Companies are increasingly interested in virtualizing electrical equipment because it offers a range of benefits for their operations. Virtualization reduces the need for physical infrastructure, which can result in cost savings, reduced maintenance requirements, and increased safety. We will be at CIRED 2023, showcasing how to virtualize substations from Transmission to Middle and Low Voltage networks through Edge Computing Technology.
With the increased number of distributed energy resources DERs onto the grid, energy operators need a predictive system based on consumption and production patterns to help them avoid congestion and overvoltage events in the grid. In this article, we cover a specific project we are running under the i-nergy programme, an EU-funded initiative aiming to support and develop new AI-based Energy Services.
The main goal of virtualization is to provide a new operational environment, which is not bound to any computer hardware or operating system. Hardware components are typically designed to be robust and reliable, but they can also be expensive and difficult to modify or upgrade. Separating hardware from software allows for the software to be updated or modified without affecting the hardware.
Companies are increasingly interested in virtualizing electrical equipment because it offers a range of benefits for their operations. Firstly, virtualization reduces the need for physical infrastructure, which can result in cost savings, reduced maintenance requirements, and increased safety. In this article, we talk about the benefits of separating hardware and software in Substations.
Barbara´s technology is being implemented for the management and exploitation of energy resources in Local Energy Communities at ELKARTEN Project. It will also secure data exchange of energy generation and consumption amongst their members.
Barbara joins Sec2Grid Project to accelerate and improve the process of discovery, detection and mitigation of vulnerabilities in grid devices, as a basis for the specification of cybersecurity management requirements in a Smart Grid system.
