Demand Response in Active Distribution Networks using integration of Network Manager and Aristo
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 10 HE creditsStudent thesis
As distribution and transmission grids have to become more and more ’active’, in order to increase performance and economic profitability, control is getting more complicated. Therefore an integration of a network control system and a power system simulator would be useful for analysis and training of operators having to adapt to a new way of controlling the grid.
This thesis describes the technical implementation work performed to successfully create such an application: an integration of Network Manager and Aristo. Network Manager, created by ABB Ventix, is a network control center package, including SCADA. Aristo, created by Svenka Kraftnät, is a power system simulator for training purposes. Both systems are integrated using two modern standards: OPC UA and CIM. CIM is used to import the Svedala model from Aristo to Network Manager. OPC UA is used to integrate both programs in real time and provides communication of measurements, statuses and commands between both systems. CIM is used to export the Svedala power system model from Aristo to the databases of Network Manager. A local controller, optimizing the control of parallel transformers in substations, has been programmed in JACK. This local controller was also integrated in the system as a proof of concept.
Our integrated Network Manager-Aristo platform can in the future be used in the ongoing research for better control strategies of grids by adding different local controllers and running different simulation scenarios.
