• To increase power system security in scenarios with increasing share of renewables, enhancing fault detection
capabilities at regional level;
• To identify and apply most suitable methods for identification, measurement and damping inter-area oscillations,
specially focused on border connections;
• To design, test and demonstrate the associated communication architecture and specific protocols for the required
gathering of real-time measurements;
• To design, develop and evaluate the performance of a Wide-Area Measurement, Protection and Control system, focused
on cross-border areas, able to act as backup protection and contributing to damp inter-area oscillations.
