On 6 September 2017 the public workshop “Designing and validating future intelligent electric power systems” gathered in Kassel (DE) over 70 stakeholders in the domain of distributed energy resources and smart grids. Co-organised by SIRFN, ERIGrid, ELECTRA IRP, EERA JP Smart Grids, DERlab and Fraunhofer IWES, the event garnered attention of participants from multiple networks and enabled fruitful exchange of ideas on the crossroads of objectives in each project and network.

- Enhanced lab-based testing methods and tools, Oliver Gehrke (DTU)
- Wrap-up, summary and conclusions, Cyndi Moyo (AIT)
- Microgrid in system operation- tasks and testing needs, Thomas Degner, Wolfram Heckmann (IWES)
- NREL microgrid challenge, Blake Lundstrom (NREL)
- Role of microgrids research in future power system research, Changhee Cho (KERI)
Taking place at the premises of Fraunhofer IWES, the workshop included a lab tour around the testing facility SysTec one of the facilities provided for free open access within the ERIGrid Transnational Access programme. Therefore the workshop participants had a unique opportunity of a guided tour and a live demonstration of the laboratory’s testing capabilities.
The application deadline for the current ERIGrid call for Transnational Access ends on 15 November 2018.
