Significance for science
Power system planning and analysis play an important role in power system development. Due to the vital role electric power systems have in the modern society, these areas of research are of significant interest. With the rapid advances in transmission and generation technologies and the ever-increasing power consumption, efficient and fast solutions to emerging problems are required. In accordance with the research program group (the Group) past work, its references and set priorities, the focus of the research program are the high priority problems that play a major role in the operation and development of the Slovenian power system. Due to the specific nature of individual power system development, our priorities also include adjusting the current solutions to the needs of the national power system. In the following research areas, the most important achievements for the development of science have been reached. • development of facts device models, necessary for direct power system analysis methods, • development of facts device models, necessary for direct power system analysis methods, • development of a new method for power flow calculations in power systems containing controllable devices, which improves considerably the existing ones, • increase of power system transmission capacity, • development of a real time (on-line) power system stability index assessment program, • development of modern compensation control device regulation algorithms, • development of a method to determine the location of event sources and its responsible party, and methods to increase power system quality, • development of an active distribution network concept, • new local method for voltage instability prediction, • development of ancillary services market models, • new probabilistic methods for power consumption and electricity price forecasting, • new theory of feeding of electric wehicles from renewables, which enables increased number of such users in existing or non-essentially changed power network, • development of available daylight luminance prediction method, based on location, meteorological information and satellite images. The methods and procedures developed in the research program, follow the goal of improving EPS analysis methods, finding new and efficient ways of handling EPS operation problems, EPS weak link prediction methods, improvements of the quality of the supplied energy to the consumers while achieving efficient energy conservation, as well as taking into account improved system adequacy and socio-economic and environmental issues.
Significance for the country
Electric power systems play a major role in providing reliable power supply to all consumers, which is the basis of modern society and plays a significant role in socio-economic and cultural development of Slovenia. The scientific developments in this area directly affect all involved parties in the Slovenian energy sector, ranging from power production companies, transmission and distribution system operators, equipment manufacturers and suppliers, regulatory bodies to research and education institutes. The answer to key questions and challenges that power systems will bring in the future is of vital importance in the sustainable economic development and the development of Slovenia as the society of knowledge. In accordance to one of the vital proposals of the European Commission i.e. Climate Action that sets an overall binding target for the European Union, Slovenia has to raise its renewable energy production considerably. The goal is to reach 25 % penetration of renewable energy by 2020. The goals for all member states are a great challenge and opportunity. The achievement of the goal is possible with higher energy efficiency and stimulating the use of renewable energy sources and new technologies. All these factors are directly linked with the research program research areas. The main impact of our work can be seen in the following development areas: • To ensure higher reliability and security of the EPS. • Efficient incorporation of renewable energy sources and distributed generation (DG) into existing EPS. It is important to keep in mind that to incorporate a larger amount of renewable energy sources and DG, EPS has to be adopted to incorporate them. • To increase energy production from renewable sources with low carbon emissions, and consequentially adapt the structure and mode of operation of the whole EPS. • To ensure better inclusion of EPS into Pan-European electrical energy market and prepare for its challenges. • Development of new services to enable better integration of demand response into EPS management (e.g. demand side management and incorporation of DG and autoproducers into EPS). • To use modern lighting and automation of buildings, significantly decreasing the use of electrical energy. • Development of the research group and fusion of knowledge will enable evolution of analyses and development of EPS, new innovations, technological progress and improve broad collaborations with other institutions in the power sector. • While the existing research program groups incorporate some aspects of the energy sector, the field of power systems was mainly not yet covered. We therefore propose a new research group that would specifically cover the power systems. • The results will provide for an exact specification of secondary EPS equipment, mostly developed by small and medium companies from Slovenia in the field of information technology and power electronic. • The research results will also enable integration of developed models into actual process in control centers, company managements, new development strategies etc. • Members of proposed research group all work in academic sphere (assistants or professors), therefore the proposed research work would directly and positively influence quality of study. • Findings, based on research of this group, will enable development of corresponding regulation that will enable sustainable development and evolution of EPS according to the modern directives of power sector. New programs for power sources development and integration of renewable sources in the EPS will decrease Slovenian dependence on import of electrical energy, while programs on power system network planning constrained with new environmental directives will reduce its impact on natural heritage.
