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 ▲]

This discussion paper is intended to present the range of optimisers developed in the SynErgie project and to go into more detail on the methodological aspects. In this discussion paper, a distinction is made between optimisers on the company platform and on the market platform. On the company platform, the goal is to ensure optimal operation of the plants, so that in addition to energy, other operational key figures are included in the analysis. These include various optimisers from production planning and control (PPC), which, in addition to energy costs, also track logistical target variables, such as the on-time delivery of products, as key figures. In addition to the production systems, the facilities of the technical building equipment (TGA) are also optimised on the company platform. Furthermore, within the discussion paper, we differentiate between energy-oriented and energy-flexible optimisation. Energy-oriented optimisation, pursues the goal of minimise energy costs, uses information from the energy markets, such as electricity price forecasts. With flexible optimisation, for example, flexibilities are determined or scheduled, which can then be transmitted to the market. The discussion paper also deals with the optimisation services of the optimisation services of the market platform, which determines the optimal marketing opportunity for the determined. The optimiser calculates the optimal time for different markets in order to maximise the proceeds of the maximise the revenue of the flexibility offered or minimise the costs. Should a flexibility provider decide to use a service to take over the marketing of his flexibility measure, information on the flexibility is transmitted between the flexibility is transmitted between the service and the company in order to be able to implement the measure in the company.

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 ▲]

The energy flexibility data model developed within the framework of SynErgie is used for the generic and standardised description and modelling of energy flexibility. The data model enables (partially) automated information technology processing of a wide variety of flexibility. The aim is to develop a comprehensive data model to map flexibility in a flexibility space and concrete flexibility measures. The aim is not to create a completely realistic representation of a flexibility. The focus is on mapping technically and energetically relevant information in a granularity that enables the communication of flexibility between industrial companies and energy markets. [less ▲]

The Energy Synchronisation Platform (ESP) maps the entire process of information-automated energy flexibility trading from the machine to the energy market. The ESP is thus the overall concept that enables industrial demand flexibility. This discussion paper on the ESP reference architecture is an update of an older version presented in Reinhart et al. (2020). Since then, the development of individual services has been discontinued and the market platform (MP) is no longer designed as a broker architecture. It now serves as the first point of contact between industrial companies and service providers and takes on an intermediary role. The Enterprise Platform (UP) thus takes on a more important role in terms of communication within ESP, as all communication with services now takes place via the UP. Furthermore, in this detailed discussion paper we provide a collection of the different services that have been developed within SynErgie for the MP and the UP. Each service presented includes a brief description, the relevant inputs and outputs, and other relevant comments. Furthermore, an overview of the primary reference processes considered for the operation and marketing of flexibility is provided. These are presented on the basis of three possible use cases. Thus, logic and interactions of the different processes within the ESP are shown [less ▲]

Information and Communication Technology (ICT) infrastructures are at the heart of emerging Smart Grid scenarios with high penetration of Distributed Energy Resources (DER). The scalability of such ICT infrastructures is a key factor for the large scale deployment of the aforementioned Smart Grid solutions, which could not be ensured by small-scale pilot demonstrations. This paper presents a novel methodology that has been developed in the scope of the H2020 project InteGrid, which enables the scalability analysis of ICT infrastructures for Smart Grids. It is based on the Smart Grid Architecture Model (SGAM) framework, which enables a standardized and replicable approach. This approach consists of two consecutive steps: a qualitative analysis that aims at identifying potential bottlenecks in an ICT infrastructure; and a quantitative analysis of the identified critical links under stress conditions by means of simulations with the aim of evaluating their operational limits. In this work the proposed methodology is applied to a cluster of solutions demonstrated in the InteGrid Slovenian pilot. This pilot consists of a Large Customer Commercial Virtual Power Plant (VPP) that provides flexibility in medium voltage for tertiary reserve and a Traffic Light System (TLS) to validate such flexibility offers. This approach creates an indirect Transmission System Operator (TSO)—Distribution System Operator (DSO) coordination scheme. [less ▲]
