Smart Microgrids Madrid Community Program (PROMINT-CM)

Deployment and development of microgrids in urban areas


The PROMINT project is designed to investigate different aspects involved in the deployment and development of microgrids in urban areas

It is funded by the Community of Madrid with a grant for the implementation of programs of R&D activities among research groups of the Community of Madrid in "Tecnologías 2018", co-financed with the operational programs of the European Social Fund and the European Regional Development Fund, 2014-2020.



1. Design, simulation and evaluation of the communications layer for distributed power systems operating in microgrids

2. Modelling, control and energy management in hybrid DC/AC smart grids

3. Energy recovery in rail transport networks and their integration in urban microgrids

4. Design and implementation of an energy management system for hybrid renewable generation and battery storage systems

5. Machine learning applied to microgrids, electric vehicles and energy management

5 Participant Research Groups  


 Electronic Engineering Applied to Renewable Energy Systems (GEISER) Group 

Heuristics for Optimisation and Design of Communication Networks (GHEODE) Group

 Power Systems Control (GCP) Group  Electric Power Systems (GEA-IIT) Group Unit of Electrical Systems

 Most of the research groups participating in PROMINT were part of the PRICAM programme ("Programa Redes Eléctricas Inteligentes en la Comunidad de Madrid), funded by the Comunidad de Madrid in the "Tecnologías 2013" call. 

The previous PRICAM programme had the following results: 15 PhD tesis read, more than 80 publications in prestigious international journals, 9 researchers entered into the labour market, 50 papers in international congresses and 12 projects with companies from the colaboration with PRICAM.
