Successful 3rd International Hybrid Power Systems Workshop in Tenerife/Spain

The third edition of the International Hybrid Power Systems Workshop that took place from 8 – 9 May 2018 exceeded all expectations with its 129 participants from 30 countries.

The workshop participants made good use of this unique opportunity to discuss the challenges that arise when high shares of renewables (wind, solar, hydro) are integrated into island power systems/micro-grids, in combination with conventional power generators and optionally batteries/flywheels. Finding viable combinations of conventional and renewable energy is one key solution for the efficient and sustainable running of these types of power systems.

These international experts convened to share their project experiences and to detect areas in need of improvement. With a total of 14 sessions and more than 50 presentations the spectrum of topics included in the Workshop ranged from hybrid system technologies and system modelling/simulation to intelligent control and grid stabilization as well as Mini-/Micro-Grid system design. Storage issues were covered as well as economic issues.

Beside the regular sessions the workshop also offered great networking opportunities like the Workshop Dinner at the conference venue, poster sessions and a study trip to the Institute of Technology and Renewable Energies (ITER).

We are happy to announce that presentations & papers are now available online. To get a first impression of the Workshop also have a look at the 2018 program and our online photo gallery.

Preview 4th International Hybrid Power Systems Workshop in April/May 2019

We are looking forward to discussing the challenges of Hybrid Power Systems, Micro-Grids, Isolated/Islanded Power Systems and inspiring ideas for the way that lies ahead.

The new Call for Papers for the fourth edition of the Hybrid Power Systems Workshop in 2019 will start in September/October 2018. Visit our Workshop website regularly for up-to-date information.
