The SmartNet Project
The legislative package proposed by the European Commission in November 2016, nicknamed the Clean Energy Package, assigns a role to distribution system operators (DSOs) for local congestion management but not for balancing. Balancing management remains in the hands of the transmission system operators (TSOs)1. However, such sharp decoupling risks inefficient system operation.
All these issues are addressed by the SmartNet European research project, under technical and administrative management by RSE2, which aims to compare different TSO-DSO interaction schemes and different real-time market architectures. The goal is to find out which would deliver the best compromise between costs and benefits for the system. The objective is to develop an ad hoc simulation platform which models all three layers (physical network, market and ICT), analysing three national cases (Italy, Denmark and Spain). This simulation platform is then scaled to a full replica lab, where the performance of real controller devices will be tested.
