CIGRE 2011 Bologna Symposium - The Electric Power System of the Future: Integrating Supergrids and Microgrids | Year: 2011

The rapid deployment of distributed generation (DG) in recent years coupled with the present uncertainties concerning adequate grid integration methodologies is closely linked to technical feasibility and new information and communication solutions. The final results of the Slovenian project "Intelligent power system platform for supervision and control of distributed generation and customer demands - SUPERMEN" are presented in the paper. The project deals with the strategy of converting the currently passive distribution networks to active networks. This conversion introduces many challenges such as DG network integration, power quality, concepts and strategies for network planning, control and supervision as well as information and communication technologies (ICT). The main goal of the SUPERMEN project was to implement a demonstration network based on a virtual power plant where distributed resources are controlled and supervised by ICTs. Within the project, a modular point-of-common-coupling interface (PCCI) and virtual power plant control centre (VPP CC) middleware were developed. Source
