Upgrading Conventional Distribution Grid Control Centers to Be Future-Proof, Dynamic Control Centers

Project DynaGridCenter

 

The objective of Upgrading Conventional Distribution Grid Control Centers to Be Future-Proof, Dynamic Control Centers is the development of a novel dynamic grid control system demonstrator that runs AC, DC and UHV transmission grids reliably and will include upgraded functions. A new, correspondingly defined dynamic grid control center will be able to capitalize on all of the advantages of the new grid components effectively and optimally with the target of injecting 100 % renewable power. Along with monitoring the purely functional performance of secondary equipment, aspects of information security such as individual components’ exchange of information will be analyzed and appropriate protective measures will be integrated. Building on advanced communications mechanisms compliant with IEC 61850 and IEC 61970, suitable security mechanisms will be tested and applied in compliance with IEC 62351.
