The SOSPO project

Welcome to the homepage for the SOSPO-project

Event_program ## News - Final SOSPO dissemination event: ## In relation to the completion of the SOSPO R&D project, a ½+½ day dissemination event will be arranged for audience from industry (TSO‘s and manufactures) and academia on the 15th-16th of March. The event will be arranged as a ½+ ½ day event to enable participants from abroad to fly in to Copenhagen in the morning of day I, and fly back home in the afternoon of day II.

The objective is to have broader scope for this event, than just presenting SOSPO R&D results. Therefore presentation will given of other R&D projects, that focus on development of new tools/approaches for ensuring a secure and reliable operation of future power systems.

The themes for the two ½-days will be as follows:

Day I: 12:30-17:00: Presentation of actual R&D projects focusing on Secure Operation of Future Power Systems Day II 9:00 – 12:00: Demonstration of SOSPO R&D results in PowerLabDK‘s facilities at DTU

The SOSPO project focuses on a critical, difficult and not yet treated problem regarding how secure operation of the power systems can be obtained when the large thermal power plants - which today provides the services needed for a secure operation - are replaced with sustainable resources as wind and solar energy.

The objective of the SOSPO project is to carry out research and development of methods for real-time assessment of system stability and security, and in methods for intelligent wide-area prosumption control that can ensure stable and secure operation of the future power system.

The research in the SOSPO project focuses on methods that enable system stability and security assessment in real-time and on methods for automatically determining control actions that regain system security when an insecure operation has been detected.

The project period spans four years, starting in January 2012. The total budget for the project is 30.2 million DKK, which covers among others the funding of 5 PhD and three PostDoc positions. The project is managed by Professor Jacob Østergaard, Head of Center for Electric Power and Energy (CEE) at DTU Elektro.
