About the partners








DTU Wind Energy

- has a long tradition in wind energy research, being the continuator of the former Risø National Laboratory, a worldwide pioneer in wind power research and development.

The objective of DTU Wind Energy research is to provide industry and society with new solutions, with due consideration to the demands for significant reductions in the consumption of resources and environmental impact worldwide. DTU Wind Energy participates in Danish and international research programmes and conducts research and consulting activities for industry and governmental authorities. DTU Wind Energy has large experience with modelling, control and integration of wind power in power systems. DTU Wind Energy is the leader of IEC wind turbine models IEC TC88 WG27, which will be extended for the PV models and used in the power system. DTU Wind Energy has large expertise in wind power plant modelling, control and integration of wind power in power systems, gathered over the years through a large number of national and European research projects.

DTU Elektro: Center for Electric Power and Energy (CEE)

- is a center at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) Electrical Engineering for research, innovation and education. CEE is involved in electric technology including production, transmission, distribution and consumption of electricity. CEE aims at obtaining a more intelligent, flexible, and automated electric power system that can handle the future expansion of renewable energy sources and the long term vision of a fossil-free society. CEE holds competences within: electric components, electric power systems, automation of complex power systems, electricity markets and end-users, and intelligent energy systems. CEE-DTU ELEKTRO has been / is involved in a long line of smart grid research and innovation national and international projects regarding PowerLabDK and SYSLAB.






- carries out research in all aspects of Energy Technology.

The institute is divided into six sections covering the areas of Electric Power Systems, Power Electronic Systems, Electrical Machines, Fluid Power Systems, Fluid Mechanics and Combustion and Thermal Energy Systems. The sections related to the proposal are Sections of Electrical Power Systems, and Combustion and Thermal Energy Systems.

The institute has strategic alliance with industries, research organization, utilities and universities both at home and abroad. Close collaboration is expected to produce a creative and technical environment for research and development that will benefit the project significantly. It also has access to an extensive research database, software and simulation tools like real time dynamic simulator (RTDS) and dSPACE. The existing smart grid Lab at AAU ET is used to demonstrate control and operation strategies developed in the project. It consists of wind and PV setup, controllable loads, smart meters etc.

AAU Wireless Communication Networks section

- is the Department of Electronic Systems, which is one of the largest departments at Aalborg University with a total of more than 300 employees.

The department is internationally recognized for its contributions within information and communication technology (ICT). The research and teaching of the Department of Electronic Systems focus on electronic engineering and the activity areas are organized in five sections. (AAU WCN) has competences throughout the network layer stack, and develops network architectures, protocol solutions, and evaluation methodologies for future wireless and wired communication networks.

Focus areas include: network planning, QoS support in IP-based architectures, resilient data transmission, network performance monitoring, and context-sensitive networking with special attention to dynamic information management.            




Vestas Wind Systems

- has strong industrial experience in embedded power plant control related to grid integration of wind.

Vestas has in particular relevant expertise in electrical engineering, control software and hardware design and power forecasting. Vestas has large expertise in wind turbine/power plant models, wind power plant real-time control and in testing wind power plants as well. Vestas has knowledge on capabilities and limitations of various types of wind turbines, control platforms and infrastructure. Vestas contribution in the project is mainly related with WP5, namely verification of ancillary services in HIL and SYSLAB, due to its expertise described above.
