Faculty of Electrical Engineering was awarded a project within the MSCA4Ukraine programme

International University Achievements

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the University of West Bohemia is one of 17 supported applicants from all over the Czech Republic.

As part of the European Union's response to the Russian Federation's invasion of Ukraine, a dedicated MSCA4Ukraine fellowship programme was announced in 2022 to support displaced researchers from Ukraine. Among the successful Czech projects is the Renewable energy sources and digital twin project, led by Milan Belik and Olena Rubanenko from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering UWB. The aim of the project is to optimize the operation of renewable energy sources, especially solar systems, in local and community energy networks, to apply renewable energy sources to networks operated in emergency mode with regard to stabilizing the ratios in individual nodes, and to model the parameters, properties, and operation of photovoltaic systems in particular in relation to creating a digital twin.

 The project will start on 1 April 2023 and will last 24 months.

The MSCA4Ukraine programme received more than 400 applications from 28 countries and supported a total of 124 researchers from 21 host countries, 17 of them in the Czech Republic.

The support will enable displaced Ph.D. students and postdocs to continue their work in academic and non-academic organizations in EU Member States and Horizon Europe-associated countries while maintaining links with Ukraine's research and innovation communities.
