Business Model Development (mid-term report)

DELIVERABLE - PDF — 3.41 MB — 02 Jul 2024

The main aim of this report is to review and adjust the former information included in previous “Business Model development (first report)”, in order to provide a more detailed map of the results expected and possible business models for each KER identified in TIGON project. The results obtained from the analysis done in this mid-term report will be then used as input for the final release within the “Business Model development (final report)” when the project ends.


Publishable report on the software application developments

DELIVERABLE - PDF — 3.40 MB — 20 Apr 2024

The present document serves as the final deliverable for Work Package 4 (WP4), focusing on software applications designed for the effective monitoring, control, and management of the power grid. The deliverable encompasses all the software developed within WP4, comprising the Wide Area Monitoring, Control, and Protection (WAMPAC) system. WAMPAC represents an innovative protection algorithm specifically designed for application in DC microgrids. Additionally, the deliverable includes the Energy Management System (EMS), tasked with overseeing and controlling the power system at the TIGON’s demonstration sites. It also incorporates the Decision Support System (DSS), which plays a crucial role in facilitating the accurate design and operation of hybrid grids. Finally, the document encompasses the Cybersecurity Defence System, an integral component of the overall project's security measures. Each of the software components corresponds to a specific task associated with WP4, collectively contributing to the project's overarching objectives.



Assessment of smart grid operation under emergency situations

TECHNICAL PUBLICATION - PDF — 954.07 KB — 13 Dec 2023

A new algorithm has been developed to maximise the autonomy of smart grids under emergency conditions. It prioritises renewable energy sources (RES) and utilises artificial neural networks which provide forecast related to intermittent RES production. Behind this development is Greece's Centre for Research and Technology (CERTH) working as part of TIGON. The authors have produced a paper on the subject. The preprint version is available here on the TIGON website. For subscribers to the publication Energy, Elsevier, an extended final version of the article is available at:      


Sustainable and Optimized Black Start in Microgrids

TECHNICAL PUBLICATION - PDF — 918.94 KB — 07 Jul 2023

This paper, produced by TIGON partner CERTH, won the Best Paper Award at the RTESE 2023 conference. It presents an optimization methodology to perform black start in microgrids after a blackout, utilizing the local storage systems and Renewable Energy Sources (RES).  


Microgrids and emergencies: how an optimal decision-support system helps operators


Greece's Centre for Research and Technology (CERTH) – partner in the European project TIGON – has produced a paper on optimal decision-support systems for microgrids and their use in emergencies. Entitled Decision Support System for Emergencies in Microgrids, the paper presents an optimal decision-support system (DSS) that assists the microgrid operator in various types of emergency, thus providing an inclusive solution. It was published in the MDPI journal Sensors with contributions from TIGON partners CARTIF and CIEMAT.



First Report on collaboration with other initiatives including BRIDGE

DELIVERABLE - PDF — 527.55 KB — 16 Nov 2022

The present report constitutes Deliverable D9.11 “FIRST Report on collaboration with other initiatives including BRIDGE”, developed within WP9 of TIGON. It maps the initiatives (for example BRIDGE) / collaborations with other projects that TIGON has had up to the date of submission of the deliverable. Two updates will follow as separate deliverables: at month 32, within D9.12 " Mid-term Report on collaboration with other initiatives including BRIDGE "- second draft and at month 48 within D9.13 "Final Report on collaboration with other initiatives including BRIDGE "- final version).
