Project: From micro to Mega-GRID: Interaction of micro-grids in active distribution networks

Acronym m2M-GRID (Reference Number: 82136)
Duration 01/02/2017 - 31/03/2020
Project Topic Adoption of bottom-up technologies such as micro-grids in a mega scale in distribution grids is facing challenges from coexistence of top-down grid control systems and market models. This project aims to accelerate deployment of micro-grids by: (i) enhancing the distribution grid planning process to take into account technical and market impacts of micro-grid integration; (ii) developing control functions for effective coordination with distribution grids; (iii) developing a tool-box to exploit potential flexibility of micro-grids. The developed solutions will be validated in a range of test environments, e.g. cross-platform software and power hardware-in-the-loop experiments. Especially, three dedicated demonstrations in Sweden and France will be used to facilitate validation and replicability analyses based on real environments. This project demonstrates market opportunities for involved stakeholders, thus helps accelerate the adoption process of developed micro-grid technologies.
