Abstract

The Center for Electric Power and Energy (CEE) at DTU Elektro focuses on research and teaching within the present and the future energy system, aiming at a reliable, cost-efficient and sustainable energy system based on renewable energy. In such way is addressed one of the major and most important challenges of our modern society. The ongoing transformation of the energy system is triggered by technology development and specific energy strategies in Denmark. CEE is supporting the development of a range of new technologies and solutions as well as the underlying new knowledge, theory and methods. Several keywords are characterizing the major trends, one of which is ‘smart energy’, mainly covering covers integrating multiple infrastructures (electricity, heat, gas, transport etc.) and the technologies to support this trend including automation, ICT and marked aspects. Contrary to traditional operation of a power system, stability in the future system has now to be based on smaller, decentralized units. This covers not only generating units, but also includes the consumer side, where demand control contributes to support the power system. Here, technologies like energy storage, electric vehicles and smart buildings play an important role. Another research area is within electric power networks, where renewable generation like large scale integration of wind power is a major challenge. Integration of the wind and solar power takes place at different voltage levels in the system and the solutions to be found need to take into consideration both technical and economic/environmental aspects. Finally, the components at generation, transmission and distribution level must be suitable for this alternative powers system without any risk for reduced reliability or life time. CEE is focusing on research and teaching in mentioned areas in order to support the considerable changes in the electrical grid towards much more dynamic operation of the power system in interaction with other energy infrastructures.
