Electrical networks

The electricity grid is a crucial part of the energy system of the future. With growing electrification (including heat pumps and electric vehicles) and an increase in intermittent renewable generation capacity (solar and wind), the electricity grid will be used more actively in the coming years. Within the electrical grid research line, we at EnergyVille investigate the design and operation of the electricity grid of the future.

Our research focuses on:

  • Decision support for low-voltage grids
  • Decision support for transmission grids
  • High-voltage direct current (HVDC) grids
  • Low-voltage direct current networks (DC Nanogrids)
  • Digitalisation
