During the course of the visit between 13th and 21st of December 2018, the project team member Matej Krpan M.Sc. has met with several professors and researchers with whom he has discussed power systems research and exchanged experiences. He has gained insight into the postgraduate research life of a renowned international university and the cutting-edge research done at The University of Manchester. Specifically, he has talked with professors and researchers about the modelling and control of advanced power system technologies such as wind power plants with inertial response capabilities, batteries and ultracapacitors and other power electronics-based energy sources and storage solutions for power system dynamics studies.
The outcomes of the visit are a better understanding of advanced power system modelling, insight into the workings of a top international university and making academic contacts for potential future collaboration. The additional information can be found here.
