R&D Nester is one of the Consortium members of the project TDX-ASSIST (Coordination of Transmission and Distribution data eXchanges for renewables integration in the European marketplace through Advanced, Scalable and Secure ICT Systems and Tools).

The project has a duration of three years and is funded by H2020 (LCE-5-2017). It has 12 partners from six countries (UK, France, Germany, Portugal, Belgium and Slovenia). Total EU financing for the project is approx. 4.2 Million Euros.

The project focuses on the interoperability of equipment and the coordination of actions with different objectives (congestion management, reactive control, flexibility management provided by renewable energy sources, improvement of network observability) in different time windows (real time, close to real time, operational planning, long-term planning) on the TSO-DSO border.

The project focuses on equipment interoperability . In that sense interface specifications for TSO-DSO information exchange based on specific Use Case will be developed and mapped to IEC standards (e.g. 61970/61968/62325) in order to support automated information exchange and network analysis between system operators and other relevant actors in the electrical power sector.

The main contributions of R&D Nester for this project will be focused on demos applied in the context of the Portuguese electrical system but taking into account European trends and best practices in each of the above domains. In this sense, the use of the R&D Nester laboratory to test the solutions developed is central to this project.

The Project kick-off meeting took place on the 2nd and 3rd October 2017, hosted at Brunel University London.

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 774500
