The distribution of electricity is undergoing a fundamental transformation, driven by changes in the customers connected to the grid.
Renewable distributed generation and storage technologies are providing end-customers with tools to improve their energy efficiency becoming more autonomous. Simultaneously these energy capabilities distributed across the grid, if not coordinated, have the potential to completely disrupt the operation of the grid and the electricity markets impacting grid quality of service and robustness as well as grid services.
All these transformations are driving us towards distribution grids increasingly more complex and dynamic with many more actors impacting its design and operation.
Indra introduces in this talk, InGRID Active Grid Management (InGRID AGM), a novel grid monitoring and control platform based in distributed control principles, enabling the real time coordination of distribution grid assets at all voltage levels with connected customers.
This RT coordination capability enables new possibilities and markets to improve the quality, reliability and the efficiency of current distribution grids.
These new opportunities and actual implementation references will be discussed to illustrate the whole range of business models enabled.
