MAIN

Welcome to the "New Tools for the Design and Control of Hybrid ac/dc Distribution Networks (Road2DC)" project website, financed by the Basque Government.



Project financed by the Basque Government (ELKARTEK programme).

Principal Investigator 2: Jon Andoni Barrena

DeustoTech - CCM Coordinator: Enrique Zuazua Iriondo

Research Centers: Mondragon University, CCM & Energy (DeustoTech), TECNALIA, Ingeteam & IK4-IKERLAN.

Duration: From January 1st, 2018 to December 31st, 2019


LINE OF RESEARCH 1: DEFINITION OF SCENARIOS OF AC/DC HYBRID NETWORKS

The first line of research corresponds to the definition and study of different scenarios in which the integration of hybrid ac/dc networks represents a significant improvement in technical and economic terms compared to the use of conventional power grids. The research carried out in this task will lay the foundations for the rest of the project, since the mathematical tools and the control and management algorithms will be checked in these scenarios.


LINE OF RESEARCH 2: ANALYSIS AND MODELING OF HYBRID NETWORKS AC/DC

The second line of research is aimed at investigating the design of hybrid ac/dc networks starting from the current medium and low voltage infrastructure.


LINE OF RESEARCH 3: GESTIÓN Y CONTROL DE REDES HÍBRIDAS AC/DC

The third line of investigation of Road2DC is aimed at investigating the control of high and low level of hybrid ac/dc networks for the scenarios defined in line 1.
