Work Packages

PROGRESSUS is organised in 7 Work Packages (WPs), as depicted in Figure 18. Five of these workpackages, WP1 to WP5, which follow the sequence of a classical development process are embedded into the dissemination, communication, exploitation and standardization work package (WP6) and overall into the project management work package (WP7).

Power Conversion

Whereas power management are the “brains” for smart grids, power conversion technology provides the “muscles” for them enabling true smart power management and acting as the linking pin between electricity transport grids, local grids, all electric powered applications, (renewable) energy sources and short/long term storage facilities.

Energy Management

PROGRESSUS aims to deliver highly efficient energy management systems applied to microgrid cases (e.g. charging infrastructures and real estates), targeting to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and peak power consumption from the grid.

Metrology & Monitoring

The basis for the grid smartness, the flexibility management and services such as payment and pricing are sensors, metrology and monitoring solutions to retrieve,
