DMCC 2. Sectors R&D

FACTS|HVDC, Stability Methods, AI, Super & Smart Grid Concepts

DMCC collaborates with universities and research institutions. Together with our partners we participate in scientific and research projects connected to the development of new technologies for power system operation and control. Our company employs very experienced researchers holding various scientific degrees, including Ph.D and Dc.Sc in electrical engineering.

The results of research projects are regularly presented at the most prestigious scientific international conferences worldwide. For more information please go to the Company News.

The scientific interests of our staff includes the following areas:

  • FACTS|HVDC Application in power systems.

The main area of scientific interest lies in the application of FACTS and HVDC for enhancement of power system stability and security of supply. The Interaction between FACTS|HVDC and other control systems, likes AGC, SPA are being studied.

The computation methods for stability assessment are in the focus of our research for many years.

DMCC develops various software tools to enhance the simulation efficiency of power systems. The prototype of on-line stability assessment tool is being developed. Various automation toolbox for transient and steady state analysis is under development.

In the Artificial Intelligence applications in power system, we are involved in development of expert systems for emergency situation awareness, artificial neural networks for emergency alarm handling, heuristic search algorithms, pattern recognition and evolutionary programming for system restoration.

For the testing of the algorithms and setpoints of SPA for stability control we use SIL&MIL Technology. OPC is used to connect the model of the SPA with the model of the grid. Information exchange between both models during RMS time domain simulation allows to investigate the behavior of SPA in number of different generated situations in power systems.

Research in the area of SUPER GRID CONCEPT is mainly connected with application of embedded VSC HVDC for reinforcement of AC grid.
