Nice, October 6th and 7th, 2015

EDSO visit 2

Following a suggestion of GRID4EU during the 4th InnoGrid2020+ Conference, the Projects Committee of EDSO decided to organize one of its meetings on October 6th & 7th, 2015 in Nice. During this meeting, GRID4EU presented first outcomes of the project. 4 Demos of GRID4EU (Demo1, Demo2, Demo5 and Demo6) presented their approaches and achieved results.

On October 6th, 2015, an on-field visit of installations in the GRID4EU Demo6 was performed.

This included a visit of:

  • The secondary Substation, “Dock Trachel”, supplying an area of 12 clients, with around 250 kW of peak consumption and 430 kWp of PV installed capacity. A 5-hours islanding of this area has been performed at the same day.
  • A 4 kW residential battery and a 33 kW grid battery. Batteries are used to:
    • Absorb the increased solar generation in summer between noon and 4 PM
    • Reduce the consumption peak in winter between 6 PM and 8 PM
  • The showroom of the Demo where Use Cases were further developed and explained and first results presented.

On October 7th, 2015, a 2-hours GRID4EU session was included in the agenda of the EDSO Projects Committee meeting. During the first hour, a focus on grid automation of failure management at the Medium Voltage level was performed by the Demo1 and Demo5 of GRID4EU. During the second hour, a focus on outage detection and management in the Low Voltage network was performed by the Demo2 and Demo5 of GRID4EU.
