The PoSyCo project is scheduled to run from January 2019 to December 2021 and has a budget of 3.7 million euros. The Climate and Energy Fund is providing 2.5 million euros in funding. The goal of PoSyCo is to enhance the conventional network protection concept with an intelligent add-on. This SOFTprotection system is a tool designed to prevent overloads. At the same time, it creates new sources of information that facilitate improved analysis and faster diagnosis of faults. This represents a challenging but important step towards the smart grids of the future.
