Politecnico di Torino and Shianghai Jiao Tong University signed the agreement for the creation of the Joint Centre for Energy Transition, Modelling and Simulation. The Joint Centre, coordinated by prof. Ettore Bompard and prof. Zheng Yan, at Italian and Chinese sides respectively, in Torino will be hosted inside Energy Center and it lies within the ambitious connection activity of Energy Center – lab with a network of international prestigious laboratories. It will represent an international pole completely dedicated to the study of the energy transition, thanks to the use of the most advanced modelling techniques. The centre will be based on a joint laboratory able to perform real-time simulations at global scale, creating connections through an IT tunelling among the laboratories of the two universities, in order to model and simulate energy systems (with a particular attention on electrical systems) in the view of the emerging energy transition.
As a first trial, a connection between the two Opal‐RT simulators in GRTSLab of EC‐L at Politecnico di Torino and State Energy Smart Grid R&D Center at Shanghai Jiao Tong University was established and successfully tested.
