INCITE (Innovative controls for renewable source integration into smart energy systems) is Marie Sklodowska-Curie European Training Network (ITN-ETN) funded by the HORIZON 2020 Programme that brings together experts on control and power systems, from academia and industry with the aim of training fourteen young researchers capable of providing innovative control solutions for the future electrical networks.

New smart meters, distributed generation, renewable energy sources and the concern about the environment are redefining electrical networks. Now, both consumers and generators are active agents, capable of coordinating the power exchange in the electrical grids depending on multiple factors. To take full advantage of the new electrical networks, it is necessary a coordinated and harmonic interaction of the all actors in the network. Control algorithms are intended for this purpose; to act at several levels to conduct the electrical power exchange and improve efficiency, reliability and resilience of the network. INCITE seeks new control algorithms with an integral view of the future electrical networks, covering aspects like energy management, stability of electrical variables, monitoring and communication implementation, energy storage, among others.
