Abstract

The SCCER Future Swiss Electrical Infrastructure (FURIES) join the competences of the top Swiss academic and industrial actors in the area of power / energy systems. FURIES is expected to shape the next generation of the electrical Swiss infrastructure in all its layers, from transmission to distribution, enabling a vast penetration of renewable energy resources in order to facilitate the Swiss nuclear-power phase-out. The project has different action scales ranging from the system to its components. In particular, FURIES will research up-to-date planning, monitoring and control strategies of the Swiss electrical/energy grids together with the study of new technologies and components. The proof-of-concept of the research will be deployed towards dedicated simulation tools and experimental demonstrators designed in collaboration with the industry partners.
