D4.1 is a document that identifies the functionalities, data requirements and interfaces of the distribution observability and Management system (DOMS). The supported aggregation levels, grid assets and system variables of the distribution network are specified, based on requirements from other system components(WP2,WP3,WP5) and from the selected use cases. The data required to support the identified functionalities are also detailed, going from GIS and grid connectivity data to SCADA or smart meter readings and flexibility, demand response data. The necessary interfaces for ingesting data from the cloud service platform (WP5) and for exposing DOMS functionalities to the demand response requesting party (WP2,WP3) are specified. Initial performance analysis agaist specified metrics and KPIS are also reported. Associated Task: T4.1 Interaction: T2.1,T3.1,T5.1

Report on Demonstration Results Evaluation - Use Case 3

Document D9.4 provides a summary of the overall experience SWW as a DSO has collected throughout the whole project. SWW will interview customers and their experience, will evaluate the financial impact by comparing KPIs (see D9.2) with necessary capital expenditure (CAPEX) and operational expenditure OPEX for any future roll-out of GOFLEX results, and by evaluation of technical problems from SWW’s service center. Finally, this deliverable reports on the CBA analysis with concrete evidence on the results achieved.
