Core competencies

URL: http://redcrit.unizar.es
GE3 is a research group from University of Zaragoza, Spain, with long expertise in the development of models for the vulnerability assessment of electric and gas critical infrastructures against random failures and intentional attacks, including application to real systems. Our team is composed of 13 senior researchers and a number of junior researchers coming from different countries.
Our technical skills include artificial intelligence tools and mathematical models applied to energy systems analysis: risk management methodologies, vulnerability assessment, infrastructure robustness, resilience improvement, reliability evaluation, smart grids optimal dispatch, impact of energy markets on system operation, renewable virtual plants, MCDM energy planning, among others.
We actively collaborate with utilities and public agencies on energy security.
At this moment, we are working in a novel research project to replace the computational tools of classical power flows for contingency analysis of electrical grids by new methods based on the theory of complex networks, applied to the vulnerability analysis of interdependent topologies. This approach allows faster study of infrastructure resilience to contingencies N-k, that is, to cascading failures in energy networks. The methodology is applied to the actual gas and electricity transmission networks in Spain to identify the critical elements of both systems and draw conclusions about the effectiveness of proposed investment plans by the corresponding transmission systems operators. This project is financed by Ministerio de Economia, Industria y Competitividad, Spain (ENE2016-77172-R).
We are willing to join H2020 consortiums that look for our expertise.
