    Vertical Load Uncertainty at the T/D Boundary under different spatial der allocation techniques
    ( 2019) João Vieira Silva ; Miranda,V ; Melo,J ; Duenas,P ; Filipe Joel Soares ; Heymann,F ; Vilaca,P ; 6299 ; 4999
    Vertical load is the power flow between electrical transmission and distribution networks. In the past, large-scale generators connected to transmission systems supplied consumers connected to lower voltage levels across distribution grids. Thus, vertical loads tended to be downward-oriented. This paper presents a spatiotemporal distributed energy resources (DER) diffusion model to analyze vertical load uncertainty resulting from different DER diffusion process representations currently used in the industry and academia. Network planners and operators can use such model to understand the long-term evolution of load at the T/D boundary. The proposal is applied to the Portuguese power system, combining, as first of its kind, highly granulated population census with georeferenced transmission and distribution network datasets. This application analyzes the 20-year evolution of such vertical load flows at the transmission-distribution boundary under a strong uptake of DER embodied in lower voltage levels in Portugal. © 2019 IEEE.

    TDX-Assist: Beyond state of art in TSO-DSO interoperability – The Portuguese demonstrator
    ( 2019) Gama,P ; Carvalho,L ; Louro,M ; Simão,T ; João Vieira Silva ; Reis,F ; Pestana,R ; Glória,G ; 6299
    The continuous shift from TSO connected generation to DSO connection generation is presenting new challenges to DSOs and TSOs. Keeping the system up and running in the future requires a more collaborative approach to the issue of DSO/TSO cooperation that has existed so far in the vertically integrated network paradigm. It is possible to use IT tools to make sure both system operators have the relevant information they require to fulfil their mission.TDX-Assist’s Portuguese demo helps addressing these issues by:focusing on the provision of reactive power services by the DSO to the TSO. A new version of the Interval Constrained Power Flow (ICPF) tool, which takes into account disjoint flexibility areas as a result of the combination of discrete control variables, will be used to evaluate the range of operation points at the primary substations (Figure 1). With this information, the TSO can then select an operation point that will cause minimum impact on the transmission network.designing and implementing the information exchange needed to support other dimensions such as operational planning through nodal forecast at nodal level and exchange of maintenance plans in a defined observability area of both system operators

    Management of Inverter-based Distributed Energy Resources for Providing Voltage Regulation Support in Islanded Operation of Low Voltage Networks
    ( 2018) Verga,M ; Bargiyanik,M ; Ozdemir,A ; Barbosa,A ; Filipe Joel Soares ; Sandroni,C ; Pellegrino,L ; Lazzari,R ; Kucuk,U ; Zehir,MA ; 4999
    Growing number of inverter-based distributed energy resources (DERs) and sensitive loads increase the need for coordinated power management activities in islanded operation of microgrids. Especially low voltage networks have low inertia and high R/X ratio, causing instability due to fluctuations in distributed generation (DG) and local voltage problems in islanded operation. This study investigates management of DERs that operate in current mode for providing voltage regulation support to master unit(s) in islanded operation of microgrids. A special focus was set on local voltage issues in low voltage (LV) network feeders. Field experiments in a large test facility highlighted management accuracy and corrective impact potential of DERs connected to different parts of a feeder. © 2018 IEEE.
