The Centre for Power and Energy Systems (CPES) is INESC TEC’s main actor in the areas of electrical
energy. The Centre employs close to 70 collaborators, including 16 PhD holders. It is internationally recognised for its expertise in problems relating to the integration of wind power and renewable energy in general in power systems. CPES is also recognised in the areas of distributed generation and smart-grids, the areas traditionally associated with planning and operating power systems.
Integration of renewable energy sources in transmission systems – development of studies for the Portuguese and Spanish TSOs to evaluate reserve requirements of each system through reliability analysis, with large scale integration of renewable sources; participation in EU project ANEMOS.PLUS on the optimal management of electricity grids linked to large-scale wind power generation; and development of steady-state and dynamic behaviour analysis for the integration of wind parks for wind park developers.
