Contributions are welcome concerning these 3 topics :
1. Business models, roles, responsibilities and regulatory aspects
Theme 1 addresses topics related to the overall regulatory, business and organisational frameworks for microgrid implementation and operation, focusing mainly on the roles of the microgrid operators and DSOs in making microgrids an integrated part of the electricity distribution system of the future.
- Regulatory aspects
- The roles and responsibilities of the different actors
- Handling of actor interfaces
- Business models for stimulating cost efficient implementation and utilization
- Business cases for microgrids and local energy communities (from system operators’, aggregators’and customers’ points of view)
2. Architecture and system development
In the domain of microgrids and local energy communities, robust architectures are necessary in order to foster system development, as well as suitable models to compare development options. These are issues addressed in Theme 2.
- Impact on network architecture and system development of services offered by microgrids and local energy communities (e.g., increasing of hosting capacity, resiliency, flexibility, investment deferment)
- Models and tools for including microgrids and local energy communities in development studies, including multi-energy hubs
- Microgrids and local energy communities to provide security of supply beyond the parameters associated
with the DSO
3. Network integration, control concepts and operations
Theme 3 invites authors to present their contributions related to technical microgrid integration methods and solutions, as well as field trial results, tests and standards.
- The coordinated control of a large number of distributed sources with different technical characteristics and possible conflicting requirements
- Ride-through capabilities, essential for the stable operation of microgrids, especially when in islanded mode of operation
- Efficient load-sharing capabilities among power electronics interfaced distributed generators
- Protection and safety issues
- The design and dimensioning of storage and controllers able to face the requirements posed by the islanded operation and during transitions from interconnected to islanded mode.
- Assessment of services offered by microgrids and local energy communities. (e.g., post fault services, resiliency increase, flexibility)
