Distributed energy resourcesProject DER Integration and Automation Project
This is the final Knowledge Sharing Report for Evoenergy’s DER Integration and Automation Project. This report describes the project, the activities undertaken, outcomes achieved and key lessons learnt.
The DER Integration and Automation project is to utilise control of DER to ensure that the network is maintained within technical limits. This allows for deferral of the need for grid augmentation investment and at the same time increase network capacity to host more DERs. To achieve this Evoenergy is using the existing Schneider Electric EcoStruxture Advanced Distribution Management System (ADMS), a new instance of the Schneider Electric Distributed Energy Resource Management System (DERMS), the Evoenergy IOT Hub and the Greensync deX system.
The platform defines what DER groups are to be despatched subject to constraints and sequencing, it then communicates with these DER groups through integration to the IoT Hub that communicates to the deX platform.
