Welcome to the 2nd International Workshop DynPOWER Dynamic Stability Challenges of the Future Power Grids

The impact and penetration of fluctuating renewable energy sources (RES) are drastically increasing, driven by the falling costs and the proactive expansion in emerging economies and will be continuing in future as part of a sustainable society.

Organized by Rafael Segundo and Petr Korba (SCCER-FURIES WP2 leader) and with financial support from SCCER-FURIES the international workshop is a free event that brings together a panel of experts from industry and academia all over Europe to debate and present what they are doing to overcome the future energy challenges from a dynamic stability perspective. The contributions will address challenges in monitoring, protection and control of the future power grid.
