During three days, the University of Manchester was the environment for the formidable course on "Protection Future Networks with Dispersed Generation". More than 20 participants, coming from more than 10 countries, including high-level enterprise partners, research centres and universities has participated in this important course: Belgian HV system operator Diegem (Belgium) Rolls-Royce plc (UK), OMICRON electronics (Austria), Mott MacDonald LTD (Dubai), Ricerca sul Sistema Energetico-RSE SpA (Italy), Schneider Electric Energy (UK), Catalonia Institute for Energy Research (IREC), INFRAX (Belgium), Automation R&D Alstom Grid, University of Genova, Technical University of Sofia (Bulgaria), Ngee Ann, Polytechnic (Singapore), KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm (Sweden), University of Strathclyde (UK).

This course was organized by the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of the University of Manchester and the European Distributed Energy Resources Laboratories (BERlab) under the concept of the Electric Energy System University Training Partnership (EES-UETP).

Prof. Peter Crossley, The University of Manchester, UK

Prof Vladimir Terzija has been the course leader with the help of his research group, and the list of course speakers has included a very good list of experts in subjects as protection, automation and smart grid. He talked about several issues as: load modelling, state estimation, fault location, arc modelling, intelligent control islading, eraly frequency estimation and several areas under developing for the research group members. Special laboratory demonstrations were prepared by the research member

 Mr Pawel Regulski and Prof Terzija during laboratory demonstration.

Prof V. Terzija has demonstrated the importance of the ICT integration into the scheme protection of future power system during his presentation.

Mr Fabrizio Garrone talking abour the ICT implementations aspects for smart-grids

The innovation in the field of protection devices and principles was perfectly explained by MSc Peter Vasessen from KEMA, he has remarked a lot of interesting issues regarding the deployment of high level technologies in the future scenarios of 2020 and 2050. The high penetration of Electric Vehicles (EV) into the future networks will imply huge challenges for all participants into the electrical business and the super-grid concept is something that require be analysed carefully  in terms of technologies development. Dr Campbel Booth has explained the issues associated with the distributed generation integration and he presented some issues related to the future networks.

Mr Fabrizio Garrone has addressed the important concept of cyber risk and security in the development of the future smart-grids; the main issues related to the implementation of ICT for smart-grid protection have been discussed and some simulations about the cyber-risk associated to the protection schemes has been presented.

The impact of the Distributed Energy Resources (DER) on the distribution system protection has be addressed by Mr Niels Shaefer. The famous professor Peter Crossley has talked about the advanced protection system and he pointed out special issues related to the under frequency load shedding (UFLS) in the future networks.
