Pal-Grid: A Comprehensive Simulation Framework for the Palestinian Power Grid

Project Description

The aim of this project is to develop a comprehensive simulation framework for the Palestinian electric power network system with a focus on a specific area. The simulation framework should be able to capture the different aspects of the future energy supply.

The project will provide two levels of abstraction. The first simulation level will be very abstract and it helps the authorities, and especially the energy regulatory authority to take decisions to boost the penetration of renewable energy resources (RES) and improve the Palestinian power grid. Thus, the most important political, economic and technical characteristics and interactions will be addressed. This level of abstraction will provide the essential tools to compare and evaluate different scenarios to enhance of the Palestinian power grid for long planning horizons. The second model will be particularly characterized by a detailed modeling of the different components of a power system. Therefore, the power grid as well as the communication network will be addressed in this model. This will enable exploring ICT-enabled power grid application, i.e., the emerging smart grid applications.
