Innovative Controls for renewable sources Integration into smart energy systems (INCITE), a new European training network, announces today the official launch of www.incite-itn.eu
The project awarded with more than 3 million euros is a Marie-Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network funded by the European Commission under the H2020 Framework Program. The project brings together researchers in Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Italy, Germany and Portugal including academic and industry partners. The project started on 1 December 2015 and will run for four years.
INCITE brings together experts on control and power systems with the aim of training 14 young researchers capable of providing innovative control solutions for the future electrical networks. This website is devoted to inform different audiences including the scientific community, companies and the general public about the project’s existence, its progress and its achievements.
INCITE aims to propose innovative solutions for the challenging work of controlling and designing the future electrical networks. For this purpose, INCITE seeks to create a multidisciplinary research space with a complete view of the smart grids control where talented young researchers can be trained through research. INCITE seeks to cover the most representative issues like optimisation tools to balance generation and demand, to increase efficiency and to reduce the total energy cost, control of electronics interfaces for the implementation of smart grids, control of ESS to add flexibility to the power management, control for integration of RES and distributed generation, monitoring and state estimation solutions among others.
