Professor at University of Tunis El Manar Ecole Nationale d’Ingénieurs de Tunis (ENIT) Laboratory of Electrical Systems Head of QehnA research Team.
keynote speech : “Power qualities issues in residential distribution network integrating photovoltaic and storage“.
The continual increasing of photovoltaic rooftop systems and the changes in the nature of loads lead to new power quality issues and bring new challenges to residential distribution network. Several solutions are under study to provide ancillary services to support distribution grids, such as smart inverters, synchronverter, distributed storage smart transformer. Such investigations should involve new tools and methods to demonstrate the effectiveness of developed methods and concepts, and also new energy technologies.
The keynote addresses technical and technological challenges of residential distribution network integrating photovoltaic and local storage with examples from PlaNeTE platform built at the ENIT School, which will be described. This PlaNeTE platform is flexible, modular and scalable and allows laboratory validations through HIL and PHIL.
