5 Let’s see why we speak of smart grids

6 Centralized Large Power Plants Technology of one century Remote consumers Assymetry problem: production and interconnections with ballkanic countries in the North,… …the largest consumption in the South (Attiki).


8 Future: The grid must accept the decentralized producers (ex. Renewable energy sources), but also cope with the problems of energy quality ex. Harmonics, voltage instability) and also be cost effective. The project deals with all the metrological aspects of the new grids

In Greece: measurements in the Transport Grid. Field measurements W.P. 1 Phase Measurement Units (PMUs)

15 The transmission grid in Greece is in synchronous and parallel operation with ENTSDOE interconnected european system. (European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity), ex UCTE (Union pour la Coordination du Transport de l’ Electricité). The parallel operation is succeeded through transmission interconnection lines of 400 and 150 kV with the systems of Albania, Boulgaria and Skopie In addition, the Greek system is connected asynchronoulsly through direct current connection with Italy underwater. The topology of the existing interconnections and interconnections under construction is shown in the next figure, where the existing intrconnections and interconnections under construction are depicted with different colors. Greece is connected with the system of FYROM with one 400 kV line between Thessaloniki and Dubrovo and is also connected with the Bulgarian system through a 400 kV line between Thessaloniki and Blagoevgrad.

25 Developement of the non intrusive load monitoring technique for domestic loads. Study of the criteria for the recognition of domestic low voltage loads, like the current at startup and at the steady state, the harmonic content, the active an reactive energy. A software platform was designed that simulates the characteristic of loads and recognizes the devices that are in work. The “signatures” of more than 10 low voltage loads have been identified and the impact that the rest of the grid has on them is investigated.

28  Two options for measurement: 20 kV, 30 kA or 150 kV, 4 kA Conclusion: Efficiency of power plants is directly reflected in the electrical power output

29 WP3, Tools for portable and remote measurement of Power Quality Paul Wright  Remote systems for PQ monitoring.  PQ measurements on installed wind turbines.  Flicker effects of Wind Turbines, verifying IEC Fictitious grid technique.  Rail distribution grid PQ measurements.  Smart Grid Trials – before and after studies.  High voltage transmission line.

30 The aims of this work package is to improve the reliability of the grid, defining the metrological strategy necessary for their observation and control. Development of a smart grid model (STRAT: University of Strathclyde-UK), in which data from real power flow measurements can be inserted. Consequently, investigation of the ability to estimate the condition in positions where there are no metering devices. A sensitive matrix was inserted in the software, with which the minimum set of measurements was specified, which ensures an accurate estimate of the system with the minimum cost. The results of the software were presented in the “Innovative Smart Grid Technology (ISGT)”conference in Μanchester, in December 2011. Development of a second grid model that investigates the topology of the measurement nodes and their number, so that the cost will be diminished. Also, the metering specifications are studied: the common smart meters are not “smart”, while the industrial ones fulfill the scientific requirements, but cannot used in wide scale because of their cost (PTB, Germany). The impact of the charging of electrical vehicles will be investigated (TU-BS Technical Universtityyof Braunschweig, Germany). In this workpackage the increased new requirements for data security and protection will be studied in accordance with the regulatory recommendations Mandate 441 και mandate 490. Following, a cryptographic infrastructure for the smart grids will be proposed based on the above analysis.
