System Optimization between power producer and grid owners
We are proud of our hydropower research collaboration with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory within our SysOpt project. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the University of South-Eastern Norway (USN) are collaborating to advance hydroelectric technology research under the System Optimization Project (SysOpt). Please take a moment to explore the article on NREL’s website […]
We are pleased to announce a new researcher to our project. Sulabh Sachan received his M.Tech degree in power system engineering at Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee (IIT Roorkee) in India. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology, India. He has 14 international peer reviewed journal articles and […]
We are happy to introduce a new member to our project. Daniel Baltensperger received his Ph.D. in Electric Power Engineering at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in 2023. He currently works as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Electric Energy at the same university. His research is centered on the operation […]
The research in SysOpt addresses new knowledge and innovative methods within hydropower technology and voltage control to create opportunities in the following areas.
- Strengthening the national power system operational security of supply and power transfer capability while reducing investment costs and transmission losses;
- Optimize the interplay between the power producer and grid owner(s) (Transmission System Operator TSO, and the Distribution System Operator DSO) through enhanced coordinated actions.
