Demonstration of

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


The consortium partners (led by AIT), including partners from research organisations (AIT, University Ljubljana, TU Vienna, RWTH Achen, Hochschule Kempten), Industry (Siemens AG Österreich, ABB (Finland) and distribution system operators (Salzburg Netz and AllgäuNetz GmbH & Co. KG) contribute with their respective key competences for the purpose of realizing a successful project. The research organisations focus on the competences in project lead as well as in development, evaluation and validation of smart grid solutions for distribution networks with enhanced simulations in parallel to field tests. Additionally, the RTOs bring in specific competences in market modelling and analysis as well as socio economic investigations. The industrial partners contribute with their competence in the design and development of smart grid technologies and system solutions as well as the experience in practical implementation and system integration. The involved network operators bring in their practical experiences in system operation and planning with a high share of distributed energy resources and the competence and experience in running field tests in the contect of research projects as well as implementing smart grid related technologies in distribution grids.
