C6 – Active distribution systems and distributed energy resources

Mission

To facilitate and promote the progress of engineering and the international exchange of information and knowledge in the field of distribution systems and distributed energy resources (DER). To add value to this information and knowledge by means of synthesizing state-of- the-art practices and developing recommendations.

 

Scope

Technology, integration and operation of dispersed energy resources and the associated active distribution systems. To analyse the different approaches and solutions and to assist various players in distribution systems make DER more controllable and responsive (active distribution systems with enabled customer involvement) and enhance the role of the Distribution System Operator (DSO) and its Distribution Management system (DMS). Technological field of activity: innovative equipment and systems for DER and distribution technology deployment; customer integration and empowerment; enabling technologies for DER integration and application; storage technologies and multienergy technologies, rural electrification and off-grid systems. Distribution generation, from conventional (diesel, gas turbines, CHP) to renewable resources (wind and solar) based generation, energy storage systems (battery energy storage, thermal and inertial storage), and demand response (controllable and curtailable loads).

Areas of attention include:
• Enabling technologies for renewable and distributed energy resource integration
and application: active network management, micro-grids, virtual power plants,
distribution management systems (ADMS, DERMS), DER monitoring and control,
aggregation systems, platforms, block-chain applications.
• Innovative solutions for DER and distribution technology deployment: smart inverters
and power electronic interfaces and interconnection device applications, MV/LV DC
supply systems, distribution system modernization.
• Storage technologies: deployment of various storage technologies such as
electrochemical electric battery energy storage systems, flywheels, flow batteries,
and new storage technologies, hydropower, hydrogen, multi-energy solutions
(with thermal storage), power2X applications (power to heat, power to gas …),
electric vehicles.
• New approaches to configure new distribution systems for enhanced reliability
and resilience: islandable grid connected micro-grids, power exchange between
microgrids.
• Consumer integration and empowerment: Demand side integration and
participation, demand response, load management, smart load, new customer
sectors such as electric vehicles, smart home and smart meter applications
with impact on distribution systems.
• Smart cities: integrated distribution system technologies, power, control and
information and communication technology deployment for flexibility, integration
of multi-energy systems.  • Rural Electrification, islanded power systems and
individual customer off-grid systems and solutions.
