Demonstration of

coordinated ancillary services covering different voltage levels and the integration in future markets

About DeCAS Project

DeCAS is an ERA-Net SmartGrid+ funded project (launched in February 2016). With partners of four European countries, the project builds on three existing demonstration projects (so called DeCAS Innovation Cells) whose current state will be advanced and where the developed solutions will be transferred and validated.


The project aims to research and analyse system services such as demand response and coordination of individual Volt/Var control concepts crossing traditional boundaries from high voltage, medium voltage to low voltage, also with regard to their respective market integration concepts. It will further include the integration of related monitoring and controls in process-control systems.



The result will be an approach for the orchestration of the power system via hierarchical and integrated network control, taking into consideration the market integration of flexibility and stakeholder involvement focusing on consumers and networks operators. Three individual innovation cells in three different countries will develop and validate this approach during the 3-year period of this project.
