Dedicated spotlights on technical results of the GRID4EU Demo 5 are available via the following downloadable articles:
The demonstrator was designed and implemented in order to demonstrate the innovative management of failures on MV and LV grids. This was mainly achieved by installation of remote controlled devices, introduction of infrastructure enabling fast communication and modifications of SCADA system to support automated operation.
A combined heat and power unit (CHP) was used in order to supply electricity for the island operation area. Other equipment, called Island Operation Automatics, allows switching to/from the island operation and balancing the power supply with power consumption during the island operation.
