Energy use in society is in a transition to use less fossil fuel and more renewable energy, but still using less energy in total. Electrical energy plays a key role in this and takes a more and more important role in society. It is therefore important to complement energy and climate-related targets with the assurance of reliable electricity supply. The power system research at IEA is aligned with these high level goals and key themes are:
- Power system integration of renewable electricity generation covers wind power integration on distribution and system levels, but also issues related to distributed (micro) generation such as photovoltaics.
- Reliable power supply includes assuring personal safety through reliable fault clearing, managing stability limits and analyzing large disturbances including geomagnetic disturbances.
The research methods range from experimental analysis of laboratory-scale systems to computer simulations of detailed dynamic models of national power systems. This is complemented by field measurements from Phasor Measurements Units and other devices. The subject areas covered cover but are not limited to power systems analysis, electrical machines, power electronics, signal processing and power system automation.
