Welcome to CIRED online

Decarbonization, decentralization and digitalization lead to a radical transformation of the energy landscape. Increasing integration of power from renewable sources, often decentral with multidirectional energy flows, poses challenges to our power grids. These days, you need digital technologies and IoT solutions to intelligently respond and adapt to changes in the grid. Intelligent and cutting-edge solutions are the key to leverage the data in the grid that allows to make grid operation reliable, cost-efficient, flexible, and safe.

Intelligent and cutting-edge solutions are the key to leverage the data in the grid that allows to make grid operation reliable, cost-efficient, flexible, and safe.

Vulnerability to cyberattacks grow significantly in critical infrastructure. What would happen if a cyberattack takes place in today’s DSO premises? What would an integrated IT/OT domain impact on the total reliability levels in already highly reliable DSO infrastructure? In order to tackle these challenges, DSOs and other critical utilities must fully and fearlessly embrace the IT/OT convergence.

Cable connection bushing type C according to EN 50181 with Rogowski coil current sensor and capacitive voltage sensor according to IEC 61869-10 and IEC 61869-11 (No 744)

 

Bernd Schüpferling

Siemens AG, Germany

 

The energy transition, renewable energy infeed and increasing use of electromobility lead to volatile energy flows today’s medium-voltage distribution grids are not designed for. This makes grids reaching their technical limits more and more frequently, or even go beyond it.

To be able to monitor conformity with these limits, it has become increasingly necessary to measure the current flow and voltage stress in the medium-voltage switchgear of the primary and secondary distribution level with high accuracy.

Pressure vessels for SF6-free medium voltage GIS (No 847)

 

Franka Stöhling, Philipp Kostaras

Siemens AG, Germany

 

The industrial sector of energy distribution and transmission is investing in the development of gas-insulated switchgear, which are operating without the insulating-gas SF6. To safeguard the unique advantages of gas-insulated technology without further promoting fluorinated gases (F-gases), Siemens relies on natural origin gases (Clean Air) for insulation purpose in hermetically sealed vessels.

Coordinated electric vehicle charging – performance analysis of developed algorithms (No 726)

The electric vehicle charging may provoke overloading of the distribution transformer (DTR) and line segments in the LV level. Congestion management by coordinated EV charging becomes an alternative to the conventional and cost intensive grid reinforcement. A conceivable approach is to send control signals to EVCS that allow for charging with either maximal or minimal power.

A main greenhouse gas emission contributor is the transportation sector. Hence, comes the urgent necessity for its electrification. As the biggest ratio of the transportation is privately owned and operated, its electrification represents one of the biggest challenges for Distribution System Operators (DSOs). The paper provides the basis for the integration of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles in the future planning of urban Distribution Power Systems (DPSs).

Relevant operating points for future grid planning of urban low-voltage grids (No 472)

For low-voltage grids (LV grids), an increased integration of photovoltaic systems (PVS) for urban LV grids on the generation side and an increase of private and public charging points (CPs) for electric vehicles and electric heat pumps (HPs) on the load side can be assumed. This paper analyzes the influence of the separated and combined consideration of the operating points (OPs) "high feed-in" and "high load" with respect to resulting grid violations (over and under voltage and equipment overloads) due to new grid users on the future urban grid planning.
