Architecture for a massive
penetration of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) is an outcome of the project. It includes the figure of a new
actor called “Aggregator“, who establishes commercial relationship with DERs and helps them to maximize their
contributions to the network. Competition is granted as many Aggregators can provide services in one zone.
This FENIX architecture has been adapted and deployed in Spain, including different developments and hardware pieces:
The architecture requires a web connection with the DER to exchange bids and schedules, but also a real time connection to visualize their output and send setpoints.
For the Southern Demonstration GPRS has been selected for this real time link as it can provide very simple massive access to DER. Locally a device call FENIX-box provides the real time link between DER and aggregator.
What will be demonstrated?
To prove FENIX concepts, different use cases where defined, and some of them will be demonstrated in a real world region of Spain:
1) Participation of DER in the Day Ahead Energy Market
2) Providing Tertiary Reserve
3) Voltage Control
4) Network Contingencies
