MICROGRID Project

The MICROGRID project is a collaborative research project funded by Croatian Science Foundation, concerning optimization of renewable electricity generation systems connected in a microgrid. In the project execution participate 6 different research groups from 4 institutions. Overall project duration is 36 months, in period from January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2014.


The 1st ACROSS Workshop on...

The international workshop "The 1st ACROSS Workshop on Cooperative Renewable Energy Systems" will be held on November 22, at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, Grey Hall. Workshop is organized by FP7 project ACROSS -- Centre of Research Excellence for Advanced Cooperative Systems, under sponsorship of Control Systems Society Chapter and Power and Energy Society Chapter, IEEE Croatian Section. Within this workshop also Microgrid project will be presented, both orally and via a poster. Technical program of the workshop can be found in news sequel.

Detailed technical program is available through this link.
