The FutureFlow (Designing eTrading Solutions for Electricity Balancing and Redispatching in Europe) project is expanding its scope of operation of so-called secondary frequency control from generation to consumption. Within the project, the three level IT architecture has been developed connecting the Flexibility aggregation platform with the Regional cross-border balancing platform and TSOs environment. The complete IT architecture enables real-time field pilot tests with DR&DGs in Austria, Slovenia, Hungary and Romania. Over 100 DR&DG units with overall reserve power exceeding 50 MW were tested their capability of providing the most complex balancing services, first within the local TSO environment and afterwards in the cross-border real-time tests. As a development project, FutureFlow did not remain on the level of scientific contributions, because industry offers their services in the real economy and will be able to apply developed prototype platforms after the project’s conclusion.
In accordance with European Commission (EC) and its document “Guidelines to the Rules on Open Access to Scientific Publications and Open Access to Research Data in Horizon 2020″ we would like to inform you that interested audience can attend this session free of charge!
