Description: VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland is a globally networked multi-technological contract research organization. VTT provides high-end technology solutions and innovation services that enhance the customers’ competitiveness, thereby creating prerequisites for society’s sustainable development, employment, and wellbeing.
The ICT and 5G testing facilities at VTT have been improved in 2018-2019 by commissioning a 5G test environment at the MultiPower laboratory including several test networks and communication emulators, remote interconnection to the Oulu smart grid laboratory and automated remote control of distant 300 kW loads. Additionally, DC grid interface for residential customers, weather station adjacent to the PV station and continuously controlled load bank have been commissioned at MultiPower. The control system is based on IEC61850 with GOOSE communication and other standard features. Time synchronization has been enhanced by installing a fiber connection to the atomic clocks at VTT MIKES, the National Metrology Institute of Finland, providing the UTC maintained by Finland.
