Smart vehicles for smart grids, smart grids for smart vehicles
© Editorial OMNIMEDIA S.L. (9/2013)
Smart electric vehicles can become a key player for smart grid deployment. The synergy between smart electric vehicles and smart grids comes mainly from the vehicle electric storage capacity from the battery. This battery allows the vehicle to interact with the grid not only as energy consumer, but also as energy storage point, using a bidirectional electric fl ow charger, known as V2G technology (Vehicle to Grid).

Prosumer microgrids: How the smart grid can be built bottom-up
© Editorial OMNIMEDIA S.L. (9/2013)
The power sector is evolving to a more distributed and participatory system, with the combined drive of competitive renewable generation, storage technologies, electric vehicles, together with increasing needs to cut down emissions and enhanced capabilities of microgrid technology. Building on prosumer microgrids, the transition to a smarter grid can be accelerated.

Interoperability: Integration, testing, and compliance certification to manage grid technology risks
© Editorial OMNIMEDIA S.L. (9/2013)
The energy industry is investing billon of euros to revamp and modernize the electricity sector worldwide and the smart grid concept is the new paradigm. Governments and industry players are looking for the “key” element to assure that thousands or even millions of components in a modernized electric system can operate and communicate with each other seamlessly. This key element we are referring is the interoperability.

Substations go fully digital but stay compatible

The fully digital substation replaces the kilometres of copper hardwiring and proprietary devices of conventional installations with a software-based solution that builds interoperability today and tomorrow.

Smart secondary substation management device

The aim of this paper is to describe a new device that will be installed into the smart secondary substations. It allows the full management of the substation and integrates control, protection, measurement and communication functionalities, on both sides, low voltage and medium voltage side. This device is integrated into a global architecture of automation network as an additional element and it communicates upstream with central systems and downstream with smart meters installed in low voltage network that is supplied by the substation, managing their information and allowing remote operation on them. The device has been designed with a modular and scalable feature, in this way it provides a standard solution for different topologies of secondary substations.

The four tentacles of the smart grid: From telecontrol towards intelligent self-healing
© Editorial OMNIMEDIA S.L. (9/2013)
It is not easy to define the concept of smart grid due to it is an evolution of the current network. However we may try to approach the smart grid by describing the various parts involved in this concept: smart network (SN), smart operation (SO), smart metering (SM) and smart generation (SG).

Europe must speed up to reach targets
© Editorial OMNIMEDIA S.L. (9/2013)
The share of renewables in the European energy mix is increasing dramatically, but the corresponding development of the energy infrastructure, particularly in the distribution network, is lagging sorely behind. If these trends continue, we may be heading for a (CO2-free) train wreck in the not-so-distant future.

Smart Grids, almacenamiento de energía de forma sostenible
© Solar News (6/2013)
La industria eléctrica ha experimentado cambios importantes en los últimos años debido, sobre todo, a la utilización e implementación de nuevas tecnologías que permiten un mejor aprovechamiento de los recursos, una mayor eficiencia en la generación, transmisión y distribución de la energía eléctrica y un crecimiento económico ambientalmente sostenible. Es en este momento cuando se empieza a hablar de Smart Grid.

Chile: el reto de la carretera eléctrica pública
© Solar News (6/2013)
El último sector industrial en anunciar sus necesidades energéticas ha sido el de la minería, que estima que para 2020 precisará un 68% más de energía, según las cifras que maneja el Ministerio de Minería. Pero ¿está la red chilena, con cinco áreas eléctricas no interconectadas entre sí, preparada para asumir más potencia?

Proyecto europeo iGRENNGrid: integración de las renovables en las redes de distribución
© Editorial OMNIMEDIA S.L. (5/2013)
El crecimiento de las energías renovables distribuidas (DRES) en los ámbitos europeos y mundiales es indiscutible, sin embargo los efectos a medio y largo plazo sobre las redes de distribución y sobre el propio servicio eléctrico a los clientes no ha sido aún analizado con la profundidad que requiere.
