National Smart Grid Laboratory & Demonstration Platform

Tildelt: kr 28,6 mill.

Med støtte fra Forskningsrådet, har NTNU og SINTEF bygget et nasjonalt Smart Grid laboratorium i Trondheim. Laboratoriet er systemorientert dvs. velegnet for å teste og verifisere samspill mellom komponenter og delsystemer og kan tilby en moderne laboratorieinfrastruktur for forskning, demonstrasjon, verifikasjon, testing og undervisning. Laboratoriet støtter en rekke områder og use case fra storskala transmisjon til lokal distribusjon og smarte hjem. Konsept: Et viktig element i laboratoriekonseptet er mulighetene til å integrere sanntidssimulerte kraftsystem med fysiske modellkraftsystemer (Hardware in the loop/ Power hardware in the loop) med ytelser opp til 200 kVA og spenningsnivå opp til 400 V AC or 700 V DC. Frekvensområdet som dekkes er opp til 5 kHz.

The main benefits from Smart Grids are expected to be systemic in nature as they will arise from the combination of technological, regulatory, economic and behavioural changes. Such complex systems call for cooperation between experts from several differe nt domains (e.g. power engineering, telematics, ICT, economics etc.) to obtain interoperable, safe, secure and cost effective solutions. The Use Case Methodology represents the current state of the art in engineering of such complex systems. A Use Case is defined as a specific sequence of actions or functions that a system can perform, interacting with individual or multiple end-users of the system to achieve certain objectives. Smart charging of an Electric Vehicle (EV) or Smart Meter Reading are example s of high level Use Cases. Immature and risky use cases are best studied and tested in laboratories. More mature Use Cases and those which include the behaviour or human response of customers need to be tested in "living labs" like Demo Norway. Most enabl ing technologies required in foreseeable Use Cases are known, but the new challenge of Smart grid projects is their integration. Advancing the progress on interoperability and integration of new grid components in the Norwegian Power System requires a lab oratory infrastructure of national scale. This is today not available in Norway. For supporting Smart grid development and facilitating successful technology deployment, access to both real and laboratory power systems are needed in order to design, devel op and test smart grid Use Cases and technologies. The vision of this proposal is to create the national laboratory platform needed for that purpose. The main R&D challenges supported by the Laboratory Infrastructure are: 1) Development of smart grid Use Cases, testing and evaluation of their performance, 2) Solving problems within smart grid interoperability, 3) Development and testing of new technologies to support smart grid Use Cases.
