Final Project Report of Cloudgrid
The CloudGrid project is done in cooperation between NTNU, IPE, ZHAW, Chalmers and STRI/ABB. The work is split in six work packages where ABB/STRI, ZHAW, Chalmers and NTNU were package leaders. Besides the authors of this report, the following persons contributed to the project: I. Zikmanis (IPE), M. Calder (ABB), M. Javdani (ABB), A. Babak (Chalmers), A. Bahmani (Chalmers), P. Chen (Chalmers), C. Agathokleopus (Chalmers), O. Lennerhag (STRI/ABB), G. Pinares (STRI/ABB), A. Perez (STRI/ABB) and S. Sanchez (NTNU). The cooperation between the parties is established on many levels. Laboratory facilities and field measurements were shared to a certain extent and data sharing through a cloud was accomplished. This has a high significance for future smart grids where data exchange is essential for stable operation as well as short term and long-term planning. The scope of work covers of the work packages covers a broad range of topics, including stability of current and future power grids, ancillary services, energy management as well as multiterminal HVDC links and high power converter design and control.
