Control System Logics: Cluster and Interface Controllers

In deliverable D5.4, the presentation, discussion and comparison of the five different showcase (SC) results against the base showcase (BSC) results given by the calculated key performance indicators (KPIs) as well as a proof-of-concept of the INTERPLAN tool for one specific showcase (SC3) are provided.

The deliverable includes the application of the control system logics through cluster and interface controllers (described in deliverable D5.3) to the five INTERPLAN SCs (documented in deliverable D5.1) including:

  1. SC1: Low inertia systems
  2. SC2: Effective distributed energy resources (DER) operation planning through active and
    reactive power control
  3. SC3: TSO-DSO power flow optimization
  4. SC4: TSO-DSO coordinated active and reactive power optimization for provision of tertiary
    reserve and improvement of voltage profiles
  5. SC5: Optimal energy interruption management

The proof of concept for the INTERPLAN tool is also presented, exemplary for SC3. Here, all the different steps of the INTERPLAN tool are described regarding the three main stages explained before from a perspective of an identified user.

The Integrated Network Operation Planning tool developed in INTERPLAN is defined as a methodology consisting of a set of tools (grid equivalents, control functions) for the operation planning of the Pan-European network by addressing a significant number of system operation planning challenges of the current and the future 2030+ EU power grid, from the perspective of the transmission system, the distribution system, and with a particular focus on the transmission-distribution interface.

In this sense, the main goal of the tool is to achieve the operation planning of an integrated grid from the perspective of a Transmission System Operator (TSO) or a Distribution System Operator (DSO) through handling efficiently and effectively intermittent Renewable Energy Sources (RES) as well as the emerging technologies such as storage, demand response and electric vehicles. In fact, the tool supports utilizing flexibility potential coming from RES, demand side management (DSM), storage and electric mobility for system services in all network control levels.
