As known, CIRED is the most important discussion forum on R&D activities concerning distribution networks.
The 2021 edition (https://www.cired2021.org/) will be held in virtual form on 20-23 September 2021.
FlexPlan will provide two important contributions:
- Presentation of the paper “Planning of distribution networks considering flexibility of local resources: how to deal with transmission system services”. This paper outlines a new methodology, set up by FlexPlan, to perform an integrated grid planning between transmission and distribution grid by means of a TSO-DSO cooperative approach which allows to maintain a separation between the two processes and limit the amount of data to be exchanged. At the same time, this approach makes it possible to considerably reduce the computational complexity that an integrated TSO-DSO grid planning approach would entail. The FlexPlan paper will be presented by its main author, Marco Rossi (RSE), in Session MS5.3 (22nd September – h14.30).
- Participation in Round Table 20 “The worth of flexibility in distribution planning and operation” (22nd September – h16.30) by Gianluigi Migliavacca (RSE), FlexPlan project coordinating person. He will carry out a presentation (“What about the competition for flexibility between TSO and DSO? Is it possible to perform integrated planning?”) and participate in the subsequent debate.
