Project Details


The main objectives of the project are to:
1. Specify the architecture and integration mechanisms for scalable IIoT solutions for the next generation electricity system
management based on distributed and hierarchical ICT and automation systems, and an energy and flexibility service market.
2. Develop methods for creating smart, flexible and robust control solutions for predictive balancing and congestion management based.
on flexibility services of DERs and considering the uncertainty related to them.
3. Demonstrate the combined performance of architecture and functionalities utilizing it, and analyse interactions and conflicts between subsystems.
