The Event

Distribution System Operators (DSOs) are the companies in charge of the MV/LV grids, dispatching electricity to the final consumers, and ensuring adequate power quality standards throughout the whole infrastructure. However, their role is rapidly evolving, as the share of active users and distributed energy resources (DERs) deployed in the network is continuously growing — thus requiring a more complex and flexible operation at a local level.

We will talk about the role of DSOs in modern networks with Marco Vanzetto, remote control and operation manager for the HV/MV grid at AgegasApsAmga in Trieste. In particular, dr. Vanzetto will explain how distributors handle contingencies caused by extreme natural events, such as the wildfire that occured in the Carso region on July 2022.

How to attend

The event will take place on April 27 at 4:30 PM, in Room Arduino of the Department of Geoscience (Via Gradenigo 6). Admission is free, and open to everyone. The lecture will be held in English, and it will last for about 50 minutes, followed by a 30-minute Q&A session. Energy students who are interested in learning more about LEDS’ activities can stay after 6 PM to chat with our members.
