The target of the overall E2SG project is to devise and design mechanisms and policies to assemble, monitor and control smart grids, i.e. a set of interconnected nodes whose primary goal is to generate, exchange and consume electrical energy in the most efficient and reliable way by exploiting distributed information that is sensed, transmitted and processed over the same set of nodes and links. From this point of view, E2SG is complementary with respect to ERG that focuses on nodes with generation abilities whose interfaces are the main topic of common interest.
E2SG aims at addressing most of the challenges entailed in evolving the concept of smart-grid to the level needed by both the industrial players and the society of the next decades, and the uprising environmental awareness which will lead to the increasing exploitation of removable energy sources.
LEITAT’s contribution: LEITAT contribution to the project is related to: simulation of new algorithms for smart conversion and implementation of smart meters for sensing and its communication within the network with two assumptions: low-power and low-cost.
