Direct current microgrids to be tested in Europe’s power system

The Horizon 2020 supported project Tigon is focussed on deploying DC-based grid architectures that can improve the reliability and resilience of a decentralized and renewables-based system.

TIGON will develop a set of flexible and replicable hardware and software solutions to optimize the control, operation and protection of DC grids while providing ancillary services to the main network, Jesús Muñoz, TIGON coordinator and power electronics engineer at Spanish research centre Fundación CIRCE, told Smart Energy International.
