Welcome to Future Low Voltage Distribution Grids - A practical approach (2021)

Description: Low-voltage (LV) distribution grids are undergoing a major change with the additions of resources such as PVs, electric vehicles etc. At present, LV grids are not observable in near realtime due to which DSOs are unable to perform active grid management.  By implementing an advanced metering infrastructure and leveraging the ICT, DSOs can utilize the existing grid assets for monitoring, control and planning of LV grids. This three days course gives a systematic approach for modelling, design and operation of future LV grids using the model based design approach and the Smart Grid Architecture Model (SGAM). The course includes a wide set of hands-on exercises and demonstrations in a Real-Time Hardware-In-the Loop framework. The main focus in this course will be on: 

  • DSO challenges on operation, control and planning  
  • SGAM framework  
  • Real-Time modelling of future low voltage distribution grids  
  • ICT and data collection mechanisms   
  • Data Security and Privacy Aspects  
  • Runtime Data Driven Control and Protection  
  • Asset management  
  • RT-HIL validation and testing of smart-grid solutions

Important information concerning PhD courses: We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 3.000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately four months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
