CESI’ MODEL ON ENERGY STORAGE
CESI has published a new paper in which describes a Mixed Integer Linear-constrained Programming (MILP) model to simulate battery energy storage systems behavior within the Italian ancillary services market. The main purpose of the tool is to investigate the economic viability of storage technologies in the provision of network services. Comparing the proposed model to the […]
Testing Labs
Low Voltage Testing Services
Our independent physical verification of LV panels is 100% based on testing, covering mechanical, dielectric, short circuit and temperature rise effects. It verifies all the normal and fault conditions your panel will experience in real-world operation. We carry out low voltage tests on panels in our own labs against the IEC 61439-1 international standard at […]
Testing Labs
Low Voltage Type Testing
KEMA LABS provide independent hands-on verification of LV panels based entirely on rigorous testing. We test for mechanical, dielectric, short circuit and temperature rise effects covering all the potential conditions your panels will go through in day-to-day operation. Our labs test panels against the IEC 61439-1 international standard at both 50 Hz and 60 Hz […]

Low Voltage Switchgear Assemblies and Switching Devices
For low voltage switchgear and controlgear assemblies (lv panels), quality means safety. Poor quality can lead to power outages, fires or injury, so contractors need to have complete trust in the components they buy. Our testing approach and type test certificates provide the trusted evidence you need to convince your customers of the quality of […]

Evaluation of the energy storage systems impact on the Italian ancillary market
The increasing of Renewable Energy Source (RES) generation requires power systems to become more flexible, in order to manage injections variability and uncertainty at various timeframes. Energy storage systems , such as electrochemical technologies, represent a broadly deployable asset, which could support effectively RES deployment. The present paper describes a Mixed Integer Linear-constrained Programming (MILP) […]

Storage & E-mobility
Storage infrastructures
Electrical power systems around the world are changing significantly and swiftly thanks to an energy transition that is mainly driven by the rapid increase of renewable energy sources (RES) and the evolution of generation and transmission technologies. Such changes require an innovative framework at system level to cope with emerging challenges and to take advantage […]
Advisory services
Planning studies
The ongoing decarbonization of power systems is affecting them in a variety of ways, including: a (r)evolution in the generation mix, the rise of distributed generation, the deployment of energy storage capacity, enhanced interconnections between countries and more integrated power markets. In addition, the electrification of sectors that still rely on fossil fuels is changing […]
Transmission & Distribution
Grid Modernisation
Intelligence has been integral to electricity grids since their inception: supervision, control and protection have always been key activities for system operators. So, what’s different about the smart grid? Grids are becoming more complex for a variety of reasons, including the roll-out of distributed generation, changes in customer behavior (including the rise of the ‘prosumer’) […]
Storage & E-mobility
E-mobility infrastructures
The electrification of transport is expected to significantly contribute to decarbonization. From private cars to corporate fleets, from public transport to commercial mobility, the whole system will have to be transformed, particularly in terms of managing supply and integrating electric vehicles into the power grid. CESI’s deep expertise in power grids and power markets, as […]

Long-time behaviour of exposed geomembranes used for the upstream face rehabilitation of concrete and masonry dams
​The use of exposed geomembranes for the rehabilitation of concrete and masonry dams was introduced in Italy in 1976, when the entire upstream face of a 11 m high masonry dam was lined with a 2 mm thick PVC (polyvinyl chloride) geomembrane as waterproofing element (Lago Miller).In the following applications (among which Lago Nero, 1980; […]
CHALFONT LABORATORIES JOINS CESI
Milan, March 2, 2020 – The change in ownership of the Chalfont (USA) Laboratories’ from DNV GL to CESI has completed today. The independent testing facility in Chalfont is the largest of its kind in the United States. It features 1000 MVA and 2500 MVA short-circuit generators; a 1500 kV impulse generator; a 600-kV power […]
