Integration of Innovative Distributed Sensors and Actuators in Smart Grids

 iniGrid innovates the way electric energy is brought to end-use equipment by providing innovative sensor and actuator technology for actively managed and fault-protected distribution grids. Essential future functionalities such as dynamic management of line use as well as fault detection and fast service restoration are only possible with appropriate sensors and actuators in place. These sensors and actuators are missing today on the distribution level of a power grid. Radically new semiconductor-based components that will be developed by iniGrid, alongside the necessary IT and secure networking concepts, will address this shortcoming, and are aimed for commercial and grid applications.

About Lampros Fotiadis

Lampros Fotiadis MEng, MBA, was born in 1980 in Greece. His passion for engineering led him to receive his Engineer’s degree (MEng equivalent) from the Electrical and Computer Engineering school of the Aristotle University (Greece) in 2004. During his studies, he specialised in Electronics and Computer Engineering. In his diploma thesis, he simulated and implemented a multi-zone fuzzy-logic heating system using a real-time reconfigurable System-on-Chip. Pursuing a holistic approach to solving engineering problems, he successfully earned an MBA degree from the University of Macedonia (Greece) in 2006 and his master thesis examined the relation between European environmental policies and the European Energy market. He worked as an expert IT and Physical security consultant for more than 10 years and his expertise include system design and requirement analysis, system integration and product management. His recent areas of interests are Data Science, Machine Learning, Autonomous Driving and Smart Grids. Since February 2017 he is working as project member at the Institute of Computer Technology in the Energy&IT Group, where he is especially contributing know-how as IT and physical security consultant in the areas of smart grids and industry 4.0.
