ARCHITECTURE OF THE FUTURE LOW-CARBON, RESILIENT, ELECTRICAL POWER SYSTEM
As part of the government’s Strategic Science Investment Fund (SSIF) on Advanced Energy Technology Platform (AETP), we are investigating what the future electrical power system might look like. Our main hypothesis is that high penetration of DC transmission and distribution (conveyance) into the AC grid will provide many benefits to transition to a low-carbon power system. The major research challenge is to determine the future architecture, topology and a transition pathway. More information.
Short Form name of the project is Future Architecture of the Network (FAN) or Te Whatunga Hiko.
