Smart Cities EMC Network for Training.

The global vision of Smart and Sustainable Cities is greatly restricted by the rapid increase of interference and interoperability problems which occur through the interaction of electrical power with information technology and communications equipment. This interconnected systems-of-systems infrastructure creates a complex electromagnetic environment in which interoperability of the electronic systems has to be achieved. Read more...


SCENT is divided into several projects, called Work Packages, to keep our work focused and consistent.

Objective: Successful and efficient project execution according to work plan, maintenance of relations between partners and ESRs, communication management, finance and reporting.

Objective: Create a European Doctoral/Graduate School for EMC, incl. PQ, with a focus on conducted emissions, susceptibility and harmonics; Develop structural doctoral programme for future generation of researchers/engineers active in Europe; Change the mind-set of researchers and engineers from power frequency-design to holistic power quality.

Objective: Disseminate the results of SCENT to the academic, teaching, industrial and public communities in Europe. Establish a solid exploitation plan for future market introduction of power quality and EMC design. Embed the SCENT doctoral programme in the institutional/regular Graduate schools.

Objective: These are dissemination and communication initiatives directed at the general public with the primary goal to create awareness of the importance of research to society and to raise awareness of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, based on the principle ‘’public engagement’’ of the 'European Charter for Researchers'.

Objective: Develop new models and simulate such devices as electronic inverters driving motors (which also can act as a generator during braking), electronic loads such as computers, displays, dimmers and LEDs.

Objective: Develop validated models and simulations of power distribution grids inside buildings and complex networks for the assessment of EMC and Power Quality.

Objective: To experimentally characterise and evaluate distribution networks and their equipment.

Objective: To deliver the validated set of tools and expert systems using statistical techniques for complex systems for PQ and EMC and determination of risk of interference.
