Comparing atmospheric transport models for future regional inversions over Europe – Part 1: mapping the atmospheric CO2 signals
The CO2 source and sink distribution across Europe can be estimated in principle through inverse methods by combining CO2 observations and atmospheric transport models. Uncertainties of such estimates are mainly due to insufficient spatio-temporal coverage of CO2 observations and biases of the models. In order to assess the biases related to the use of different […]

Small Dams in Italy
Aim of the Working Group activated by the Italian Committee of Large Dams is to review and discuss the current situation of the “Small Dams” in Italy. Regulatory supervision of “Small Dams” (height <15 m and reservoir volume <1.000.000 m3) is carried out by Regional Authorities on the base of local regulations and guidelines, with […]

Linking Europe to Africa through long distance HVDC submarine interconnectors: methodology applied to the feasibility study and technical challenges to be overcome
HVDC  links  are  becoming  an  increasingly  popular  solution  to  interconnect  previously  isolated systems or to establish new corridors within highly meshed networks. As a matter of fact, HVDC links show outstanding advantages with respect to HVAC corridors such as full controllability of power flow avoiding the creation of parallel or, even, loop flows in meshed […]

Analysis on the possible conversion of overhead lines from AC to DC
The wide diffusion of Distributed Generation (DG) represents a possible development of modern electrical systems that can evolve towards “Smart-grids. In fact, Smart-Grids should manage energy production and loads in a smart way, through appropriate communication systems and applications to be designed for the scope. Moving in this direction, Enel Distribuzione, built up a new […]

The new DTS for the italian transmission system disparcher: organization, architecture, tools and functionalities
The complexity of power system operation, has increased over the past few decades, also due to sector liberalization and market introduction, and requires a growing level of training and responsiveness to control room operators. In this framework, the role of a Dispatcher Training Simulator (DTS) is essential. Its purpose is to replicate, with a suitable […]
