Challenge and objective

  • Increased need for utilization of flexibility due to digitalization, automation and more distributed generation from RES.
  • Flexible resources can contribute in ancillary services on different grid levels.
  • Need for coordination when several stakeholders (TSO and DSO) request flexibility services from the same resource, also to avoid new imbalances.

Work performed

  • Developed use cases describing how flexible resources can be utilized in ancillary services, such as voltage control, congestion management and balancing.

Significant results

  • A holistic approach considering technical, market and environmental aspects to evaluate utilization of flexibility resources in different ancillary services.
  • Geographic location of flexible resources is important in some services (voltage control), and not services related to frequency regulation.

Impact for distribution system innovation

  • Increased utilization of flexible resources in ancillary services.
