Assessment of dynamic stability in a modern power system (PS) is becoming a stringent requirement both in operational planning and in on-line operation, due to the increasingly complex dynamics of a PS. Further, growing uncertainties in forecast state and in the response to disturbances suggests the adoption of risk-based approaches in Dynamic Security(More)
The exploitation of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) allows to reduce the electricity energy supplied by fossil fuelled power plants but introduces significant issues in power system planning and operation. Especially for small islanded systems, a larger share of load covered by RES, mainly wind and photovoltaic (PV) plants, implies lower inertia and reduced(More)

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC), easily culture-expanded from bone marrow, can significantly enhance bone defect healing. Several proteins, such as the bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) and in particular BMP-7, are involved in bone formation in vitro and in vivo. In this preclinical study, we evaluated if the association of human MSC (hMSC) with BMP-7 had(More)
The need to analyze high-impact low-probability events on power systems, due to natural and man-related threats calls for comprehensive approaches to security assessment, which exploit the concept of risk. The paper describes a probabilistic approach and a tool, developed in the EU research project AFTER, aimed at selecting the most critical contingencies(More)
