Evaluation and validation of a hybrid virtual power plant concept including electricity generation from renewables
Design, evaluation, and validation of a hybrid virtual power plant
Integration of renewables
Implemented in Slovenia and Austria
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.
A hybrid virtual power plant
The simulation-based development of the hybrid-VPP-conceptwas performed with real company data. After successful validation, a proof of concept in two specific network areas in Slovenia and Austria was put in place. Furthermore, the possibilities for business models, technical and not-technical barriers of the VPP market were evaluated.
