Sharma, S. Kok, K. Publication year 2022 Abstract Due to the increasing penetration of renewablebased distributed energy resources (DERs), the risks of congestion problems have been increasing in the Dutch distribution system. Traditionally, grid reinforcements were applied to prevent congestion, but due to shortages of technicians and due to long procedures, the use of flexibility from household DERs could be a more suitable solution in certain cases in the future. However, due to duality between markets, the activation of the available flexibility by a Distribution System Operator (DSO) to mitigate congestion problems is expected to be lower than the amount which is technically available. This paper presents a high-level co-simulation framework design for analyzing the effectiveness of different (combinations of) flexibility activation mechanisms invoked by DSOs on congestion in their distribution grids. The proposed framework will be worked out in more detail in future work to give insight in which combinations of flexibility activation mechanisms are most effective in mitigating congestion in various typical Dutch neighborhoods Subject ClusteringCo-simulationcongestion managementDERsvalue stackingChemical activationTraffic congestionActivation mechanismsClusteringsCongestions managementsCosimulationDistributed Energy ResourcesFlexibility activationFramework designsSimulation frameworkStackingsValue stackingEnergy resources To reference this document use: http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:e58b1246-f0ff-44cf-ad28-9d0707a544ff TNO identifier 970811 Publisher Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc.
