On this page you will find all deliverables of the FutureFlow project, sorted per workpackage one to six. If the hyperlink to one of the deliverables is not yet set public, it means that the document has not yet been delivered and/or approved for publication.
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.
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
2.4 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
3.4 Common real-time processing function, integrated into the TSO Environment and Prototype Regional Balancing and Redispatching Platform
3.6 Report on trustful ICT connections between at the Regional Balancing and Redispatching Platform level
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.
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
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.
6.5 Intermediate and final versions of the exploitation plan of results supported by non-regulated market players
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.
