LUCS: Learning to Understand and Control nation-wide Smart grids of energy prosumers

The educational objective of LUCS is to provide knowledge and experience that will assist Masters and early doctoral students with experiment design and performance analyses of smart grid systems. The research-related objectives of LUCS are to facilitate interaction of researchers for the purpose of: 

  1. Integrating and developing a communication-smart grid testbed, 
  2. Use this testbed to investigate the performance bounds of today's smart grid systems, and 
  3. Developing and implementing novel approaches to improve the performance and robustness of the smart grid systems.

Final goal

LUCS will conduct four main activities:

  • Organize 3 summer schools
  • Develop a common smart grid curriculum at University of Oslo and Technical University of Berlin
  • Organize yearly research workshops
  • Sponsor the mobility of researchers to strengthen the group collaboration

All of these activities rely on the development of an integrated testbed based on the partners' existing testbeds.
