Project

MIDAS, located in Turkey in the Antalya region aims at overcoming these main challenges and making the grid operation more efficient and reliable. For this purpose, a novel distribution automation approach is being proposed by utilizing renewable energy forecasting, remote sensing and smart control techniques via specially designed control software and smart devices.

DISTRIBUTED AUTOMATION

Distributed Automation (DA) refers to various automated control techniques that optimize the performance of power distribution networks. In contrast to transmission networks, distribution networks have historically not included much sensing and control outside the substation. DA is considered a core part of a smart grid, interacting with almost all other smart grid applications and making it more efficient and reliable. Due to the proliferation of renewable energy and its distributed generation, smart operation of the grid has become more important to address the uncertainty in power generation, difficulties in load flow optimization and voltage regulation.
Hyper-local, reliable meteorological nowcasts and forecasts provide the firm base for DA by predicting loads generated by distributed renewables and also demand. Accordingly, UBIMET provides forecasts of global radiation, wind power and precipitation (for hydropower forecast) in a downscaled high temporal solution that is fully compatible with data flow standards in state-of-the-art and future energy systems.
This project aims at employing multi-disciplinary monitoring and control technologies/techniques along with a new approach to design a novel distribution automation system and overcome the main difficulties of the conventionally designed distribution systems that have severe problems because of the integration of renewables with an increased rate and high shares; and thus having a reliable and efficient distribution system with a wide-area demonstration, in which one of the biggest electricity distribution companies in Turkey will be involved
The MIDAS project is funded by the European Commission within ERA-NET Smart Grid Plus, ERA-Net Smart Grids Plus is an initiative of 21 European countries and regions. The vision for Smart Grids in Europe is to create an electric power system that integrates renewable energies and enables flexible consumer and production technologies.

MIDAS has received funding in the framework of the joint programming initiative 2015 - 1st Joint Call of ERA-Net Smart Grids Plus, with support from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
