(Strategic Platform for Innovation and Research in Intelligent Power)
iPower, “Strategic Platform for Innovation and Research in Intelligent Power”, is a strategic platform where universities and industrial partners consolidates innovation and research activities for the purpose of developing intelligent control of decentralized power consumption. The iPower Platform develops and matures Smart Grid technologies for the electrical grid, industries and residential applications. The society needs Smart Grid technology to ensure that the electrical grid can absorb all the energy generated by wind and solar renewables. The iPower platform links research, innovation and demonstration to actual product development by specifying technologies, requirements and methods for Smart Grid products. It enables the industry partners to become first movers in a new and growing world market. Our group is responsible for distribution grid’s market design and network planning for the active management of distributed energy resources and demand response, ensuring system-wide socio economy and power system reliability.
