Self-stabilization of electricity grids in terms of “availability” and “quality of service”


Today, energy production and distribution undergoes a change of paradigm comparable to the change from line-based to package-based communication in information and communication technology (ICT).

Project description

While the European continent faces the challenges of improving stability and reliability of excessive green energy in the network, Indian infrastructure deals with inadequate or lack of electricity. Renewable integration and enhancing the availability of the network is the most pressing issue for both EU and India.

Stabiliz-E focuses on self-stabilization in terms of "availability" and "Quality of Service" which is considered as stable Energy. The key goals of Stabiliz-E project:

  • Design and implement low cost real-time monitoring and control devices to be deployed in remote and cost dependent regions in India.
  • Devise and deploy the low cost infrastructure, automatic methodologies to analyze, decide and reconfigure in near real time the network.

Research contribution

Apart from being the project coordinator, following are the fortiss contributions to the project:

  • Use cases and scenarios definition: include different perspectives and characteristics like cultural, financial, political, technical, environmental, etc.
  • Definition of faults, network and failures scenarios (defining the scope of the faults/ failures / errors.
  • Behavior Pattern: Defining what is the normal behavior ( requirement adherence) and how to identified the abnormal behavior for proactive actions ( e.g. alarming services)
  • Implementation of the early fault-detection strategies as alarms /notifications.
  • Implementation and validation of reconfiguration strategies in the living lab demonstrator.
