Research interests

My research is focused on microgrids. Microgrids may be defined as small power systems with local power generation, storage and consumption, which can be connected to the main electric grid or not. Keywords related to my research in this area include:

Projects

HAEOLUS

HAEOLUS logo

This project aims to install a 2 MW PEM electrolyzer in the Raggovidda wind farm in Norway, whose growth is limited by grid bottlenecks. Several business models (energy storage, mini-grid, fuel production) will be evaluated for the use of the produced hydrogen. A particularity of the wind farm is that it is difficult to access and is operating in arctic conditions, which requires remote monitoring and control capabilities, as well as minimal maintenance. Our focus in the project is on the diagnostics and prognostics of the system.

DATAZERO

The goal of this project is to design a 1 MW datacenter entirely powered by renewable energy. This is achieved through a negotiation between the IT side and the electrical side, which is expected to help find a tradeoff between IT quality of service, costs and reliability. On the electric side, we consider PV panels, wind turbines, batteries and hydrogen storage in the form of an electrolyzer and a fuel cell. Our work is on system structure and interactions, modeling the microgrid with a focus on aging, and energy management.

MEAN4SG

This project is a European training network, which aims at training 11 PhD researchers in the field of smart grid metrology. Each PhD student, also called early stage researcher or ESR, is based at an institution and spends several months at three secondment institutions. He/she also participates in multiple dedicated training events. The work of the ESR is focused on supraharmonics, which are harmonics in the range of 2 to 150 kHz. The final aim is to design a calibration platform for the measurement of such signals.
