2021 JUL 20 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at NewsRx Science Daily -- Data detailed on applied sciences have been presented. According to news reporting out of Kosice, Slovakia, by NewsRx editors, research stated, “To reduce emissions worldwide, decarbonization has also affected for power engineering and its conventional methods of power generation, distribution, and transmission.”

Financial supporters for this research include Slovak Research and Development Agency APVV.

The news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Technical University: “This fact affects not only the production of power and supply itself, but also other parts related to it, namely systems for the protection of electricity generation facilities and the location of faults in distribution networks and transmission systems. Is this new technology of renewable energy sources (RES) mastered enough to be able to replace traditional methods of energy generation reliably and safely? If we can answer the previous question, we could proceed to the next phase of putting these technologies into practice, considering the actual state of distribution networks and transmission systems. The aim of the article will be to evaluate the current state of systems and production sources of electricity in the Slovak Republic and to provide a better insight and suggestions for rebuilding current networks on a smart grid.”

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: “The proposals will also include models of some RES in the Matlab/Simulink software.”
