Energy Systems – Digital Solutions - SP5
SP5 will develop generic methods, models and digital tools for analysis and optimisation of offshore energy systems with renewable energy supply, enabling cost-effective, reliable and stable design and operations of hybrid offshore energy systems with low or no CO2 emissions.
The focus is on power systems, but heat supply is also considered. A key output is digital solutions leveraging computing power, digital ecosystems and the huge amount of data among operators.
- Develop accurate methods and models for analysis of hybrid offshore energy systems.
- Assess power system performance issues through numerical simulations and laboratory experiments.
- Develop optimization methods, models and tools for low-emission offshore operations and planning.
