FUNDACION CARTIF – CAR
Description of the organisation
Fundación CARTIF is a leading Spanish Applied Research Centre in terms of R&D and technology transfer activities created in 1994. CARTIF is formed up by some 150 researchers and Energy Division is one of the three main areas of knowledge and activity. CARTIF participation in international activities is promoted through the R&D Programmes Department and has been materialised in the current participation in 47 on-going international projects, including 20 projects from H2020 (4 of them coordinated). Additionally, CARTIF is one of the founding members and main promoters of the Smart City VyP initiative carried out in the Spanish cities of Valladolid and Palencia (http://www.smartcityvyp.com).
Role in the Project
CARTIF will be involved in the design and development of the smart control for multiple energy grids. They will work in the demand modelling, attending specially at the programming of prediction algorithms that will be used in the control. Also, related to the control, they will collaborate in developing and programming the multiobjective control algorithms for maximizing the selfconsumption in the grid and allow the interaction among grids according to the planning tool strategy. In the validation stage, CARTIF will support the deployment of the control in the defined demos. CARTIF will lead WP2 related to the Smart Control.
