Distribution Systems

Analysis, monitoring and optimising Energy Distribution Systems and meeting the new challenges presented by efficiency requirements, environmental worries and the growth of the electricity markets.

At the Centre for Power and Energy Systems (CPES) we have experience in Research and Development (R&D) from projects based on the analysis, monitoring and optimisation of energy distribution systems that allow us to work in the following areas:

  • Network analysis;
  • Optimising finding capacitor batteries and reclosers;
  • Optimising network use through reconfiguration and reactive management; 
  • Optimising the restoration of services following system failures;
  • Long and medium-term load forecasting on a global level or for feeder lines;
  • Characterising consumers and defining typical levels of consumption;
  • Characterising networks;
  • Estimating and reducing losses.

We at CPES are also active in new areas that can respond to the challenges presented by emerging electricity markets, such as:

  • Analysing the conformity of procedures associated with reconciliation processes;
  • Determining profiles for consumption, losses and microgeneration;
  • Establishing Loss Adjustment Factors.
