Madrid, Spain, 12 May possibly 2020
Atos, a world wide leader in electronic transformation, announces its participation in the FLEXIGRID project, which aims to boost the procedure of the distribution grid – producing it much more flexible, trusted and charge-efficient, via the development of revolutionary answers. Its objective is to contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions and to the 2030 EU local climate aims while making ready the grid to the enhance in renewable electrical power. As aspect of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 plan, FLEXIGRID was initiated mid-2019 and will last for 4 several years. It brings with each other a consortium of sixteen partners led by the Investigate Centre for Energy Means and Consumption (CIRCE) in Spain.
In order to make sure that the project is efficient throughout all EU networks, eight distinctive use conditions at 4 demo websites (Spain, Greece, Italy and Croatia) have been picked, addressing the most frequent EU distribution grid challenges. Atos will supply and integrate its open up source Framework for Utilities and Products and services (FUSE) for all project routines and demonstration websites, connecting the information generated by genuine end users and teams with the revolutionary products and services created in the project for optimum adaptability.
Enabling adaptability for foreseeable future distribution grid
The electrical power industry is at present transitioning from a centralized technique with passive end users into a flexible network of active end users that includes electrical power communities. FLEXIGRID will produce a set of answers to handle the difficulties that the electric power grid is anticipated to face as a final result of the expanding participation of variable renewable energies in the electrical power technique.
The new instruments will make it possible for the distribution network to functionality properly and stably when a significant aspect of variable renewable electric power sources is related to lower and medium voltage networks. Specially, via the development of revolutionary components and computer software answers, the project will get the job done on:
- Improving the grid hosting potential of renewables
- Increasing the observability, controllability and automation of the network systems for the advancement of both the safety and resilience of the grid
- Mitigating quick and extended-time period congestions in the distributed grid
- Ensuring the interoperability and compatibility of the created answers with distinctive platforms used by European Dispersed Method Operators (DSOs)
In this context, the electrical power system FUSE tends to make accessible the newest systems (Big Info, AI, IoT, Blockchain and FIWARE) to go a person stage more toward sustainability, while providing a effective computer software system that delivers network visibility and control, process automation and company collaboration for answers throughout the electrical power and utility worth chain. Atos will use the system to facilitate the replicability of products and services and answers, integrating distinctive components and computer software answers to fully exploit the information offered by nearby and distributed electrical power means.
“The decentralization of the electrical power industry generates a complicated setting with distinctive actors involved, exactly where everybody focuses on the identical objective, but has their very own capabilities, necessities and characteristics on the way toward a sustainable foreseeable future.” explains Juan Sancho, Energy Sector R&D Engineer at Atos in Iberia. “Leveraging Atos’ comprehensive knowledge in the electrical power sector, FUSE integrates the newest answers and systems to facilitate performance and sustainability, paving the way to the digitalization of the sector and a much more sustainable foreseeable future”
