Power Systems


Work description

Low voltage (LV) grids have increasing monitoring and control needs in order to meet the challenges created by the integration of photovoltaic microgeneration, the presence of electric vehicles, or approaches that increase the participation of the consumer himself in managing the electricity grid, among others. However, the LV grid does not have a monitoring infrastructure that allows real-time observability of assets. In addition, the topological and electrical characterization of LV networks is typically incorrect, or even non-existent, making it impossible to apply common analysis and resource management techniques. Given these challenges, it becomes relevant to explore data, namely those massively collected by smart meters, to develop techniques and methodologies for LV network monitoring and control.
