Research Group for Advanced Power Technologies and Systems

Research group is engaged in research in the power system and industry and has significant experience in implementing international scientific and professional projects with emphasis on the integration of renewable energy sources in the power system in terms of smart (micro) grids, electricity markets, power protection, reliability, stability and quality:
  • Optimization of photovoltaic systems/ microgrids and other  RES power plants, including particularly biomas and biogas is in focus with the development of mathematical and computer models for simulations of power plants on RES, studies on the impact of RES on the power grid and protection settings, smart grid as well as energy efficiency and application of efficient technologies in lighting and energy management systems (EMS)
  • The group deals with advanced power system analysis including coordination of protection of active networks with high share of RES, optimization of power flows, calculation of short circuits, stability and reliability of power system and its parts, analysis of oscillatory stability of power system, parameterization of automatic voltage and excitation regulators (AVR), FDS stabilizer
  • The Group conducts analyzes of the electricity market from the perspective of market participants, techno-economic analysis of generation and network facilities as well as optimization of modern power system management, earthing sizing, measuring earthing resistance and soil resistance and calculating arc energy and guidelines for personal protective equipment
  • Measurements of the level of low-frequency (50 Hz) electromagnetic field are performed according to the standard HRN IEC 61786 in an accredited Laboratory for Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC Lab) as well as in all types of power and industrial plants and in the vicinity of RES as well as quality control of el. energy according to the standard HRN EN 61000-4-30 in accordance with the limitations of the standard HRN EN 50160 on voltage characteristics from public distribution networks.
