The deployment of renewable energy sources (RES), in particular wind and solar with intermittent features, is dramatically increased to reduce the dependency of fossil fuels. Meanwhile, with the replacement of other type of energy resources into electricity, some new actors, such as electric vehicles and heat pumps, some new load patterns are introduced into current electricity grid. Energy storage and other initiate distributed energy resources (DER) can be managed in some way, to mitigate the impacts of the intermittent feature of RES, to avoid the congestion in the distribution grid caused by the increasing loads, and in the end to coordinate more DERs in the grid. So it is essential to study different types of DERs and the strategy to make the optimal use of energy storage either to reduce the critical loads or to increase the availability of RES.

This project is focused on the behavior of different kinds of DER facilities from the grid side, and moreover on proposing control strategies and methods to accommodate DERs by utilizing the flexibility of DER themselves and energy storage to a maximal extent. The project is part of iPower Project Work Package 3, on distribution grid operation to identify the network constrains when facing a large amount of DERs in the system. The main expected results with the projects are summarized as:
- A series of models of embedded generations and identical distribution grid models for both LV and MV levels, together with load and battery models.
- Some Case studies with different penetration level of DER units, network configurations, and other considerations.
- Control strategies to allocate active facilities and energy storage with the maximal utilization of DER facilities.
- Proof-of-concept implementations in SYSLAB.
