Flexible AC distribution systems (FACDS)

The FACDS project is due to run for 30 months (until August 2018), with some EUR 1.1 million of funding from the Climate and Energy Fund. It defines useful functions of future decentralised storage systems in electrical distribution networks through simulation validation at the system and component levels, accompanied by a laboratory validation of the inverter systems. The main focus is on the real implementation of pilot facilities in the ASCR testbed.
