Modelling TSO-DSO coordination: The value of distributed flexible resources to the power system
Challenge and objective
- TSO-DSO interaction is mainly based on a uni-directional flow of information (from TSO to DSO).
- The resources in the distribution systems are not utilized fully in overall power system operations.
- Limited information in existing literature how the coordination of the TSO-DSO can and should be optimized.
- Limited insights to the potential value coordination may bring to the overall power system operations.
- Optimization of the power system operation through modelling TSO-DSO coordination, where flexibility is provided by distributed energy resources located in the distribution systems.
- The optimization problem is modelled as deterministic mixed integer linear programs with unit commitment and economic dispatch.
- Case studies: 1) Top-down, 2) Coordinated TSO-DSO problem.
- The total costs of power system operations are reduced when distributed flexible resources are incorporated under a joint coordination framework
Impact for distribution system innovation
- Reduced costs when including flexible resources in the operation of the power system (case result).
