Short description of the project contribution
Market integration of industrial flexibility per interface between energy controlling and marketing platforms
Because of their operational requirements, industrial companies have a proven energy controlling system and an existing data collection infrastructure. The objective is to enhance the existing management and controlling system at a low cost in such a way that a systemic interface is created. This interface should function both at the measuring and control level of the industrial site and also incorporate the necessary algorithms and processes to assess flexibility for market use and integrate them on the relevant energy markets through marketing platforms.
ÖKOTEC develops the concept of a technical interface for automated flexibility assessment and control and demonstrates the procedure at industrial sites as a test. Innovative methods were developed for the forecasting and dynamic analysis of the availability of flexible installations. These serve as the basis for dynamic optimal market, grid and system operating modes for the purposes of an efficient energy supply.
Industrial sites are enabled to automatically calculate the availability for flexibility with all relevant data on site as well as provide marketing information to market partners or system operators. In addition, efficient and optimised schedules are transformed back into individual system control signals and transmitted to the control systems of the respective flexible systems in case of market use.
