R&D NESTER hosted the FLEXITRANSTORE ( European project meeting, which took place at its headquarters at Sacavém.

This meeting took place in the context of the participation of R&D NESTER's team, which includes the researchers Ricardo Pastor and Nuno Amaro, in the tasks of the Work Package associated to one of the 8 demonstrators of the project - "Demo 8 - Advanced Control for flexible synchronous generation".

This demonstrator focuses on the development of a new adaptive Power System Stabilizer (PSS) model that allows damping of low frequency oscillations of the system in a more effective way through the use of new techniques for network behaviour prediction in the context of high share of renewable generation. This demo will be validated in a real cogeneration (combined heat and power - CHP) power plant in Bulgaria.

R&D NESTER has a central role in this work package, since it will develop, both the network model of the area of influence of the power plant (part of the transmission network of the Bulgarian system), and one of the network behaviour prediction models, which will be used for the tuning of the adaptive PSS.

R&D NESTER will make use of its Real-Time Power System Simulator (RTPSS) lab (, where it will develop the network model and the prediction algorithms, testing them as they were observing the real network.

Several project partners involved in this work package participated in the meeting, including Schneider Electric (Spain), Loyola (Spain) and Chalmers (Sweden) Universities, and the manufacturer of signal acquisition and analysis systems STER (Croatia).
