National Science Technology Program–Energy Project for Promoting and Managing Smart Grid Focus Center

Project Details


The developed platforms in second phase will be smart grid demonstration site in Penghu archipelago and virtual power plant demonstration site in Taiwan. Moreover, the developed strategy is from the development of products and systems to the establishment of smart grid standards and promotion of the smart grid inductries and finally to the products verifications and demonstration. The development objectives includes energy saving technologies, integration and enhancement of AMI, energy management of distributed energy resources, islanding operation of microgrid, strategic charging station management for electric vehicle, high power grid-connected converters, power quality improvement techniques for electric power transmission system, key technologies of wide-area measurement system (WAMS). Furthermore, the works of the establishment of smart grid standards and the promotion of smart grid industries are also extremely important. This project will carry out the duties of the office of smart grid according to the smart grid general project ratified by committee, Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) in 2016. This office will work on the planning of Taiwan’s future smart power grid, the implementation and analysis of Key Performance Index (KPI), analysis of economic benefits, international cooperation, international techniques conference, and coordination of related standards and norms, strategic planning and related administration. In addition, Smart Grid Focus Center has established a regular communication platform with Japan’s Open ADR Association, Amsterdam Smart City Office, Finland’s Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT), China’s The Chinese Institute of Electrical Engineering and China Electric Power Research Institute. This focus center also established the cooperation platform with multiple electric utilities in Southeast Asia. In order to promote the export of smart grid technologies and industries, this project is now actively conducting bilateral cooperation and international exchange cooperation of smart grid technologies.
