About MIGRATE (Massive InteGRATion of power Electronics)
In the future, both electricity production and consumption will increasingly be linked to the electricity grid through power electronics. This will lead to new challenges due to the large amounts of electricity fed into it from low carbon technologies.
MIGRATE, under the H2020 framework, aims to find solutions to key technical issues relating to grid stability, power quality, and grid protection.
MIGRATE is the only Tranmission Operator (TO) led project supported by academics and industrial partners. The project has been funded under the H2020 framework by the European Commission This will directly impact all European Union TOs in their business- as -usual activities, as their networks’ power electronic penetration grows.
The consortium members include European TOs from Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain and the U.K. SP Energy Networks is the only U.K. utility to be a part of the MIGRATE consortium.
SP Energy Networks is leading Work Package 2 which explores the current challenges facing our existing networks and addressing them with the commercially available infrastructure.
Our key outcomes have included solutions that address and demonstrate how we look at stability key performance indicators, and deploying the world’s first live trial of wide area monitoring, protection and control in the Icelandic network.
