8 3. Future Trends a) Large-scale renewable generation b) Distributed Generation (DG) c) Energy storage systems (ESS) d) E-mobility Electric vehicles Interaction with the grid Possible challenges for the grid Approaches to handle EV charging load Future Trends Large-scale renewable generation Source: Source: Source: Off-shore wind farm On-shore wind farm Solar power plant Good news: increasing penetration of large-scale renewable with significant installed capacity Bad news: intermittent generation with a considerable forecast uncertainty 16

9 3. Future Trends Distributed Generation (DG) Source: Roof-mounted solar panels Source: Combine heat and power (CHP) unit Increasing penetration of roof-mounted solar panels and micro combined heat and power (CHP) units in low voltage (LV) distribution network Future Trends Energy Storage Systems (ESS) Source: Source: Source: Battery storage system Compressed air storage system Pumped-storage system Energy storage systems used to compensate intermittency of renewable generation 18

10 3. Future Trends E-mobility: Definition and realization form Definition: Using electricity as the energy vector for the road electric vehicles Realization form: Large-scale market introduction of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) and battery electric vehicles (BEV) Future Trends E-mobility: Electric vehicles Battery electric vehicles (BEVs): The propulsion system consists of an electric motor The electric motor uses the electric energy stored in vehicle battery packs Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs): The propulsion system consists of an electric motor and an internal combustion engine (ICE) The electric motor and the ICE use the energy stored in vehicle battery packs and fuel tank, respectively 20

11 3. Future Trends E-mobility: Interaction with the grid Massive integration of EVs introduces new challenges and opportunities to the grid From the power system side, EVs can be regarded as: Simple loads: when the EV owner wants to charge the batteries at a certain rate in a specified time (dumb charging) Responsive loads: when the EV owner defines a time interval for the charging process, allowing some management structure to control the charging rate (smart charging) Storage devices: when the EV owner allows batteries to inject power to the grid upon request (vehicle-to-grid operation) Future Trends E-mobility: Possible challenges for the grid Significant grid operational problems are expected in case of considering EVs as simple loads, particularly if grid peak time coincides with EV charging periods: Increase in grid overall peak demand Congestion problems in areas of the grid already heavily loaded Voltage profile problems mainly in radial networks 22

12 3. Future Trends E-mobility: Possible challenges for the grid Effect of dumb charging of EV batteries on Germany s electricity demand assuming a 10% share for electric vehicles: Future Trends E-mobility: Approaches to handle EV charging load In the case of congestion due to EV charging, two possible solutions can be suggested: Plan for grid expansion so that the reinforced network is able to handle the new EV battery charging loads Develop a smart management system for charging EV batteries to optimize charging times and fully benefit from EV battery storage potential The first way requires high grid investments The second approach tries to benefit from the already existing infrastructure to minimize new possible investment costs, and is thus preferred where possible 24

13 4. Introduction to Smart Grid a) Motivation Need for effective integration of new trends Need for changing the role of demand side from passive to active b) Power system structural change under smart grid paradigm c) Key benefits of smart grid Introduction to Smart Grid Motivation: Need for effective integration of new trends The new trends in power system offer many challenges and opportunities Current power system paradigm cannot accommodate the new trends in power systems in an effective way For example: Intermittency of large-scale renewable resources makes the traditional dispatching as known from thermal power plants impossible Distributed energy resources close to the consumer alter the power flows on distribution networks Electric vehicles are new resources that are new loads but can also provide support to network operation The smart grid is to support the integration of such new trends 26

14 4. Introduction to Smart Grid Motivation: Need for changing the role of demand side from passive to active Presently, demand side is a passive part in the power system Changing demand side role from passive to active may offer the following benefits: Decrease in peak demand Delay in grid expansion Better utilization of assets in generation, transmission and distribution sectors Higher energy efficiency of power system More economic operation of the power system To actively involve the consumers in power system operation, they need to be incentivized Introduction to Smart Grid Motivation: Need for changing the role of demand side from passive to active Correct incentives to consumers for acting in the optimum way requires providing them real-time or near-real-time data of their consumption costs Providing the consumers with real-time or near-real-time information cannot be achieved using present power system metering and communication infrastructure Smart grid promotes shift to a new paradigm: From Supply follows Demand to Demand follows Supply 28

15 4. Introduction to Smart Grid Today s hierarchical grid Smart grid Introduction to Smart Grid Key benefits of smart grid Effective integration of all types and sizes of electrical generation and storage systems Increase in number of smaller, distributed resources shift to a more decentralized model Improved reliability of supply Improved monitoring, diagnosis, and response to power quality issues Supply of various grades of power quality at different pricing levels Operational improvements Asset management improvements Active involvement of demand side in power system operation through Demand Side Management (DSM) concept Enable aggregation of resources through Virtual Power Plants (VPPs) 30

16 5. Smart Grid Solutions a) Demand Side Management (DSM) DSM in a Smart Home DSM via control centre DSM and use of energy storage systems Applying DSM in terms of smart charging of EV batteries b) Virtual Power Plant (VPP) VPP concept Structure of VPP Definition of entities involved in VPP operation Smart Grid Solutions Demand Side Mangement (DSM) in a Smart Home Smart Home is any private area equipped with smart meter Modern ICT allows energy management of a private household Flexible demand as a function of price Household Connection 32

20 5. Smart Grid Solutions Definition of entities involved in VPP operation Aggregator: The entity which aggregates and sells the permission to regulate the power consumption or generation rate of EVs and other DERs within a VPP to the market Charging Point (CP): The place where electric vehicles (EVs) plug in to exchange power with the grid Charging Point Manager (CPM): The owner and the operator of public charging points Disribution System Operator (DSO): The entity responsible for safe and secure operation of distribution network Wrap-Up Through the usage of many and new renewable and distributed resources, a complex heterogeneous system emerges A shift in paradigm is essential to the success: From Supply follows Demand to Demand follows Supply Smart Grid technology is critical to this shift 40
