation systems. This project will develop advanced modelling techniques for Smart Grid Systems – which are key to integrating renewable energy sources into the grid because of their time-varying nature. This will include new mathematical models and investigation of demand-side management techniques and power electronic control and their impact on network stability.
