The proposal for converters to assemble microgrids with storage, generation, and consumption points, combining and connecting, in series and in parallel, various amounts of modules to serve customers of all ages and powers is a great idea with great potential.
3. What is going to happen in the following months in your work?
As Talent enters the final stage of the project’s life, in the next months we will be collecting information on each task in which every partner has been involved. With this information, different indicators will be calculated to validate the work done.

The TALENT project has allowed us to build a cybersecurity laboratory specialized in testing DER equipment. This laboratory has enabled the development and testing of new technologies for the cyber-protection of EPES.
