Description: The Center for Electric Power and Energy (CEE) is a center for research, innovation and education at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), department of Electrical Engineering. CEE covers a broad range of electric technologies including production, transmission, distribution and consumption of electricity as well the interactions with other energy carrier systems such as district heating. CEE aims at enabling a more intelligent, flexible and automated electric power system that can accommodate the future expansion of renewable energy production and the long term vision of a fossil-free society. CEE holds competences within electric components, electric power systems, automation of complex power systems, electricity markets, end-user interaction and intelligent energy systems. The Energy Systems Operation and Management (ESOM) group is a research group within CEE and performs research covering the development and analysis of new solutions for the management and operation of future distributed power systems with a high share of renewable energy and distributed energy resources. The investigation of future system architectures, centralized as well as decentralized, is part of the research area, with the goal to provide optimal and seamless interaction of all system elements and subsystems. This includes e.g. agent-based solutions and aggregation. The solutions cover novel ICT implementations combined with innovative market-based designs and new grid management methods and important aspect is interoperability of communication and services. ESOM research efforts also cover innovative monitoring, operation and control which enable for example management of grid bottleneck, islanding solutions and microgrids. The research has important interfaces with many of the other groups including research within markets and energy resources, services and control.
PowerLabDK is an experimental platform for electric power and energy laboratory administered by CEE. PowerLabDK supports development, test, training and demonstration of technologies that will contribute to the development of a reliable, cost efficient and sustainable energy system based on renewable energy sources. PowerLabDK is a national GreenLab under the Danish Energy Agency.
The facilities contain flexible test laboratories, large-scale experimental facilities and a complete full-scale power distribution system on the Island of Bornholm which serves as a data source and platform for full-scale and real-life experiments. The PowerLabDK facilities welcome engineers and researchers from industry and academia as well as innovative students.
