Smart Grids - Fundamentals and Technologies in Electricity Networks



About the Book

Efficient transmission and distribution of electricity is a fundamental requirement for sustainable development and prosperity. The world is facing great challenges regarding the reliable grid integration of renewable energy sources in the 21st century. The electric power systems of the future require fundamental innovations and enhancements to meet these challenges. The European Union's "Smart Grid" vision provides a first overview of the appropriate deep-paradigm changes in the transmission, distribution and supply of electricity.

The book brings together common themes beginning with Smart Grids and the characteristics of new power plants based on renewable energy and /or highly efficient generation principles. It covers the advanced technologies applied today in the transmission and distribution networks and innovative solutions for maintaining today's high power quality under the challenging conditions of large-scale shares of volatile renewable energy sources in the annual energy balance. Besides considering the new primary and secondary technology solutions and control facilities for the transmission and distribution networks, prospective market conditions allowing network operators and the network users to gain benefits are also discussed. The growing role of information and communication technologies is investigated. The importance of new standards is underlined and the current international efforts in developing a consistent set of standards are described in

detail. The presentation of international experiences to apply novel Smart Grid solutions to the practice of network operation concludes this book.

The authors of the book worked for many years to develop Smart Grid solutions within national and international projects and to introduce them in the practice of network operations.

Between 2000 and 2005 he was president of the business unit "Network Analysis & Consulting" in Erlangen (D) which was extended by the integration of the American company PTI in 2005 into "Power Technologies International" with locations in Erlangen (D), Schenectady (USA), Manchester (UK) and worldwide centers of competence. Between 1995 and 2000 he was also editor of the communication standard IEC 61850, parts 4 (System management) and 7-4 (Data models). He was the German member of CIGRE SC C6 between 2002 and 2008 and from 2004 to 2009 he was an executive member of the European Advisory Council "Smart Grids". He retired from Siemens in 2006 but remains active as chief consultant at NTB Techno service. He is an active member of the German Power Engineering (ETG/ VDE) Society and was the task force leader of "Smart Distribution" (2008) and "Active Energy Networks" (2013). Since 2010 he has acted as the technical and strategic advisor of the European Lightho

use Project, Web2Energy. Furthermore, he was the technical consultant for the German E- Energy projects "RegModHarz" and "Harz.EE-Mobility". He is a guest lecturer at the Otto-von-Guericke University of Magdeburg, at the Technical college in Salzburg and within the professional education program of VDE. He is the author of 180 international publications in 6 languages and has been honored by CIGRE (twice), IEEE and VDE for his outstanding

scientific engagement.

Prof. Dr. Zbigniew Antoni Styczynski received his PhD in electrical engineering in 1977 and finished his professorial dissertation at the Wroclaw University of Technology (Poland) in 1985. He was at the University of Stuttgart for 8 years and since 1999 he has been professor for electric power network and renewable energy at Otto-von-Guericke University in Magdeburg, Germany. He was the Dean of the Faculty from2002-2006. In 2006 he was elected President of the Centre for Renewable Energy Saxony-Anhalt e.V. and in 2008 he became Executive Director of the Institute of Electric Power Systems at the Otto-von-Guericke University. Since 2002 he has also been a member of the senate at this University. He is a co-founder and scientific coordinator of the joint Fraunhofer IFF/ Otto-von-Guericke University Competence Centre of Power Systems and Renewable Energies and founder and director of the Steinbeis Foundation Transfer Centre ENRE in Magdeburg. Furthermore, he is an active member of ETG, CRIS, CIGRE and

IEEE and an expert at FNN Berlin. Since 2004, he has been a fellow of the Conrad Adenauer Foundation and since 2010 he has also been the president of CRIS. He has coordinated numerous national and international projects (e.g. Harz-EE-Mobility). He is author or co-author of more than 200 papers in international journals and has presented at numerous international scientific conferences.
