    Abstract

    The emergence of Virtual Power Plant (VPP) can be attributed to the major boost of distributed energy resources (DER), which satisfies the changing needs of modern society on energy industry. Based on this concept, DER units disregarding the differences in each individualtechnology are loosely aggregated with a unique interface to the external grid and energy market. This paper gives a broad overview of state-of-the-art VPP concepts and proposes a detailed generic VPP (GVPP) model running in liberalized electricity market environment. An attempt is made to provide an outline of the main functions that are necessary for the efficient operation of GVPP. By applying with the function-based design (FBD) method, GVPP developers with different system requirements are able to get the most flexibility out of the GVPP model. This is demonstrated in a case study wherein different GVPP scenarios are employed. Tools and methods associated with the functions are also briefly presented to further facilitate the development of GVPP.
