INESC TEC participates in a project about electrical interconnections between the South of Europe and the North of Africa

The INESC TEC’s Centre for Power and Energy Systems started this month with the MedTSO project. The project proposes to evaluate the viability and the technical impact of the construction of several electrical interconnections between the South of Europe and the North of Africa.

The study intends to evaluate interconnections through a submarine cable and by land, in two main corridors. Considering the east corridor, it will analyse interconnections from the eastern European zone involving interconnections between Egypt and Turkey and the Balkans through a submarine cable and by land. On the west corridor, it will analyse the interconnections between Portugal and Spain with Morocco and Algeria and Italy with Algeria and Tunisia.

The interconnections yet to implement can be developed in Alternating Current or Continuous Current and may require the reinforcement of the land network infrastructure in several countries, particularly in the Balkans.

All these aspects will be evaluated according to different scenarios of electricity production and consumption in the Mediterranean basin.

The INESC TEC researchers responsible for this project, established with the Association of the Mediterranean Transmission System Operators – MedTSO, are Leonel Carvalho and João Peças Lopes.

The researchers mentioned in this news piece are associated with INESC TEC and UP-FEUP.
