Secure Operation of Sustainable Power Systems

Project Details


Funded by the Danish Council for strategic research (DSF)
The project period spans four years, starting in January 2012. The total budget for the project is approximately 30.2 million DKK, which covers among others the funding of 5 PhD and 3 PostDoc positions. The project is managed by prof. Jacob Østergaard, head of Centre for Electric Technology.

The SOSPO project focuses on a critical, difficult and not yet treated problem regarding how secure operation of future sustainable power systems (based on wind and solar energy) can be ensured.

The research in the SOSPO project focuses on methods that enable system stability and security assessment in real-time and on methods for automatically determining control actions that regain system security when an insecure operation has been detected.
