The ACTIVATE Project
ACTIVATE contributes to the increase of supply reliability and DRES penetration to meet EU targets to improve sustainability, flexibility, and efficiency in electricity sector. We develop novel and ready-to-apply ancillary service solutions for TSOs and DSOs. The solutions aim at addressing the emerging grid operation challenges caused by the increased DRES penetration and especially their intermittent nature.
novel ancillary services
ACTIVATE solutions aim to address the emerging grid operation challenges caused by the increased DG penetration and especially by the intermittent nature of DRESs. The ancillary services to be developed will be based on exploiting the functionalities the network assets offer including: Energy Storage Systems (ESSs), new operational features of grid-interfaced converters of ESSs and DRES units, and a new monitoring system architecture for active distribution networks (ADNs) based on measurements.
