Third Consortium meeting
This year a virtual Consortium meeting have been organized without affecting the initial schedule. In particular, the current progress of the project was discussed and our colleagues presented a summary of the technical work developed since the last meeting. Since this is the 3rd year of the project, there are already very interesting contributions.
The Green Talks
GPM organized a series of Webinars where several experts discuss about the opportunities and challenges of renewable energy integration. Our colleagues Oriol Gomis (UPC), Carlos Pacheco and Luis Serrano (GPM) participated in a session called “PPC, Energy Management System & Dynamic Simulations” where they discussed about topics related to PVTOOL.
Gustavo Pinares presented a conference paper at the Power Systems Computation Conference 2020. The presentation was online due to the current COVID-19 outbreak. He presented a independent channel design approach for stability analysis of VSC-connected systems. Gustavo had a different and interesting experiencience attending his first online conference.
Second Consortium meeting
Location: GPM, Barcelona, Spain
GPM hosted the second Consortium meeting of the project. The current and future tasks were discussed, Jose Montero and Gustavo Pinares presented their current research work. Also, future publications were discussed as potential collaborations among the project members.
Location: Lisbon, Portugal
Gustavo Pinares presented a conference paper in the IEEE 45th Annual Conference of the Industrial Electronics Society where he explained an methodology to analysed stability in VSC-connected systems using impedance-based tools.
Solar Integration Workshop 2019
Location: Dublin, Ireland
Jose Montero presented a conference paper in the Solar Integration Workshop about potential interactions in large-PV power plants when the Power Plant Controller speed is modified and considering impact of communication delays.
Intersolar Europe 2019
Location: Munich, Germany
GPM has attented the Intersolar Europe conference where they explained the objectives and activities of the project to several members of the solar industry
First Consortium meeting
Location: UPC, Barcelona, Spain
The members of the consortium (UPC, GPM and Chalmers) organised the first face-to-face where the researchers involved in the project presented their scientific background and the ongoing tasks.
The members of the consortium (UPC, GPM and Chalmers) organised a first online meeting of the project to review the objectives, work package content and decide the next steps based on the proposal.
