Cross-border integration of automatic frequency restoration reserve markets with demand response and distributed generation

This first work package encompasses the core research activities to be performed. Its objectives are therefore to detail the requirements for demand response and distributed generation in aFRR markets, and to design cross-border balancing and redispatching mechanisms tailored to congested borders based on a common activation function for cross-border balancing and redispatching. The design will be tested and configured based on modelling and simulation.

1.1 Requirements for DR & DG participation in aFRR Markets

1.2 Cross-border balancing and redispatching mechanisms tailored to congested borders situation and design of a Common Activa Prototype Regional Balancing and Redispatching Platform

1.3 Data needed to implement the common activation function

Prototype demand response and distributed generation flexibility aggregation platforms for automatic frequency restoration reserve

In the second work package, novel automatic frequency restoration reserve functionalities will be specified, developed, prototyped and validated, according to the needs and expectations of the transmission system operators and the retailers/aggregators. It focus so that flexibility aggregation platforms of independent companies are advanced to support the automatic frequency restoration reserve services as well as the interfaces to the regional balancing and redispatching Platform prototype and provide state of the art services to the commercial and industrial consumers and distributed generators.

2.1 Specification of the automatic frequency restoration reserve functionalities of quantify the technology and economic
impacts of the pilot tests performed by the consortium flexibility aggregation platforms

2.2a Initial novel automatic frequency restoration reserve software suite

2.2b Novel automatic frequency restoration reserve software suite including experience feedback from pilot tests

2.3 Validation report of prototyped automatic frequency restoration reserve software suite

2.4 Report on trustful ICT connections between national automatic frequency restoration reserve systems

Prototype regional platform with common activation function for automatic frequency restoration reserve

The third work package specifies and protoypes the regional balancing and redispatching platform including related transmission system operator functions and analytical/operational data warehouse. To enable this, a novel common real-time processing function is specified, developed and parametrized for the transmission system operators; based on the construction of a secure connections for required external interfaces and a solid scalability and interoperability for real-time operation.

3.1 Specification of the prototype Regional Balancing and Redispatching Platform

3.2 Prototype Regional Balancing and Redispatching Platform

3.3 Specifications of the common real-time processing function

3.4 Common real-time processing function, integrated into the TSO Environment and Prototype Regional Balancing and Redispatching Platform

3.5 Report on offline testing of the Regional Balancing and Redispatching Platform, including the common real-time processing function

3.6 Report on trustful ICT connections between at the Regional Balancing and Redispatching Platform level

Definition of use cases and key performance indicators and assessment of pilot tests

The fourth workpackage defines use cases to test the prototype demand response and distributed generation flexibility aggregation platforms and the prototype regional balancing and redispatching platform. Performance indicators and experimental measurements are proposed to validate the scaling up and replication of the innovative solutions. Additionally, the prototype demand response and distributed generation flexibility aggregation platforms and the prototype regional balancing and redispatching platform are assessed according to these KPIs.

4.1 Specification of the use cases to be completed within TSOs’ environments used for pilot tests

4.2 Key performance indicators for the assessment of pilot tests

4.3 Assessment of pilot tests

Pilot tests

The use cases defined in workpackage four are implemented in pilot tests in order to test the prototype demand response and distributed generation flexibility aggregation platforms in different countries, and the regional balancing and redispatching platform with the support of real life prosumers and distributed generation owners.

5.1 Report on the recruitment of C&I consumers, prosumers and distributed generators

5.2 Report on the pilot tests carried out within each participating control zone

5.3 Report on the cross-border pilot tests

Impact analysis of the performed field tests and exploitation of the project results

The final workpackage quantifies the technologic and economic impacts of the pilot tests performed by the consortium. It therefore details the technical, economic and regulatory barriers to be overcome before proper scaling and replication of the project results occurs. A deployment roadmap for the most promising use cases is recommended based on the field tests involving transmission system operator cooperation, and exploitation plans of the project results are proposed for the participating non-regulated players.

6.1 Impact analysis of the performed pilot tests

6.2 Barriers to scaling up and replication of the most promising field tests results

6.3 Analysis of results from dissemination activities during the first three years

6.4 Recommendations for a deployment roadmap of the most promising use cases studied in the pilot tests

6.5 Intermediate and final versions of the exploitation plan of results supported by non-regulated market players

Communication and dissemination

The project also contain a communication and dissemination work package in order to promote the project actions and its results, by providing targeted information to multiple audiences.
