The NSGL gives opportunity to test control algorithms and power equipment under realistic conditions, which are otherwise difficult or expensive to achieve. This presentation will give an overview of the lab infrastructure and equipment available.

12:30 Power system activities in the NSGL, Santiago Sanchez / Abel A. Taffese, NTNU:

This talk presents some of the NSGL activities in two parts. The first focuses on rapid controller prototyping, and monitoring of grid condition using real- time simulation. The second presents a case study involving power oscillation damping from a Modular Multilevel Converter (MMC) using Power Hardware-In-The-Loop (PHIL) setup.

13:15 Smart energy management for load smoothing and peak shaving, Spyridon Chapaloglou, NTNU:

The integration of renewables into isolated microgrids (e.g. islands or offshore O&G platforms) is associated with reduced reliability and troubled operation. A case study of a smart energy management will be presented. The algorithm uses machine learning and energy analytics to predict actions and optimize power flows among different components, taking advantage of energy storage systems.

Norway and India have many areas that can be defined as microgrids. Norway in terms of islands with weak and old sea cables not profitable to replace, and India in terms of rural areas with weak and often faulty tie-lines. This presentation will give an overview of ROME, a joint Indian – Norwegian research project addressing ICT challenges of microgrids operating in both grid-connected or island-mode.
