Evaluation and validation of a hybrid virtual power plant concept including electricity generation from renewable resources
The aim of the project hybrid-VPP4DSO was the design, evaluation and validation of a hybrid virtual power plant concept including electricity generation from renewable resources as well as consumer-related measures (provision of negawatts) to optimize the power system. Network and market driven approaches were combined, especially to provide services for the requirements of distribution grid operators. The simulation-based development of the hybrid-VPP-concept was performed with real company data. After successful validation, a proof of concept in two specific network areas in Slovenia and in Austria was put in place. Furthermore, the possibilities for business models, technical and not-technical barriers of the VPP market were evaluated.
