Hybrid power distribution networks

What does it solve?

Power grids are the backbone of the electricity system and must be expanded and modernized to adapt to the energy transition, which has implications such as fluctuating and distributed generation or new infrastructures for vehicle charging, among others. The flexibility of the grid, which until now relied mainly on fossil fuels and hydroelectric power, will come to depend on battery storage systems or making use of energy carriers such as hydrogen or ammonia; demand response; and bioenergy. In addition, the network power will not have a single direction and will be transformed into a bidirectional flow.

Advantages and benefits

At ITA, we face the challenges of hybrid electrical distribution networks from our experience in the following fields sustainable power systemsThe development of intelligent, high-efficiency and low-noise systems, including electrical storage and power electronics, allows us to support companies from the initial design stages through the development of models and digital cufflinksto prototyping and experimental testing in relevant environments.

Our Zero Emissions laboratory allows you to operate in on-grid and island mode, to evaluate transitions between modes and black-start, and to analyze the effect of harmonics on the grid when operating in island mode. It has renewable sources (photovoltaic and wind), storage systems (batteries and hydrogen) and load emulators, for the definition and evaluation of control strategies for energy management (EMS). Our experience in modeling dynamic and transient scale power inverters is the basis for analyzing and defining control strategies for grid stability, which can be experimentally validated, even for combined control of DC and AC grids.
