Activities of R&D Center
Power System Operation
We are conducting R&D mainly in the following fields on the power system operation.
Simulation and analysis
We are reproducing various phenomena on the power system with distributed generations and are evaluating new protection and control systems for the system with a variety of power system analysis programs and simulators.

Characteristics of photovoltaic power generation
We are studying the characteristics of intermittency of areal solar irradiance to evaluate the influence of distributed photovoltaic (PV) power generations on power systems, and developing a solar estimating and forecasting method applied to a single PV system and/or the aggregation of large numbers of PV systems spread over the Kansai area.
