R&D Nester presented the paper “Survey Analysis on Existing Tools and Services for Grid and Market Stakeholders and Requirements to Improve TSO/DSO Coordination”


R&D Nester presented a survey entitled "Survey Analysis on Existing Tools and Services for Grid and Market Stakeholders and Requirements to Improve TSO/DSO Coordination".

This survey was developed under INTERRFACE Project "TSO-DSO Consumer INTERFACE aRchitecture to provide innovative grid services for an efficient power system", financed in scope of the H2020 program.

The European project INTERRFACE main objectives are to design, develop and exploit the interoperability of a pan-European network service architecture to act as an interface between the TSO and DSO and customers; and to enable the integrated and coordinated operation of all stakeholders for the use and acquisition of common services. This is a 4-year project that lasts from January 2019 to December 2022. It counts with the participation of 42 partners, from 16 countries, where R&D NESTER, REN and EDP Distribuição are from Portugal.

This paper was presented at 5th edition of IEEE conference "ISSE 2019 - International Symposium on Systems Engineering", a symposium that seeks to create an interactive forum for the advancement of the practice of systems engineering across the multiple disciplines and specialty areas associated with the engineering of complex systems.

The paper presented focus on the results obtained through a survey about existing tools and services, carried out to identify the current European landscape from grid and market stakeholders' point of view and to improve the coordination between the Transmission System Operators (TSOs), Distribution System Operators (DSOs) and market participants'. The main conclusions of the survey analysis are related with the acknowledge of current tools and services characteristics and also identify the needs and challenges foreseen in the future energy system. The outcomes of this survey will be key in the next phase of the project, where the service design and reference architecture design will be tackled, as well as for the implementation of the interfaces of these tools to the IEGSA platform*. 

R&D Nester paper presentation stimulated the curiosity of the audience about this IESGA platform that will be developed within the project INTERRFACE and how this survey analysis and results will be used in the designing phase of the common architecture which will enable the connection, data and information exchange with existing data hubs across Europe, where TSOs, DSOs, market participants and customers are connected.

* Interoperable pan-European Grid Services Architecture to act as the interface between the power system (TSO and DSO) and the customers and allow the seamless and coordinated operation of all stakeholders to use and procure common services.
