Periodic Reporting for period 1 - PlatOne (PLATform for Operation of distribution NEtworks)
Reporting period: 2019-09-01 to 2021-02-28
The relevant legislative and regulatory framework and the standardisation ecosystem have been analysed. Suitable solutions, gaps and recommendations have been produced. Standardised grid models have been constructed. The Scalability and Replicability Analysis methodology has been defined and suitable use cases identified. For the Cost-Benefit Analysis, the list of relevant assets has been identified:
Initial stakeholder workshops were held in Italy and Greece. The 1st, resp. 2nd workshops have taken place virtually in Germany, resp. Greece in February 2021 and Italy in March 2021.
The Platone Open Framework expands the SOGNO architecture to integrate market and customer aspects based on blockchain technology. The SOGNO architecture has been accepted as a project in the Linux Foundation Energy (LFE). Platone will further exploit the possible growth of SOGNO in LFE and the corresponding new services.
Platone has been extremely active in the BRIDGE working groups. The Platone open-source Use Case Repository has been developed and adopted by the Data Management Working group as the way to store Use Cases for all H2020 projects. Platone has also been leading the work in the Regulation working group by providing an updated version of the HEMRM (Harmonized Electricity Market Role Models) document.
The cooperation with Canada has been also kicked off. Apart from the direct involvement in the Advisory Board, the group in Canada has been fully following the Platone approach in platform development. The University of Alberta joined the same working group in the Linux Foundation Energy and is spreading the concept beyond the plans envisioned at the time of the proposal.
• an almost real time observability of the grid for the DSO;
• customers to have access to their consumption data and increased levels of participation in a local flexibility market, as well as day-ahead and balancing markets through the DSO,
• aggregation of medium and low voltage customers to provide flexibility services to TSO/DSO, without any investment in ad hoc measurement systems;
• the creation of a local flexibility market for flexibility services supply at the distribution level, led by the DSOs and validated by the blockchain technology.
• transparent and tamper-proof data collection and data sharing.
All these characteristics, together with the usage of standards data models (e.g. CIM) and standard interfaces and communication protocols, make the Platone Open Framework highly integrable and reusable. The integration and deployment in three different trials, each based on different use cases and scenarios, will allow us to validate and improve the framework and the different platforms in the next stages.
The future development of the DSO Technical Platform outside Platone has been secured by its acceptance into the Linux Foundation Energy in December 2020, supporting synthesis with similar activities around the world and use of a service-oriented, API-driven architecture.
Data Driven State Estimation extracts extra knowledge from the available measurements, using past measurements to deduce pseudo-measurements and identify corrupted data, enhancing its usefulness and reliability.
Dynamic distribution’s use-of-system tariffs drives network costs down by utilizing available flexibility. Data analytics and machine learning assist in the enhancement of the efficacy of such tariffs.
Phasor Measurement Units will be improved and deployed for real time grid monitoring of the network and will be ready for large-scale deployment at the end of the project.
