The project SmartNet aims at comparing different architectures for optimized interaction between TSOs and DSOs in managing the purchase of ancillary services (reserve and balancing, voltage regulation, congestion management) from subjects located in the distribution segment. An ad hoc simulation platform is built up over three layers (physical network, market and ICT) in order to simulate three national cases (Italy, Denmark, Spain); this simulation platform is then implemented in a full replica lab, where the performance of real controller devices is tested. Three physical pilots are also developed to demonstrate modalities for exchanging monitoring signals between transmission and distribution networks and flexibility services that can be offered by entities connected to distribution by exploiting thermal inertia of indoor swimming pools and distributed storage facilities of radio-base stations used for telecommunication.
The aim of the FP7 project OPTIMATE was to develop a simulation platform, i.e. to develop market simulation tools, with the aim to cope with massive renewable energy integration into the EU network.
The aim of the IEE-EU project Market4RES is to investigate the potential evolution of the EU electricity Target Model in order to secure the European power system decarbonisation with large amounts of renewables.
A full ADRRESS system has been tested in France , involving electricity producers and consumers as shown in the diagram below. The French field test focuses on the validation of the whole ADDRESS “value chain” going from Active Demand buyers to controllable appliances at consumers’ premises, but at a relatively small scale, with several tens of consumers, one MV feeder and several LV networks.
