OVIRED

Virtual operator of storage microgrids, OVI-RED

Description:

The project OVI-RED aims at designing, developing and implementing a system for the management of a group of microgrids. The proposed system is composed of different control and management layers organized in a hierarchy that permit to use distributed energy resources of the microgrid on the basis of criteria of grid stability and reliability, optimization of the energy dispatch and maximization of the economic benefit provided by the energy exchange with the main grid. The project has addressed the development of control systems at various levels to properly meet the requirements related to the management of technical aspects and to the economic aspects regarding the optimization of the energy exchange with the main distribution grid.

Aims:

The aim of the project is to design, develop and implement a system for the management of a group of microgrids, which in turn individually manage resources contained in their local microgrid including distributed energy storage of different technologies, energy capacity and manageability, using as a main basis the concept of VPP (Virtual Power Plant).

Results:

The project has developed a system composed of different control and management layers organized in a hierarchy that permit to use distributed energy resources of the microgrid on the basis of the following criteria:

  • Grid stability and reliability.
  • Optimization of the energy dispatch and maximization of the economic benefit provided by the energy exchange with the main grid.
  • Development of control systems at various levels to properly meet the requirements related to the management of technical aspects and to economic aspects.
