The DER-GRID Facility further functions as a “Living Lab” and exposes students to reallife scenarios and use cases regarding the operation of future smart grids and devices.
• Nanogrid operational funcitonality.
• Interoperability communicative flows (Sunspec, Modbus TCP, etc.)
• Smart Home automated management
• Photovoltaic (PV) power production forecasting platform
• Smart inverter ancillary services
• Demand response from smart appliances (OpenADR)
• Integration of distributed energy resources (DER), standards and grid codes
• Interoperability and communication testing
• Grid assets monitoring based on IIoT devices
• Solar PV production forecasting (day- and hour-ahead) and load forecasting
• Forecast-based grid condition simulation
• Assessment of demand response in future smart grids
