A distributed control architecture for a loosely coupled virtual power plant

  • The increasing share of renewable energy with volatile production results in higher variability of prices for electrical energy. Optimized operating schedules, e.g., for industrial units, can yield a considerable reduction of energy costs by shifting processes with high power consumption to times with low energy prices. We present a distributed control architecture for virtual power plants (VPPs) where VPP participants benefit from flexible adaptation of schedules to price forecasts while maintaining control of their operating schedule. An aggregator trades at the energy market on behalf of the participants and benefits from more detailed and reliable load profiles within the VPP.
