Distributed energy resourcesProject Advanced VPP Grid Integration
Report: Technical Description of API Implementation (PDF 829KB)
This preliminary report contains a detailed technical description of API implementation for SA Power Networks’ Advanced VPP Grid Integration project.
The Advanced VPP grid integration project has introduced an interface (API) to exchange real-time and locational data on distribution network constraints between SA Power Networks and the Tesla South Australian VPP, enabling the VPP to optimise its output to make use of available network capacity. This concept is being tested in a field trial over 12-months. Refer to the ARENA web site for more about distributed energy resources and related ARENA trials.
