Synchronization in dynamical systems and power systems

Synchronization - a fundamental concept Synchronization is a fascinating and fundamental physical phenomenon found in many different systems with vastly different sizes. It can be found in mechanical, biological or chemical systems as well as human behavior or human made structures, for example in power systems. The first observation and description of synchronization was made…

Microgrids, a game changer

In the coming years, the Energy sector will change completely its paradigm. It is already happening due to the disruption of the ICT technologies, the cost reduction of the renewable energy sources (RES), energy storage systems (ESS) and other grid devices which make the grid smarter, in other words, more controllable and more observable. One…

Faults and power grids

Electric energy is one of the most remarkable resources of modern society. From the consumers’ side, electricity is available instantaneously, exactly in the amount required, and at the requested voltage and frequency. To achieve this very high level of performance, a very complex network composed of generators, transformers, and transmission and distribution lines is carefully…

The role of Electrical storage systems in future grids

The evolution of modern electrical grids Global warming is a reality that faces humankind. The world has embraced this fact (albeit a few individuals trying to make things ‘great’ again) and has steadfastly begun the fight against it. The European Union was one of the first bodies to start initiatives and issued directives to combat…
