The transition towards a low-carbon economy is significantly transforming the power system from a unidirectional, centralised and fossil-based system towards a bidirectional, distributed and renewable-based one. DSOs and TSOs are facing more complex grid operations and available tools for grid management have often underperformed for several reasons. 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. These will be offered to grid operators through an open-source interoperable platform.
- To complete existing information about distribution networks with a tool able to generate new grid models from different available sources.
- To increase the efficiency of the grid management, including both operation and maintenance, to improve the sustainability and reduce costs in the electricity design and planning through ten of innovative, interoperable and modular software applications.
- Development of low voltage networks modelling tool.
- Development of software applications for efficient operation and maintenance of the network.
- Development of software applications for efficient planning.
- Integration of the modelling tool and software applications into a common framework and existing platforms.
- Testing and validation of previous developments.
- Software tool for low voltage networks modelling.
- 5 software applications for efficient operation and maintenance of the network.
- 5 software applications for efficient network planning.
- Modelling tool and software applications integrated into a common framework and existing platforms.

Smart grid 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.
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.
HPC Ongrid project collaborates with Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) in the develop and programming of different components of a hybrid generation plant controller.
