The numerous changes in the power grid, due to the current and foreseeable increase of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) within the electrical network has resulted in a new perception of the modern distribution network. A key aspect in this regard is the efficient utilisation of flexibility in demand and generation. This paper focuses on the impact of RES when used to provide flexibility for grid management services. In the European project InterFlex, grid management services were offered in local flexibility markets in distribution networks. The results of the Scalability and Replicability Analysis (SRA) of the smart grid Dutch demonstration is presented. Furthermore, the challenges of replicating and analysing a real system based on a high number of interconnected tools, where seasonality effects and realistic large scale deployments which are to be forecasted, are considered and discussed [less ▲]

The evolution of the electrical power sector due to the advances in digitalization, decarbonization and decentralization has led to the increase in challenges within the current distribution network. Therefore, there is an increased need to analyze the impact of the smart grid and its implemented solutions in order to address these challenges at the earliest stage, i.e., during the pilot phase and before large-scale deployment and mass adoption. Therefore, this paper presents the scalability and replicability analysis conducted within the European project InteGrid. Within the project, innovative solutions are proposed and tested in real demonstration sites (Portugal, Slovenia, and Sweden) to enable the DSO as a market facilitator and to assess the impact of the scalability and replicability of these solutions when integrated into the network. The analysis presents a total of three clusters where the impact of several integrated smart tools is analyzed alongside future large scale scenarios. These large scale scenarios envision significant penetration of distributed energy resources, increased network dimensions, large pools of flexibility, and prosumers. The replicability is analyzed through different types of networks, locations (country-wise), or time (daily). In addition, a simple replication path based on a step by step approach is proposed as a guideline to replicate the smart functions associated with each of the clusters. [less ▲]
