HPC Ongrid project collaborates with Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) in the develop and programming of different components of a hybrid generation plant controller. The controller is designed and owned by SGRE who is responsible of the specifications a control strategies definition. CARTIF collaborates in the programming tasks of some of the algorithms and also in developing simulation models for the control validation previous to its real deployment in the plant.
- To programm functions and algorithms to be integrated in the Hybrid Plant Controller of Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy according to their specifications.
- To develop simulation models of hybrid power plants –isolated and grid connected- for the functional validation of the control algorithms.
- Hybrid Power Plant controller according to the defined goals and strategies of Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy.
- TRNSYS and Simulink models of a hybrid power plant.
Overall budget: 208.500,00 €

Smart grids projects:
The proliferation of renewable energies and the electric charges that operates with continuous current originates a growing interest in electric grids that operates with continuous current. This is due to the higher efficiency, security, flexibility and feasability that grids have than those ones that operates with alternate current.
The MUSE GRIDS project wants to contribute to the development of interconnected local energy network management systems to make better use of the synergies between these networks.
INTERPRETER will overcome these limitations by means of a modular grid management solution consisting of a set of 10 software applications for an optimal design, planning, operation and maintenance of the electricity grid
The TALENT project aims to increase the flexibility of the electrical system by reducing the cost associated with the integration of batteries in the electrical network.
The SocialRES project seeks to increase scientific knowledge about the non-technological aspects that prevent the adoption of social energy alternatives such as cooperatives, aggregators or crowdfunding platforms.
The objective of the Optigrid project is the research and development of concepts and services that allow greater flexibility in electricity generation and demand.
Urban water networks could became a source of renewable energy. Energy harvest in water industry using micro-hydropower technology.
